If Harry Reid really cared about what American’s wanted, Obamacare would not be the law of the land. His so called “nuclear option” is not what Americans want. Corey Boles explains the situation in The Wall Street Journal.
“We’re wondering why the majority leader is thinking about the nuclear trigger,” Mr. McConnell said. “Why this threat to blow the Senate up when the president’s getting his nominees?”
The dispute has raised questions over Mr. Obama’s impending decisions on who should succeed Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who announced her resignation Friday, and Elizabeth Duke, a member of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, who said last week she is leaving in August.
Mr. McConnell said on Sunday that he “can’t guarantee there won’t be a spirited debate” when the Senate considers the next nominee for the homeland security job.
