ALG - Adegbile fails in Senate


March 5, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement praising the defeat of Debo Adegbile in the U.S. Senate to head the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division:

"At long last, basic political survival instincts may have taken over for Democratic Senators.  A vote for Abegdile was a near certain political death sentence as evidenced by the endangered Democrats who joined Senate Republicans in opposing his nomination.  Now that Senators are actually listening to voters, perhaps Obamacare can be legally delayed by Congress as opposed to being delayed at the whim of the President."
