    I remember when the Republicans decided to go with a simple majority rules and got rid of the nuclear option because it made it easier to block Obama.

    Now? They want to bring it back. I knew that when they changed the rules a few years back it would come back to bite them in the butt.

    McConnell needs to do this with all Trump's nominations. The dems are obstructing everything. So its "petal to the metal".

    But when packing the lower courts doesn't work out for ya'll, you'll still have your 2nd Amendment solution handy right?
