Tell Sen. Chuck Grassley: Stop obstructing and allow a vote on President Obama's Supreme Court nominee

Dear 5849376,

Since the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, Senate Republicans, including Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee Sen. Chuck Grassley, have been promising to block President Obama's nominee to replace Justice Scalia on the Supreme Court.

President Obama has the constitutional duty to nominate a new Supreme Court justice with the advice and consent of the Senate. CREDO activist Penelope Mazza started a campaign on CREDOMobilize.com, which allows activists to start their own petitions. The petition, which is to Sen. Chuck Grassley, asks the following:

President Obama has the constitutional duty to nominate a new Supreme Court justice with the advice and consent of the Senate. If you obstruct the president's nominee from receiving fair hearings or an up-or-down vote, it would be an unprecedented abdication of your constitutional responsibility and we would be without a full-functioning Supreme Court. 4-4 cases would be sent back to the lower court and that decision will stand. Allow for fair hearings and an up-or-down vote on the president's Supreme Court nominee.

Tell Sen. Chuck Grassley: Allow for fair hearings and an up-or-down vote on the president's Supreme Court nominee. Click here to sign the petition.

President Obama — twice elected by the American people — has the constitutional duty under Article II to nominate a new Supreme Court justice with the advice and consent of the Senate. If Sen. Grassley obstructs the president's nominee from receiving fair hearings or an up-or-down vote, it would be an unprecedented abdication of constitutional responsibility.

Every Supreme Court nominee since 1980 has been given an up-or-down vote within 125 days of nomination. It's outrageous that with over 300 days left in President Obama's term, Republicans in the Senate are refusing to consider the president's nominee before one is even named. It's pure partisan obstruction.

Senate Republicans, including Sen. Grassley, are making it clear that they are willing to subvert the Constitution in order to have a chance to appoint a justice who opposes women's health care, sides with corporations over workers, will allow big money to continue to hijack our elections, and more.

Tell Sen. Grassley: Allow for fair hearings and an up-or-down vote on the president's Supreme Court nominee. Click the link below to sign the petition.
