Since Senate Democrats have decided to stake their claim by delaying President Trump’s administration from moving forward with their full operation, Republican Senators finally had enough.
On Wednesday morning, fed-up GOP Senators took a vote, changed the rules and pushed through two extremely important cabinet picks that are essential to helping President Trump continue making America great again.
The Hill has the story:
Senate Republicans pushed through a pair of President Trump’s Cabinet nominees Wednesday, upending standard committee rules to circumvent a Democratic boycott.
The Senate Finance Committee advanced a pair of Trump’s nominees with only Republican members present — Steven Mnuchin to head the Treasury Department, and Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) as secretary of Health and Human Services.
By unanimous consent, the Republicans gathered in the hearing room agreed to change the committee’s standing rules, which normally require at least one member of each party to be in attendance for committee work to proceed.
Republicans made the unusual move after Democrats refused to attend a vote on the nominees for two days running, arguing the pair had made misleading statements to lawmakers that needed to be rectified.
