No-Show Republicans Are Costing Small Businesses

Senate Republicans are stonewalling Biden nominees for political reasons, according to GOP Sen. Jim Risch- including GOP Sen. Jim Risch.

“Spot the difference at today’s Small Business Committee,” wrote Sen. Mazie Hirono in a caption to the above photo posted to Twitter November 17, 2021. “Left: Dems are ready to get the job done. Right: the ‘pull yourself up by your boot strap’ party didn’t show up for work, again.”

Republican Senator James Risch (R-Idaho) is one of the few Republicans willing to be perfectly honest about why so many Biden nominees are still mired in the confirmation process.
