The impasse regarding President Barack Obama’s replacement of the late Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court should be easy to fix [“Senate won’t act on Obama court pick,” News, Feb. 24].

Withhold the paychecks of senators who refuse to even meet with a possible replacement justice.

Most Americans, I’m sure, would understand that if you don’t work, you don’t get paid. No one is suggesting that these senators must accept any of Obama’s choices, but they do have to consider them.
