To: Sen. Thom Tillis (NC-2)

Sen Tillis: Don't stand in our way!

The constitution is clear in its directive for the Senate's role in providing advice and consent to the President regarding his nominee to the Supreme Court. In the past 60 years, every nominee has had a hearing before Congress. This year should be no different. Senator Tillis, the people of North Carolina don’t have time for your political games. It’s time to get to work!

Why is this important?

Article II, Section 2 lays out the Senate's role in providing advice and consent to the President regarding his nominee to the Supreme Court. In the past 60 years, every nominee has had a hearing before Congress. This year should be no different.

Unfortunately, Senate Republicans, including our own North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis, have already said they will not consider any nominee to the Supreme Court whom President Obama delivers to them. By refusing to consider any nominee before any are even put forward, Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee are clearly violating their constitutional duty to the American people.

Next week arguments will be heard in the Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstadt case. The verdict in the case may impact whether opponents of abortion will continue to pursue their strategy of attacking providers as a way to stop access to legal abortion, and will have far-reaching consequences right here in North Carolina.

Playing politics with women's health isn't just wrong, it's dangerous.

  • Dear Senator, This will be my second message requesting an answer which you usually would have sent by now. I am seriously concerned that you will destroy your constituent base by standing with the unpopular and even hated members of your party. Your party is reeling with the madness being perpetrated on America by your fucking candidate for president. I am sincerely interested in hearing why you might be standing with a bunch of lameass idiots who are defying our Constitution. Seriously,...
