    we have the votes to confirm all of these nominees regularly - with an up or down vote in the Senate.

    No recess appointments.

    Better to delay the start of the recess and have an up or down vote on the nominee rather than a disputable recess appointment.

    •  Moot? (0+ / 0-)

      My question is ... are the NLRB recess appointments moot because of subsequent confirmations and can the decisions of the recess appointed members simply be affirmed in mass.  Basically, remove any immediate effect of a Supreme Court ruling that went against PBO.

      Not sure but I think there are still some vacancies and some candidates not wanted by GOP.
