Obama's Nominations Blocked Again In Senate
Originally published on Fri November 1, 2013 3:46 am
Senate Republicans have once again blocked President Obama's nominees.

Two nominations failed within less than an hour on Thursday, and Democrats may once again threaten to change Senate rules so Republicans can't easily derail another nomination.
