President Barack Obama has about a year left in his term and plans to work up until the very end of it, which means nominating a Supreme Court Justice to replace Antonin Scalia. However, a signed document by members of the GOP Senate indicated no committee meetings will be held until the end of Obama’s term.

POTUS, fully aware of the political pettiness taking place, took to Twitter to corral his supporters to urge the Senate to stop the dilly-dallying and went as far as to use the hashtag #DoYourJob

In the short video, which has received nearly 8,000 retweets it states every Supreme Court Justice has received a vote within 125 days.
Looks like it’s politics as usual in Washington, D.C.
