Senator Portman still won't do his job

Our less-than-illustrious Senator Portman actually met with Merrick Garland this week and called him an "impressive guy," according to USA Today. However, that does not mean that ol' Rob has any intention of doing his elected duty to the people of the State of Ohio. He still wants the "people to decide" (on someone who isn't Barack Obama) before actually holding hearings and a vote. Why would ol' Rob want a functioning Supreme Court? It is far more important to service the talking Turtle of Kentucky, Mitch McConnell, than to have a federal government that represents the people and does the work of the people.

The details are here in this week's Progress Ohio newsletter: http://progressohio.org/april-9-15-2016/?akid=979.655902.iPGiyF&rd=1&t=1

The story includes a link for contacting ol' Rob to remind him of his Constitutional responsibilities, since they seem to have slipped his mind.
