GOP blocks Schumer effort to adjourn Senate until after election

 JORDAIN CARNEY

EXCERPT:

Republicans on Monday shot down an effort by Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to adjourn the Senate until after the election, a move that would have effectively punted Judge Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court confirmation until after Nov. 3.

Schumer moved to adjourn the Senate until Nov. 9, with the caveat that if a coronavirus relief deal was reached by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin that they would return to vote.

"This is the most rushed, most partisan, least legitimate Supreme Court nomination process in our nation's history ... and it should not proceed," Schumer said.

But Republicans in a 48-42 vote pigeonholed Schumer's request. The Senate is expected to come back into session on Tuesday.

"I'm glad we just voted down the motion by the Democratic leader to adjourn because we have work to do here, including the COVID-19 legislation which we need to be here to be working on. I'm glad that [the] adjournment motion was unsuccessful. Yes, we have to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court," said Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio).

Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) called Schumer's move a "temper tantrum."

Schumer's attempt to adjourn the Senate comes as Republicans are barreling toward a confirmation vote to fill the Supreme Court vacancy early next week.

And he's exactly correct. Typical infantile Democrat tantrum.
