The death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has caused a monumental political standoff.
The vacant seat upsets the former 5-4 conservative majority on the Court.
Just moments after Justice Scalia’s death was confirmed, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared that the Senate wouldn’t approve of any nominee President Obama put up. Instead, he said that the next President should get to decide.
Subsequently, every Senate Republican has agreed with this reasoning, including Sen. Pat Toomey.
Senator Casey, meanwhile, has made it clear that he believes the Court should not remain deadlocked for such a long period of time.
So we leave the question to our readers.
Do You Agree or Disagree With Sen. Toomey’s Belief That Justice Scalia’s Supreme Court Seat Should Be Filled By the Next President?
- Agree (60%)
- Disagree (40%)
