In response to promises from Republican Senators including Ted Cruz, Mitch McConnell, and Wisconsin’s own Ron Johnson that they would obstruct any Supreme Court nominee put forth by President Barack Obama, former U.S. Senator Russ Feingold issued a statement.
“The authors of the U.S. Constitution did not outline a two-party system. Nor did they imagine that a plan for reasonable checks and balances would become a tool to empower petty obstructionists like Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson.”
That succinct statement is precisely why I can’t wait until Russ Feingold is once again representing Wisconsin in the United States Senate.
