Senate should de­lay Supreme Court justice vote

The Morning Call - - Town Square -

As a Penn­syl­va­nia Repub­li­can, I am shocked at the cur­rent Senate pro­ceed­ings. We must wait un­til af­ter the elec­tion to con­sider Supreme Court justice nom­i­na­tions. Do­ing oth­er­wise would cause us to lose the in­tegrity that is the main­stay of our party, and of con­ser­va­tive thought in gen­eral.

To rush any­thing as crit­i­cal as a Supreme

Court nom­i­na­tion now, when we rightly caused a lengthy de­lay in a pre­vi­ous nom­i­na­tion to en­sure that our new pres­i­dent had his choice of nom­i­na­tion, would be both hyp­o­crit­i­cal and un-Amer­i­can.

For­tu­nately, Sen. Toomey is known for ris­ing above the petty politics run­ning ram­pant in Wash­ing­ton, and we must count on him to en­sure that de­ci­sions re­gard­ing our Supreme Court are above re­proach.

How­ever, our sen­a­tors need our sup­port. We should all write or call them both to urge them to hold off on Supreme Court de­ci­sions un­til we can do it the right way, af­ter the elec­tion. This way we will show that our Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment re­tains the high­est level of in­tegrity.
