Hi, Im Thom Tillis, Senator from the great state of North Carolina. I want to speak with you today about the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court. Its a topic that has generated a lot of attention – and frankly, a lot of misinformation, especially since President Obama named a nominee earlier this week. There are a couple of things that make this vacancy unique. First, the seat became vacant in the middle of an election year, literally as Americans are casting their ballots to help choose the next President of the ed States. Second, the seat will determine the balance of the court for generations to come, as were replacing the incomparable Antonin Scalia. Justice Scalia was widely admired and respected for defending the original intent of the Constitution and its prescribed separation of powers, and he served as a critical check on President Obamas executive overreaches. While the Constitution allows the President to nominate a Supreme Court justice, our Founding Fathers also made sure to give the Senate advice and consent authority, to help protect the integrity of our system of checks and balances. The Senate can confirm a nominee, we can reject a nominee, or we can simply choose to withhold consideration of the nomination altogether, so the American people can weigh in on this important decision. This is about principle, not the person the President has nominated. And its why the majority of the Senate has chosen to use this unique situation as an opportunity to let the American people have a voice. The President and Democratic leaders arent exactly thrilled with giving the American people a voice. And contrary to their claims, the Senate is doing its job and fulfilling its constitutional obligation by deferring consent in order to let the peoples voice be heard. Both sides can respectfully agree to disagree, but its now time to move on to address the many pressing challenges facing our nation. We know good things happen when both parties in Washington cast aside their areas of disagreement and instead focus on identifying areas of common ground. We saw that last week when the Senate passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act, bipartisan legislation that gives states and local communities vital tools they need to combat the painkiller and heroin epidemic. Its a great accomplishment, but there is still much more work to be done this year. We need to fund our military and make sure our brave men and women have the equipment and training they need to keep themselves and our nation safe. We need to ensure veterans are receiving the best health care possible and more healthcare choices. And we need to hold VA bureaucrats accountable. This year, Ill be leading an effort to reform the militarys health insurance program – and work to ensure that military families with autistic children have access to the care and the therapy they need. Senate Republicans aly have their sleeves rolled up and were y to get this and much more done. The question now is what choice the President and the Democratic leaders will make. Will they join us in doing our jobs on behalf of the American people? Or will they instead seek to further divide our nation by turning the Supreme Court process into a blatantly partisan back and forth? Are they going to resort to blocking and sabotaging important legislation and good-faith efforts to help the American people…all in the name of seeking to score cheap political points in an election year? Senate Democrats should remember the message the American people sent, during the 2014 election, which resulted in a new Senate Republican majority and 12 new Republican Senators, including myself. American voters made it clear they were sick and tired of the bitter partisanship and inaction of the then Democrat-controlled Senate. And they were frustrated with the Presidents over-reliance on executive orders to bypass attempts at compromise and cooperation with Congress. For the good of the nation, I hope the President and the Democratic leadership do not repeat their mistakes of the past. I hope theyll accept, however reluctantly, the fact that the American people will have a voice in this Supreme Court decision, and start focusing on the issues that concern hardworking Americans. I hope the Presidents final months in office will be spent working with both parties to do great things for our nation. Thats what the American people want. Thats what the American people deserve. Thank you for your time, God bless you and may God continue to bless the ed States of America.201603/43290672 books words author autobiography novel non-fiction hardback paperback volume publisher page spine introduction preface chapter encyclopaedia margin book review dedication acknowledements textbook picture sci-fi illustration graphs inspired by co-written by atlas a classic horror dictionary thriller cookbook bestseller phrases cover design publishing house detective story be based on a true story a collection of short stories/poems can’t put it down …from cover to cover beginner a: what are you ing?

I feel as though my whole family is ganging up on me.LH: 既然你爸爸妈妈还有你都说你打电话回家太少,那恐怕情况确实是如此。不过,他们可能不了解你是工作和学习太忙了,所以才没法经常给他们打电话啊!不过,Larry,你说你家人gang up on you. 那是什么意思?LL: If two or more people join together against another person, then they are "ganging up" on that person.LH: 噢,gang up on someone就是合伙对付某个人的意思。所以你觉得你们全家联合起来埋怨你。LL: Exactly, maybe they think that if they gang up on me, then I'll be sure to call them at least every other day.LH:那你以后会不会隔一天就给他们打电话呢?其实,这也可以做到嘛。象我们现在休息的时候,你就可以打。说几句话就可以了嘛!LL:Has anyone ever ganged up on you, Li Hua?LH: 嗯,我不记得有什么人联合对付过我。哎,不过我记得在我们家附近有几条经常联合起来欺负我邻居的猫。那只可怜的猫最后只好跳到屋顶上去了。LL: That's a good example, Li Hua. In my house, it was the opposite. We had three cats and one dog. The cats used to gang up and chase the dog around the house.LH: 啊!原来在你们家是刚好相反。三只猫追一条。嘿!真有意思!你们家的一定很瘦小。我还没听说过有会怕几只猫的呢!LL: Actually, he was a pretty big dog; he just wasn't very brave.

How about now? Are you still a basket case? Or have you adjusted to life in the U.S.?LH: 嗯,现在我只有在考试的时候才会紧张。每学期总是有一个礼拜,我会紧张得睡不着,吃不下。LL: I didn't realize that exams turned you into such a basket case.
