My HUNDRED AND ELEVENTH Open Letter To Senator Pat Toomey

I'll be dropping this letter to Senator Pat Toomey in the mail today:
Dear Senator Toomey:

It's me, again - the constituent who writes for the local Pittsburgh-based political blog, "2 Political Junkies."

I've written to you a number of times about the Supreme Court. Your party derailed Merrick Garland's confirmation to the court by simply refusing to allow it to come to a vote. The idea, we were told, was that it was it was too close to the 2016 presidential election.

This past week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was asked what the Senate would do were it in a similar situation during the 2020 presidential election

"Oh, we'd fill [the seat]," he said.

This week's question: Do you agree with your Majority Leader's obvious double standard? It seems to be indicative of how completely your political party has reversed itself regarding presidential authority. What it would never agree to with a Democratic president, it's more than happy to deliver to this current Republican one.

Your thoughts?

Thank you and I await your response.
And I will be posting whatever response I get from him or his office.

Oh come on.
If the Democrats have taken the Senate in the 2018 Blue Wave, Trump would not be able to confirm a new Supreme Court Justice.
