The collective nature of the Democrats is amazing. I figured, with the surveillance news, and the evidence we have bouncing around between Evelyn Farkas and Susan Rice, some of the Democrats, for fear of losing their seats in the next election, would cut out their obstructionism and temper-tantrums over the Donald J. Trump victory last November. I underestimated the resolve of the Democrats to emulate the “borg,” and stand collectively together, even as their ship is sinking. The vote was essentially along party-line, 52-48, for cloture. The vote to confirm Neil Gorsuch will take place tomorrow.
“It’s a fight they have waged for decades with a singular aim, securing raw power no matter the cost to the country or the institution,” McConnell of Kentucky said on the Senate floor. “It underlies why this threatened filibuster cannot be allowed to succeed.”
Gorsuch, 49, has a decade of federal appeals court experience and unanimous support among both Senate Republicans and Democrats. When he was appointed to the Ten Circuit of Appeals, the Democrats were fine with Gorsuch. Then, and now, Gorsuch’s qualifications make him a strong addition to the court for decades to come.
In true socialistic bourgeoisie versus proletariat communist style, the Democrats have been saying that putting Gorsuch on the court will produce more decisions favoring corporations over working-class Americans.
Republican Senator John McCain had tried to forge a bipartisan deal to avert the rule change but gave up early this week after Democrats said they had enough votes to block Gorsuch.
In 2013, a Democratic-led Senate under Majority Leader Harry Reid voted to end filibusters of executive-branch and lower-court nominees following Republican obstruction of Obama’s choices. That eased approval of Trump’s cabinet this year, with key posts including the secretaries of Treasury, Education, Health and Human Services and the attorney general winning confirmation with 53 or fewer votes.
