Looks like the Democrats are going to spend the next four years making their opposition strategy civil disobedience instead of legislating.
From the Washington Examiner:
Democrats on Tuesday “boycotted” a scheduled Senate Finance Committee vote to advance the nominations of President Trump’s picks for the treasury and health and human services departments, preventing the votes and forcing Republicans to reschedule.
The committee was supposed to vote on the nominations of Steven Mnuchin for treasury secretary and Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., for secretary of health and human services. But the panel needed at least one Democrat present to conduct the vote, and with none present, angry Republicans were forced to reschedule.
“I’m very disappointed in this type of crap,” committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said to the half-empty hearing room.
