Just in case you’ve forgotten why the democrats lifted the filibuster from lower appointments, they couldn’t get anything through due to completely unnecessary obstruction. In the years from Washington to Obama there were only 68 filibusters. There were 79 in Obama’s first four years, under McConnell as the minority leader. Do you see the issue? They couldn’t get any appointments through.And totally unnecessary obstructions. The democrats were correct to attempt to block Gorsuch. It’s not even so much that the seat was absolutely stolen, it’s that Gorsuch’s record on corporations vs people is abysmal. Do none of you who support this wonder why 17 mil of dark money was pushing to get him in there? I’ve seen people on Facebook laughing about how they “won”. Um, if you’re a middle class, working person I can almost guarantee you didn’t just win.
We lost on Gorsuch but here’s the good news:
If we can elect 3 more Democratic Senators in 2018 we can stop EVERY future Trump/Pence. nominee in the 2nd half of their pp term.
If we can elect 12 more Senators and 24 more House members and 1 President in 2020 we can put Merrick Garland on The Supreme Court and as many others as we want and effectively nullify Gorsuch. Congress can expand the number of Supreme Court Justices at any time!
Let’s do it!
