Patty Murray To Vote 'No' On Gorsuch, Says She Doesn't Trust Trump

They're still sour over Senate Republicans blocking Garland, though Republicans were following precedent regarding the Biden rule. "I was devastated", Perkins said of Gorsuch's ruling.

Graham said he hoped that they would not have to change Senate rules.

Another option for McConnell: Republicans could change the rules (as Democrats did for lower court judges in 2013) and make it a simple 51-vote majority to confirm.

But nothing is more consequential than Neil Gorsuch's nomination to the Supreme Court, which was fast-tracked to the president's desk by the Koch Brothers-backed Federalist Society.

Asked about Schumer's plans at Thursday's press briefing, White House press secretary Sean Spicer deferred to the Senate leader.

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. While the hearing is only expected to run the course of a few days, the repercussions of Gorsuch's confirmation could steer the interpretation of our country's Constitution for decades to come. Currently, the Senate has 52 Republicans and 48 Democrats.

Once that came out, there was a risk of losing even more members of the Republican party to back the bill once voting commences. Although the Republican bill would also provide tax credits, they would not be created to keep pace with rising premiums.

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.

The confirmation hearing of Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch continues on Thursday.

Noting that Schumer had announced he would attempt to block any nominee before Gorsuch was even nominated, a McConnell spokesperson pushed back. "We believe that allowing cameras in the federal courthouse would open the courts to the public and bring about better understanding of the court and its important work", Grassley says.

There seems to be universal confusion in the Democratic camp about the role of the judiciary, and instead, Gorsuch has been questioned as though he would serve as an extension of the legislative branch.

First of all, I think Justice Kennedy may well leave this summer, and I think that we're talking about perhaps two nominees this year.
