Schumer Says He’ll Oppose Gorsuch Nomination, Sets Up Filibuster Showdown With GOP

On the final day of the confirmation hearings for Judge Neil Gorsuch, the Senate Democratic leader announced his opposition to the Supreme Court nominee.

In a speech on the Senate floor, Chuck Schumer said Gorsuch “will have to earn 60 votes for confirmation,” setting up a showdown with Republican leaders who may attempt to change Senate rules.

If Gorsuch “cannot earn 60 votes, a bar met by each of President Obama’s nominees and George Bush’s last two nominees, the answer isn’t to change the rules,” Schumer said. “It’s to change the nominee.”

    Time for McConnell to grow a spine and act like Reid did when he ran the Senate. If the Democrats filibuster, go “nuclear”. Call a cloture vote, shut Schumer up, and move on. Remember, elections have consequences, especially for the “Party of Whine”.

    The head of the Socialists party still doesn’t get it; They lost and now they’re flailing because Americans rejected their headlong charge into outright Socialism for this country! Their backup plan is to try to obstruct everything Trump is doing to get this country back on track. Manufacture false charges and character assassination included.

    1. chocopot says:

      They are not “socialists.” Get it right: they are communists, plain and simple, and their goal for this nation is to create a communist dictatorship. They have been working at it for half a century, and are getting way too close to succeeding.
