Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund: Full Senate Should Pass Gridlock Reform to Stop Democrats’ Obstruction of Pres. Trump Nominees


Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting to the Senate Rules Committee vote to pass Senator James Lankford’s (R-Okla.) Gridlock Reform proposal to stop Democrats’ abuse of Senate rules to obstruct President Trump’s nominees.

“Americans are sick and tired of Senate Democrats abusing the rules of the Senate to create gridlock and unnecessarily stall President Trump’s well qualified judicial and executive branch nominees. The partisan games must end and that is why Senator James Lankford is working to pass rule changes that will put an end to Democrats’ partisan and harmful scheme to obstruct the confirmation of President Trump’s well-qualified nominees. We applaud the Senate Rules Committee for passing Senator Lankford’s Gridlock Reform proposal and call on the full Senate to stop obstructing these nominees and ensure the rules can no longer be abused by a partisan minority.”
