Thanks to Harry Reid (who first used the 'nuclear option' to push through the Democrat's picks and thumb his nose at the Republicans) the GOP is now in the driver's seat.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he now has the votes to end the Democrat's veto power and have Gorsuch confirmed Friday. The voting should take place at around 11:30 a.m.
The rule change would change the 67 vote threshold needed to a mere majority of 51 votes.
Gorsuch, 49, is a highly qualified justice with a decade of federal appeals court experience and Senate Republicans say he will be a strong addition to the court.
Democrats say putting him on the court will result in more decisions favoring corporations over working-class Americans. These hypocrites are whining over the refusal last year to consider Obama's liberal choice of Judge Merrick Garland in spite of Joe Biden's rule of not seating a Supreme Court judge in the final days of a presidency until after the next election.
There are four Democrats who voted with the GOP for Gorsuch: Michael Bennet (D-CO), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Joe Donnelly (D-IN).
Thank you Hairy Weed.
