Get out of the way is the answer BUT how does that get accomplished?


That was my post in Reply #6 above.  It says in the Rules that it takes a two-thirds (67) vote to change rules.  When Reid changed the Rules in 2013, they had 60 in the Senate, but not 67 to change the Rules, so I am not sure how they did it.  I guess since they had 60, it really didn't matter,  They couldn't Officially Change the Rules, but they could do what they wanted because they had 60 and the Reps could not Filibuster anything.

How come when REID was there they did anything they wanted to do. Now the PUBS have the majority and the DEMS still rule???

Pubs don't have 60, and they have traitors in their ranks.

My understanding is -- Gorsuch is not the problem -- the problem is the next nominee.  If Ruth continues to turn into a prune, that may come sooner rather than later -- anybody's guess is as good as mine...

Right, Gorsuch just puts things back like the were before.  The next one swings the Court to the Conservatives.  That will be the big one.

Wish I could take that to the bank Undecided
At the very best, Gorsuch will prove to be a worthy replacement for Scalia. Any less, and we'll have a lesser Court.
I remember when Roberts was touted as the benchmark for conservative judges - the very same who was single handedly responsible for giving the coutry Obamacare.

.....many blame Roberts' opinions on the mind altering epilepsy seizure drugs he is on.  I think that's obvious by the goofy smile he always wears on his face. Shocked

That story seems rather Bogus to me.  They don't even tell what he is taking so how can they say it is "mind altering".  Fake News

.....try this article.     Drugs he may be on can cause "troubling side effects, mental slowing and forgetfulness".
