U.S. Rep Gregory W. Meeks Statement on Ending Obstruction in the Senate
WASHINGTON, D.C. – November 22, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — Excerpt: I urge the Senate to vote on the president’s nominees to judicial courts, Jeh Johnson to be Secretary of Homeland Security, and Congressman Mel Watt (D-NC) to head Federal Housing Finance Authority.
WASHINGTON – Congressman Gregory W. Meeks (NY-05) released the following statement on the Senate filibuster:
“I applaud Leader Reid and the Senate Democrats for taking a stand against the unprecedented level of obstructionism against the president’s agenda. I urge the Senate to vote on the president’s nominees to judicial courts, Jeh Johnson to be Secretary of Homeland Security, and Congressman Mel Watt (D-NC) to head Federal Housing Finance Authority.
“In the 219 years prior to this administration, the Senate blocked a total of 86 nominees, in the last five and half years Republicans have blocked 82 nominees. Right now, more 75 nominees currently await confirmation by the Senate. With the threat of a filibuster off the table, I hope that the Senate can now get on to the business of confirming nominees and passing legislation to put Americans back to work.”
