Chuck Schumer should come to his senses for the good of the country. He is a notorious deal-maker, especially when there is something in it for him, so there is no good reason for him not to make a deal with President Trump.
Except for politics. Take health care. We need a deal with both democrats and republicans. After the Paul Ryan debacle, Trump should offer an olive branch to Schumer and Chuck better take it.
But looking at Chuck Schumer’s recent statement saying he will filibuster Neil Gorsuch nomination to the Supreme Court.
Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley immediately stepped in to warn Chuck Schumer. He cautioned Democrats do filibuster Gorsuch at their own political peril.
“I think you got to consider that there’s 48 Democrats and 10 of them are from red states that were elected where Trump carried that it seems to me that when they go home and their constituents know how good this guy is, it’s going to be a tough time for them to vote against him,” Grassley told The Daily Caller.
Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch dropped another bombshell on the head of Chuck Schumer hinting he may change the rules entirely. Hatch said Republicans could make it so only a simple majority would be necessary to move along to a final vote as opposed to 60 votes.
“It depends on what [Schumer] does if he if going to play the obstructionist game. It may be all we have left. We may have to exercise it. I don’t particularly want to because I think it’s a bad– It’s not a good precedent, but they’ve already said it, so– I mean they have to. I hope not. I hope there’s use of common sense here,” Hatch said.
According to ABC News polls, 21 percent of voters said that appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court were “the most important factor” in the ballot that they cast on election day. These voters, according to ABC News, overwhelmingly favored Trump, 57 to 40 percent.
