On Thursday, Senate Republicans used the nuclear option to limit further debate from Democrats on SCOTUS nominee Neil Gorsuch.
Thanks to Harry Reid, Republicans used the same option as Democrats when they were in the majority. It is all fair game.
But that did not sit well with liberals who are still complaining about Merrick Garland’s “stolen” seat over one year later.
Republicans stole this seat on SCOTUS. We cannot trust Gorsuch to deliver equal justice for all Americans.

Stolen SCOTUS seat

This seat stolen from Merrick Garland, plain and simple. Plenty of confirmation time and election year precedent to confirm #NuclearOption

It's silly to call what happened in the Senate today "the nuclear option." The nuclear option was used when Republicans STOLE a SCOTUS seat. pic.twitter.com/pZNhz1karn

A President under FBI investigation for collusion w/ a hostile country filled a stolen SCOTUS seat.
The definition of illegitimate.

It is pathetic to hear this coming from a sitting U.S. Senator.
.@SenateMajLdr is filling this stolen seat with a proponent of the dark mega-money that is corrupting our elections. Unacceptable!

You know that the nominee is a good pick when liberals are calling him an extremist.
Go, Democrats, go!!!!

They were silent when Harry Reid’s party used the nuclear option. Now that things switched, they cannot stand it.
It is inevitable that Gorsuch will be confirmed. He has the votes no matter how much his opponents whine and complain.
Will you be supporting Neil Gorsuch? Comment below and let us know.
