After President Trump announced his pick for the Supreme Court, America has been holding their breath to see what would happen. The Democrats were beyond miffed that former President Obama’s choice (Merrick Garland) never made it through the confirmation hearing process, so they took their vengeance out at the Republicans these past two weeks.
Judge Neil Gorsuch has been pushed around by the Senate Democrats throughout the confirmation hearing process, and then delayed the vote to confirm Gorsuch by one week.
This past week, Senate Democrats threatened a filibuster to stop the vote for Judge Gorsuch, but the Senate Republicans decided to use the “nuclear option” and vote for Gorsuch, only needing a simple majority vote.
So now, here we are. The Senate will vote with a simple majority in favor of Gorsuch, and he will soon take the oath. Are you ready for a full Supreme Court, with Judge Neil Gorsuch as our newest justice?
