    Default Hoffa Statement on Nomination of Judge Garland to Supreme Court

    (WASHINGTON) – The following is the official statement of Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa on President Obama’s nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court.

    “The President has made a strong choice for our next U.S. Supreme Court justice. Judge Garland is a highly experienced, well-qualified nominee, and a good choice for working families.

    “Now that President Obama has made his choice for the nominee, Congress must not delay in doing its job and moving forward on the nomination. Our next Supreme Court justice deserves a full hearing and a vote in a timely manner.

    I believe that congress should have the hearings on this.. They are only embarrassing themselves like a bunch of school buddies.. If they don't like him then vote no.. But this is something that has been done for ages and it will never change.. You have four conservatives and four liberals on the bench right now and both parties want to make sure their guy gets in..

    Obama had two picks. The Senate said they would refuse to hold hearings on any Obama nominee so the voters would have say in the next president they choose. Period Obama politics once a-gain putting the republicans in a bad light

    The republicans have no one to blame but themselves.

    The Republicant's do a stellar job of casting a bad light on themselves all on their own.

    This is the way politics is played..Democrats have done as many times as the Republicans have. This is why we need change in Washington.
