Byrd Schools Frist on the Constitution
Today on the Senate floor Sen. Byrd asked Frist about his claim:
SEN. BYRD: I ask the Senator from Tennessee, I ask any Senator to respond to that question. Does this Constitution accord to each nominee an up-or-down vote on the Senate floor?
SEN. FRIST: The question: Does the Constitution say that every nominee of the President deserves an up-or-down vote. And the ABC is - the answer is: no, the language is not there.
The really sad part is, Frist will keep saying the same thing anyway. Never mind the Constitution.
