    Vice Presidential Nomination

    So how does this sound, we create one event in here: http://teddervision.com/forums/forum/140-public-events/ Or just everyone use the Senate thread. I don't care where it happens but it can be open to everyone Then, members of both chambers can ask questions with the guidelines by Jonathan : The hearing on the nomination of Marcus Walker of Ohio to be the Vice President of the United States shall begin. Mr. Walker shall be given the opportunity to give an opening statement, after which 72 hours shall be given for members of this body to ask the nominee their questions. Mr. Walker will then be given the opportunity to give a closing statement, after which there shall be a 72 hour discussion period, followed by a 72 hour voting period in both chambers. Does that sound alright to our Republican players? This way, everyone gets to participate whether they are in the house or senate, we get a more realistic feel to the game by actually having a hearing, and a vote will definitely take place to officially end this topic. @Richard

    Vice Presidential Nomination

    OOC: But yeah, we don't know any of that unless I missed it in his bio somewhere or if he has posted PRs that again I am unaware of. All we know is his decorated past which states nothing about where he actually stands. Obviously, he looks like a knight in shining armor because he hasn't done anything yet and knows how to construct a great backstory. Not the player's fault this character doesn't have a public stance yet, but would you honestly appoint a VP without knowing where he/she stands on important issues? Saying he is "highly qualified" and "a really good guy" isn't convincing enough. The only amount of substance in this debate is "It wasn't his fault Ohio went down in education rankings" and "Job growth" which was a good, supportive point. I had to pull that out of you guys. Since I cannot actually look up his stance anywhere, there is no way to know why we should confirm him. If he is a staunch homophobe, thinks illegals should get the death penalty, or believes in a war with North Korea, we better know about those things.

    Vice Presidential Nomination

    Mr. Speaker, We would not be doing our due diligence to the American people if we do not discuss the potential Vice President's record. To blindly do whatever the President wants would be foolish. Governor Walker has a great chance to be the next Vice President of the United States; however, the American people voted for Macmillan/Fitzgerald and not Fitzgerald/Walker. We would be doing a disservice to the American people if we did not take this matter seriously. The people cannot vote for Walker today, it is our job. We must be informed just like any other voter. Already, we saw the 25th amendment invoked due to a terrorist attack. We better ensure that whoever becomes Vice President is fully capable of being President. Many concerns from my constituents regard a variety of topics unaddressed by this chamber and Governor Walker. For example, where does Governor Walker stand on Afghanistan? Does he believe our nation should remain in Afghanistan or should we bring our troops home? Will he support increasing the gap between the wealthy and the poor through outdated and ineffective Reaganomics? Will he stand up for LGBTQ rights, women's rights, racial minorities, and religious minorities or will he find ways to restrict their freedoms because they conflict with a potential religious bias? Does Governor Walker unequivocally condemns the Alt-Right? Is a woman's right to choose going to be protected or infringed by a Vice President or President Walker? Will he gut funding to public education to fund charter schools? Where does Governor Walker stand on these issues? We don't know. This chamber must know if we are going to elect him. We must know because the people deserve to know who we are voting into the Vice Presidency. To say this has to be done quickly for the President's sake is foolish as it means that the President should get whatever he wants because he asks for it while the American people have to shut up and accept it. My constituents want answers on how Governor Walker will conduct himself as Vice President and more importantly, as President if circumstances ever come to that. We have a preserved line of succession already in place, Gentleman from Texas. Our nation has done a quite extensive amount of planning for that. Let's get to the bottom of who Governor Walker is and where he stands on the issues facing the American people. His resume is nice, but how does he plan to lead if called upon to do so? We must get to the bottom of that. I yield

    Vice Presidential Nomination

    Mr. Speaker, Can anyone in this chamber explain to me how Governor Walker's handling of Ohio's education system and increased poverty? Since taking office, Ohio has dropped from being ranked 16 in the nation to 23rd in the nation. In addition, *Ohio had among the largest gaps on national test scores between students living in poverty and their higher-income classmates, ranking 43rd in the nation. Ohio’s child-poverty rate rose to 23 percent last year from 18 percent in 2008, according to a report by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. That’s nearly 1 in 4 children living in households with incomes below the federal poverty rate, about $20,000 a year for a family of three. Apparently, children in poverty in Ohio are having less opportunity. Shouldn't we be seating a Vice President with a track record that better supports education for students with less opportunity? We need someone who lifts people up and decreases the gap between the wealthy and the poor. In Ohio, he made the gap wider and made less privileged youth have a harder to acquiring an education.
