Yes, that's exactly what we need. More ways for the minority party in the Senate to hold the Executive Branch hostage by refusing to confirm nominees.

If you don't agree with (or more likely, understand) the science, mock the science. A tried and true conservative strategy that supports the very argument they're mocking.
The Dems can't pass a budget in the Senate because the Pubs will filibuster any budget introduced. Both parties are responsible for the gridlock. Unfortunately no one in congress remembers how to compromise any more. They all believe "compromise" means "you do it my way." We used to be able to reach middle ground on issues and move them forward. Those days are gone, and the fault lies with both parties.
