Gorsuch Shows Few Cracks Heading Into Day 3 of SCOTUS Confirmation
While the American Health Care Act sputtered in Congress, Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced plans Thursday to invoke a filibuster of SCOTUS nominee Neil Gorsuch after the judge's third day of confirmation hearings.
In a speech in the Senate, Schumer cited the Gorsuch's "lack of candor" in the hearings and a "deep-seated conservative ideology".
Schumer said that Senate Democrats weren't impressed by Gorsuch, and he warned that it is going to be hard for him to get 60 votes.
Gorsuch's nomination is the latest assault in The Federalist's successful 30-year campaign to stack the judiciary with right-wing judges and shape the law to favor corporations over workers. Such a deal would give Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer a preemptive veto over the next Supreme Court nominee.
In short, the Democrats have nothing to win and a lot to lose by attempting to filibuster the Gorsuch nomination. In 2013, in the face of Republican obstruction, then-Senate majority leader Harry Reid eliminated filibusters on lower court nominees while keeping it intact for Supreme Court nominees.
"I had looked forward to Judge Neil Gorsuch sharing his views on the Supreme Court's critical role on some of the most important issues in America".
It is not yet clear whether Senate Democrats will stand united or opt to hold their fire, but they will likely have to decide fast.
Ten Democrats are up for reelection in states that Trump won, so Republican lobbying efforts have already been underway to push them not to filibuster.
Udall, a former New Mexico attorney general, said controversies swirling around President Donald Trump factored into his decision to oppose Gorsuch, a Westerner who has drawn generally strong reviews for his intellect and courtroom demeanor. Republicans said the only reason Reid did not include the High Court at the time is that there were no vacancies at the time. Even if the Democrats can maintain the filibuster, they are unlikely to block the Gorsuch appointment.
"We did not get any real answers to any real questions about what he thinks about the law and why", he said.
