Congratulations, Democrats. You played yourselves.

Following the unprecedented filibuster of SCOTUS nominee Gorsuch, Republicans have proven that they aren’t going to lie down and accept this obstructionism.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell set in motion the so-called “nuclear option” on Thursday following the decision by Democrats to filibuster the appointment of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

In a 55 to 45 vote, Democrats successfully denied Gorsuch from receiving the 60 votes required under existing Senate rules to invoke cloture and end the debate, bringing the nomination to a vote.

Nominees only require a majority vote to be approved, as long as no senator opposes the nomination through a filibuster.

Senate Minority Leader Church Schumer, D-N.Y., has called on Republicans to change the nominee to someone more agreeable to Democrats to fill the seat of the late Justice Antonin Scalia rather than change the rules by invoking the nuclear option.

McConnell could not help pointing out the irony in Schumer’s remarks on Thursday, when the minority leader stated on the Senate floor, “Just as it seemed unthinkable decades ago that we would change the rules for nominees, today’s vote is a cautionary tale about how unbridled partisan escalation can overwhelm our basic inclination to work together and and frustrate our efforts to pull back, blocking us from steering the ship of the Senate away from the rocks,” adding, “There’s a reason it was dubbed the nuclear option.”

It’s sad that this even needs to be considered. Our government is divided on Trump’s clearly qualified SCOTUS nominee for the sake of being contrarian and America is going to suffer for it.
