Senate Republicans just went nuclear. And the American people are their collateral damage.
When the Senate gaveled in this morning, Neil Gorsuch did not have the 60 votes needed to be confirmed to the Supreme Court. But rather than changing the candidate and finding someone worthy to sit on the Court -- someone who isn't indebted to corporations or billionaire backers, someone who believes in protecting the rights of workers, women, and LGBT people -- they decided to invoke the "nuclear option" and confirm him to a lifetime appointment on a 51-vote Republican majority.
If you're asking yourself "can they really do that?" -- the answer is yes, they can and they just did.
Frankly, I've had enough of Republicans abusing the power of their majority -- so let's throw them out. Pitch in $3 or whatever you can to help elect Democrats and take back the Senate. I know we can do it, but we need to get started right now.
