Sign the Petition to

U.S. Senate

President Obama has nominated Judge Merrick Garland for the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge Garland has been lauded as a "consensus" pick" in the past, however some in the Senate are refusing to even meet with him.

Don't play politics with the Supreme Court, respect the constitution, and treat Judge Garland's appointment with the fairness and dignity that he, and the American people, deserve.

Signed,

President Obama has nominated Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court, but Senate Republicans have vowed to refuse to even meet Judge Garland, deciding to instead play politics with the nation's highest court. 

The longest wait for a nominee, from the time it was received to the time it got a vote, was 125 days. This is an incredibly low bar to meet, even for this incredibly disfunctional Senate.
