Well, that’s a wrap! Many conservatives saw this coming down the pike, and we’re ready for the consequences.
Sen. Mitch McConnell is going to have to use the Senate “nuclear option” to get Judge Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court bench. Democrats and Republicans overwhelmingly approved of Gorsuch a few years ago, and now hardline Democrats are fighting to keep him off.
Gorsuch has proven time and time again he enforces the law on the books and liberals can’t stand that. They want interpreters who are willing to change the law on how they feel.
McConnell best not back out of the “nuclear option,” or there will be hell to pay. Even President Trump suggested the Senate majority leader use the option.

Senate Republicans will have to use the “nuclear option” to get Judge Neil Gorsuch confirmed to the Supreme Court.
The procedural maneuvering that will likely culminate in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell moving to change the chamber’s rules is necessary because 41 members of the Democratic caucus have announced opposition to limiting debate on the Gorsuch nomination. That means they would support a filibuster and the need for 60 votes to get Gorsuch through to confirmation.
Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware became the 41st senator to announce opposition to cutting off debate at this afternoon’s Judiciary Committee meeting to consider the nomination.
At the Senate Judiciary Committee’s markup Monday, Democratic members of the panel previously in the unannounced column said they would oppose the nomination. That included ranking member Dianne Feinstein of California.
Her office confirmed she would also vote against limiting debate.
NEW: Senate Democrats now have enough votes to filibuster Neil Gorsuch. McConnell will likely trigger nuclear option https://t.co/45SRuJIpWq
