Homeland Security Committee Approves Bill to Streamline Nominations Process

Today, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee approved by Voice Vote a bill to “streamline the nominations process,” according to a press release.

The bipartisan Presidential Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011, S. 679 – sponsored by Rules Committee Chairman Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and Ranking Member Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and co-sponsored by Homeland Security Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman, ID-Conn., and Ranking Member Susan Collins, R-Me. – would eliminate Senate confirmation for about 200 presidential nominees and set in motion a process to streamline and consolidate the many forms nominees are required to fill out. The Rules Committee is working on a companion resolution to exclude a number of board and commission appointments from the Senate nomination process.

    This is a direct quote from our Arizona Tea Party:

    ” So there you have it folks, a group of U.S. Senators is trying to nullify the checks and balances installed into the U.S. Constitution to protect America from any one branch of government becoming to powerful, which leads to the robbing of freedoms from the American people. This is a prime example of why we need to gut the United States Senate as much as possible in 2012 and beyond. Fire every single one of these anti-American, Constitution-destroying tyrants and restore our government to being Of the People, For the People, and By the People. This is the danger of electing and reelecting progressive idelogues into our government. Pay attention people, as S. B. 679 opens the floodgates for more radical Socialists to be installed into our government without any accountability. Remember these Senators come 2012.

    Senator Kyl are you listening? Why are you supporting this unconstitutional law? Shame on you for not knowing the Constitution and your responsiblity to uphold it. You took an oath to protect the Constitution. Please come to your senses. You have served Arizona well. Don’t blow it here at the end of your time in the Senate.
