Patty Murray To Vote 'No' On Gorsuch, Says She Doesn't Trust Trump
Murray said one reason she's opposing Gorsuch is because of "chaos" in Trump's administration, pointing to his refugee and travel ban blocked by federal courts and an FBI investigation into the Trump campaign's connections with Russian Federation. West Virginia's Joe Manchin and Florida's Bill Nelson, Democrats facing voters next year, remain undecided on Gorsuch, their spokesmen told Reuters. But his decision to support the filibuster of Gorsuch is significant. I will be voting NO on Judge Gorsuch and will oppose a cloture motion ending debate on his nomination.
"In a statement released Friday, Reed said he is concerned that Gorsuch's "pro-corporate tendencies" would make justice hard for workers and consumers".
The announcement by Udall, D-N.M., came after Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's call on Thursday to block Gorsuch's nomination with a filibuster. Fischer counters that prominent Democrats had declared they would not consider any Supreme Court nominee made by President George W. Bush if a vacancy occurred in the last year-and-a-half of his presidency. "Additionally, Judge Gorsuch has an anti-worker record, he has shown hostility toward upholding disability rights, and with his inability to clearly state his position on Roe v. Wade and the position he took on women's access to birth control coverage, he's sent a message loud and clear that he would be a voice against women's health and rights". Yet, he was among the Republicans who refused to accord Garland a hearing - not because he wasn't eminently qualified, but only because he was President Barack Obama's pick. If the Democrats do indeed filibuster, the Senate could change the rules and lower the threshold to 51 votes (they have 52 now). The speakers included the father of an autistic boy whom Gorsuch ruled against.
