Nuclear Option

The Democrats were going to block every Supreme Court nomination by President Trump. Without question, Gorsuch is qualified. The Democrats' opposition to him is baseless.

Elections have consequences. Hillary Clinton lost. Democrats do not control the House or the Senate. The American people gave Republicans the power. Democrats need to deal with that.

The Democrats' partisan filibuster of Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch was unprecedented in U.S. history. The Democrats are responsible for the rule change.
Every single Republican voted to invoke the Reid Rule, including some who had expressed a strong hesitancy to do so; that's how indefensible Democrats' conduct has been. The Senate will now reach cloture on the nomination with 51 votes, setting up a final confirmation tomorrow. It's over. Neil Gorsuch will be the next Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.
Since that's what it takes, nuke it up!

There was no other option.
