100 Days of Trump: Can Mike Pence save the Founders’ vision of the legislative process?

Trump’s tax plan may create an impasse only Vice President Mike Pence can solve. Plus, Democrats’ loathing for Trump masks their own insecurities about his 100-days success, and, Democrats see Trump as a pariah but the voters see the bright side of not having Hillary.

Any reason for nerves in Gorsuch vote today?

The good news is it looks like Republicans are finally ready to show some backbone and call the Democrats’ bluff on the filibuster. If going “nuclear” means honoring truth, respectability and the Founding Fathers’ original conception of how the system should function we should have done it long ago.

Gorsuch filibuster will be the dumbest in US history

Rich Lowry, New York Post

The filibuster Chuck Schumer is about to undertake against Judge Neil Gorsuch’s Supreme Court nomination is perhaps the institution’s dumbest. It won’t block Gorsuch, won’t establish any important jurisprudential principle and won’t advance Democratic strategic goals, indeed the opposite. A Gorsuch filibuster would be an act of a sheer partisan pique against the wrong target, with the wrong method, at the wrong time.
