What benefit do Democrats see in obstructing Trump's Cabinet picks?


Using partisan politics, the Senate Democrats are delaying President Trump's Cabinet picks from taking office. Their slow-walking techniques are an embarrassment and unlikely to succeed in doing anything, yet they continue. Everyone expects the Supreme Court nominee to be treated equally when nominated. Democrats are boycotting hearings, using the rule that at least one person from the opposition be present for a committee vote to be valid.

    Your opinion of the former President isn't shared by everyone. Most of what Obama wanted, he got - and in hindsight, most of what he got was bad for America. His legacy is debt, unemployment, and a failed foreign policy which gave nukes to Iran..

    That is a two way street that just keeps the country from moving forward and making life better for all of us.

    It's exactly what Republicans did for the past eight years. It sucks when the tables turn, doesn't it?
