What's on the Floor next week?

Not the Republican budget. Despite Speaker Ryan’s call for regular order – which includes passing a budget – and the GOP’s insistence on “no budget, no pay,” we wanted to be sure you saw yesterday’s exchange between Whip Hoyer and Leader McCarthy on the House Floor. During colloquy, Whip Hoyer asked Leader McCarthy when Republicans intend to bring their budget to the Floor. Given GOP division over the budget resolution, you won’t be surprised by Leader McCarthy’s response. Check it out here.

Republican SCOTUS Quote of the Day

If you were wondering whether Republicans were prepared to be reasonable about President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Speaker Ryan’s response should clear it up:

“This has never been about who the nominee is.” [Speaker Ryan, 3/16/16]

So their opposition to the nominee has nothing to do with the nominee… Which means it’s all about partisan posturing.

Wouldn’t want to explain THAT to the American people.
