Politics As Usual

The US Senate made a historic rules change on Thursday that will dramatically alter nominations to the supreme court. By a vote of 52-48 along party lines, Republicans voted to change Senate precedent for how justices are confirmed to the nation’s highest judicial branch, and end the filibuster for supreme court nominations.


The drama began on Thursday morning when a majority of Democrats voted to block Gorsuch’s confirmation, pushing Republicans to begin the process of changing the Senate rules.
