Jeb Bush “It’s Really Not Important to Me” if Senate Schedules Vote on Obama Supreme Court Pick

With the passing of pro-life Justice Antonin Scalia, political discussion has turned to his replacement. Thankfully, Justice Scalia was one of the minority of justices who disagree with Roe v. Wade and its 43 years of virtually unlimited abortions.

Unfortunately, President Barack Obama is already looking to pack the Supreme Court with another pro-abortion extremist who will keep abortion on demand in place for another 43 years.

Some pro-life advocates say the  Senate must not hold a vote on any Scalia replacement, but instead should wait until a new president takes office. That allows the American people to select a new president and determine the course they want the Supreme Court to take on abortion.

While Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz take that position, it appears Jeb Bush disagrees.

SIGN THE PETITION: Do Not Allow a Vote on Any Obama Supreme Court Nominee

JEB BUSH: I think President Obama is going to submit a nominee and in all likelihood this person will be out of the mainstream and he’ll be rejected by the Senate. That’s his prerogative. He has every right to do it, and the Senate has every right not to confirm that person. That’s what I said. He clearly has the power to do it, but given his choice of Supreme Court justices in the past the Senate of the United States should not confirm someone whose out of the mainstream.

DANA BASH: But if I could just clarify, right now it sounds as though…


DANA BASH: …the Republicans who run the Senate aren’t even going to schedule a vote. You think that one should be scheduled?

JEB BUSH: It’s up to Mitch McConnell. That’s really not important to me.
