U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made this statement on Senate Democrats vote to change the rules of the Senate on November 22, 2013.
“Let’s call it what it was — a raw power grab by Senate Democrats and President Obama. Previous efforts to resist the temptation of turning the Senate into the House of Representatives were lost today and the ‘advise and consent’ clause for executive and judicial branch nominations was washed away.”
“But there is much more here than meets the eye”, he said.
“After today, I fully expect President Obama to stack the D.C. Circuit Court with liberal, rubber-stamp judges. This court has primary jurisdiction over lawsuits that challenge Obamacare regulations. It is no accident the rules were changed to stack this court. President Obama is committed to protecting Obamacare, his signature achievement, regardless of the damage done to millions of Americans. He is even willing to throw the judiciary into chaos if necessary. Any American who wants to bring a legal challenge to the thousands of Obamacare rules and regulations lost big today”, said Graham.
“The hold I placed on many Obama nominees until Congress was able to speak with the Benghazi survivors has been greatly eroded”, said Senator Lindsey Graham (source: http://www.lgraham.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=PressRoom.PressReleases&ContentRecord_id=8174c8b3-ca1b-d735-95f0-a4744b63254e&Region_id=&Issue_id=).
