Senators lament killing the filibuster but do it anyway

Fri, 04/07/2017 - 05:28

When it came time Thursday morning for Democratic senators to force the hand of their Republican colleagues, compelling them to employ the “nuclear option” to blow up the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees, Sen. Chris Coons looked physically ill. As the senator from Delaware’s name was called during a vote to end debate on Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the high court, Coons grimaced before voting “no,” along with all of his Democratic colleagues. On the other side of the aisle, 52 Republicans proceeded to vote in favor of doing away with the judicial filibuster, clearing the way for Gorsuch to be confirmed with a simple majority vote.
