Cruz Endorses Latest Senate Obamacare Repeal, So Do We

Mitch McConnell’s Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 is a Band-Aid when an amputation is needed. This is not what Congress has promised the American people and will only pave the way for a government-run, single payer system that Republicans will own. The Senate should, simply put, start over.

How Mitch McConnell Won the Battle to Confirm Gorsuch

Fred Barnes, Weekly Standard

Rather than scrapping tradition, the end of the judicial filibuster restores a longstanding tradition of not using it against nominees for judgeships. That tradition was tossed out in 2003 when Democrats began filibustering Republican nominees. That was new. The old way, the traditional way, was followed in the confirmation battle over Clarence Thomas in 1990. To say he was a highly controversial pick is putting it mildly. Despite this, no one called for a filibuster or said there's a rule that says 60 votes are required. Thomas was confirmed, 52-48.

Any reason for nerves in Gorsuch vote today?

The good news is it looks like Republicans are finally ready to show some backbone and call the Democrats’ bluff on the filibuster.
