Is anyone concerned?

I wonder how long it will be before someone in the MSM or, perhaps the Republican Party, mentions how many people are being poached from both houses of Congress which, in turn, is necessitating a slew of "appointments" - if that's what the kids are calling it these days.

I wonder if those who wrote the rules of appointments imagined that there would be five to ten percent of the U.S. Senate that was appointed by state governors rather than being elected by the voters? I wonder if Democrat-leading voters would be a little more concerned about this if it was a Republican senator who was poaching a Republican "majority"?

I wonder if there are data on how many appointments have been made in previous administrations?
