Will wonders never cease?
Democrats started it in 2013. Good on GOP for finishing it now.
WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans invoked the “nuclear option” Thursday, overturning the body’s rules so Neil Gorsuch could be confirmed to the Supreme Court with a simple majority vote.
The vote — entirely along party lines — was 52 to make the change and 48 against.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the change — from 60 to 51 votes — was necessary to break a Democratic filibuster intended to block the Colorado appellate judge.
“This will be the first — and last — partisan filibuster of a Supreme Court nomination,” McConnell said of the history-making step.
