Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Ted Cruz is Tired of Senate Democrats – He’s Ready to do Anything to Appoint SCOTUS Justice

The U.S. Supreme Court has a vacancy and President Trump needs to fill the seat to get things moving again. Trump has someone in mind and the Republicans can get this done if they enact the “nuclear option.”

That option refers to the rule changes Democrats made when they had the majority, which allows for only 51 votes to move on with some types of Senate business instead of the customary 60 votes.

And here comes Ted Cruz.

Via The Hill:

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) said Republicans should fight to get President Trump’s coming Supreme Court nominee confirmed by any means necessary.

Trump has said he will be announcing his choice to fill the late Antonin Scalia’s seat on the bench next week.

Republicans will need at least eight Democrats to support Trump’s nominee to overcome the 60-vote filibuster hurdle. But Cruz suggested the GOP shouldn’t rule out the so-called “nuclear option” to reduce the threshold to a majority. The move would be a gamble, setting a precedent that could weaken the GOP’s position if Democrats come back into power.

In 2013, Democrats, who at the time held the majority in the Senate, triggered the nuclear option in order to confirm several of President Obama’s nominees. The move did not apply to the Supreme Court.

New Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said recently he regrets Democrats’ 2013 decision, which is now easing the confirmation of President Trump’s Cabinet nominees.

It’s time for the Republicans to stop playing and hold their feet to the fire. Shut them down like they did and refuse to look back.
