The Democrats are becoming desperate. They will do anything to reject the agenda of President Trump. Fearing a Supreme Court that will tip the scales back to a sane institution focused on upholding the constitution, they feel the only way to stop it is to literally filibuster SCOTUS nominee Neil Gorsuch.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced his expected plans to vote “no” on Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court and promised that Republicans would have to overcome a Democratic filibuster in order to seat him.
“I have come to a decision after careful deliberation. I have concluded that I cannot support Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court,” the New York Democrat said Thursday.
Schumer went on to say that Gorsuch will have to overcome a “cloture vote” and “earn his confirmation.”
It’s time for Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans to use the nuclear option to bypass the filibuster. The Democrats have no shame. They are proving that notion day after day with their antics. Republicans shouldn’t be bogged down by how they feel the media will treat them by employing the only option that will create a path for Justice Gorsuch.
