This definitely shifts power back to conservatives in the SC.  It will be interesting to see what cases come to the supreme court now that interested parties wouldn't pursue before because they knew they couldn't get the outcome they wanted.  This will definitely change political dynamics for a generation or more.  

 

the ACA is dead as early as the October session and Roe v Wade will follow in 2021.

This country... can't even mourn an American Icon without fighting over her body and her seat. We are pathetic.

The ACA is the Republican health bill from the 90s. It's Mitt Romney's Republican law from Massachusetts in the early 00s.    Yet when Obama brought up the same law, suddenly it became a "go

I actually think it could be a good idea. The life time appointments were supposed to depolitize the Judiciary assuming both parties would use the powers of congress to vet potential judges and ensure

if you are paying attention to the Sunday Morning Talk circuit, you know the Stupid Democrats are doing exactly what I feared they would do. Stop focusing on the hypocrisy of McConnell and the GOP. Stop appealing to McConnell, Graham, and Cruze to honor their words and to uphold the principles they claim to govern by. You were outplayed 4 years ago, the voters gave us Trump, and you are about to be outplayed again; Start fighting back. The America you are appealing to doesn't exist anymore. The GOP has defined the Liberals as anti-business, baby killing, socialist anarchists and all you respond with is trying to appeal to logic and principle? Fucking idiots.

There are enough Republicans on record as being against this that making the public argument still makes sense...  There's really no other choice....  Unless murkowski, Romney, and 1-2 others vote against it ....nothing can stop them.

Thats the point. They should be engaging with Collins, Murkowski, Romney, and a few others behind closed doors while making it known publicly there will be repercussions  if the GOP goes down this road. Appealing to principle is a non starter. Honestly I don't think anything can stop McConnell. He knows he's on borrowed time with American demographics and the best way to delay it from happening is to stack the courts. It's his endgame and he's close to achieving it.

Collins and Murkowski have come out on record as saying a confirmation should wait until after the election.

They need 2 more. I think Romney joins them so that leaves one of the vulnerable senators. I also think McConneel cares more about pushing this appointment through than he does winning the presidential election or keeping the senate. Pushing it through means a huge conservative slant on the court for decades or generations. He'll gladly give up the short term gains that come with this election cycle if it means cementing control of the Judiciary long term.

Murkowski actually said after the president is inaugurated
