Democrats Block Gorsuch Supreme Court Nomination

2

Senate Democrats have blocked Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court, setting up an expected Republican move to take the “nuclear option.”

The Senate failed to reach the 60 votes needed to advance Gorsuch’s nomination, garnering only 55 for the move while 45 senators opposed it. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell then strated to take the steps that lead to a historic vote to change Senate rules to cut off debate on Supreme Court nominations with only a majority vote.

The GOP holds 52 seats in the 100-member chamber.

  1. It is sad the children are having a tantrum because Hillary did not win, if she won it would be chaos in congress for the children would be playing with no rules and there would not be a teacher in charge to stop the chaos. People keep on voting for these people you will keep on getting the same result chaos and a do nothing congress again, because Hillary didn’t win so I am going to hold my breath until I die this is what the retaliation is all about. Cut your nose off to spite your face and guess what they are just going to have a very ugly no nose face.
