In all the hoopla over the SCOTUS nomination we have heard many say let the people speak so wait until after the election. It got me thinking should Senators and house members stop voting on any issue in the last quarter of their terms. How about a judge that is appointed for 15 years should they refuse to preside or make any decisions for the last 3 and 3/4 years of their appointment? If the highest elected official in the country isn't supposed to carry out their constitutional duty for a quarter of their time in office, why doesn't that apply to lower level officials? In the direct case of Mitch McConnell when does he pull his head back into the shell?
