Neil Gorsuch

Judge Gorsuch on Supreme Court by Easter?

Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner

Gorsuch's hearings have been set to begin March 20. The plan is for the nomination to be submitted to the full Senate in early April where it appears likely that he will surpass the needed 60 votes to avoid a parliamentary maneuver to get him to the court. Insiders said the goal is a vote before the Easter recess which begins on April 7, two days before Palm Sunday.

Jay Cost, The Weekly Standard

A vacancy is that rare opportunity for the people to remind the Court that its job is to protect our liberties without interfering unduly with our right to rule ourselves.

But politics is essential to republican government, and the Court needs politicizing, if only once in a while, to remind it who is really in charge.

The left wants judges who act like legislators or delegates to a perpetual constitutional convention, minting new rights and powers that reflect their personal feelings and policy choices. It also wants judges who give the Executive Branch “experts” in today’s vast, over-regulating administrative state the power to make law.
