|The "stolen" seat meant for Merrick Garland will be filled by Neil Gorsuch. Republicans go forth with the "nuclear option."|
Nearly a year ago, Antonin Scalia passed away. Then President Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland to fill the post of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. Republicans in the Senate quickly took to the junk food meica to denounce the nominee and said that any confirmation will happen with a new president.
Their stunt paid off. Now Donald J. Trump is the leader of this polarized and god awful nation.
Republicans have control of Congress, state governorships, and the White House. They look invincible. But all that changed in the first few months of Trump's leadership.
So far, Trump had imposed a ban on Muslims, immigrants and Americans traveling abroad. The Republicans are feverishly working on trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare).
Democrats have to watch the Republicans try to undo the legacy of Obama. And even though the party is feuding within its own ranks, Republicans are confident to get things done.
Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch to fill the vacancy of the Court. The Republicans are willing to do so at their own peril.
The Senate passed unilateral votes to get Gorsuch confirmed. The move was aided by four spineless Democrats. Now Friday, the Senate will vote on confirming Gorsuch before they take off for their umpteenth vacation.
The nuclear option is a procedure move to have a majority party get a candidate through with a simple majority vote.
The shit stinks in Congress.
The Republicans are extremely poor in leadership and governing.
The Republicans can't govern bipartisan. Trump and his allies are rolling back regulations on the environment, privacy and is working on conducting a possible war with Syria.
