I didn't realize setting up pro-forma sessions, like to prevent recess appointments, requires a unanimous vote....thats right every single senator for both parties agreed Rump should not be left to act on his own:

Republican Senate Blocks President Trump From Recess Appointments…

And remember, there’s some people who think the “UniParty” isn’t real. Meanwhile, republicans led the way in the Senate to initiate a rules process blocking President Trump from recess appointments during the upcoming Senate break. The pro-forma session process requires all Senators to agree to the rules maneuver; they did.

There are over 100 Trump nominations awaiting confirmation from the Senate. The Senators will not return until after Labor Day.

WASHINGTON DC – […] Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), doing wrap up for the entire Senate, locked in nine “pro-forma” sessions — brief meetings that normally last roughly a minute.

The move, which requires the agreement of every senator, means the Senate will be in session every three business days throughout the August recess.

The Senate left D.C. on Thursday evening with most lawmakers not expected to return to Washington until after Labor Day.

Senators were scheduled to be in town through next week, but staffers and senators predicted they would wrap up a few remaining agenda items and leave Washington early.

This is a good start. Senator Flake from Arizona is having problems. =D> He is one of many I will be working on to get replaced. With any kind of luck both he and McCain will be replaced.

"Republican Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake’s approval rating is at a drastically low number in his home state after he has continued to bash President Donald Trump according to a new Democratic Poll.
The left leaning polling group, Public Policy Polling (PPP) found only 18 percent approve of the job Flake is doing. Meanwhile 62 percent disapprove and 19 percent are not sure how they feel about him. These numbers come after Flake has continued to criticize Trump throughout his presidency and refused to endorse him during the 2016 presidential campaign.
If the 2018 mid-term election were held today, just 31 percent of respondents said they would support Flake’s re-election bid, compared to 47 percent who said they would support a generic Democratic opponent, according to the poll. …

His approval plummeted after he voted to repeal obamacare...coincidence?? =D>
Overall, 52% of Arizona voters surveyed for the poll said they were less likely to vote for Flake in his 2018 reelection bid because of his vote in support of the various Republican plans. Twenty-six percent said they were more likely to vote for him because of the vote, and 20% said it made no difference.

That's why he rolled out a new book claiming he's not one of them and indirectly claiming he shouldn't be replaced with a Dem.

Flake said he was a globalist. That is not going to go over well with the voters in Arizona.

As are all actual Republicans, it's been a cornerstone of the party for decades.
