Letter: GOP has amnesia on court nominees

GOP has amnesia on court nominees

The Republican Senate leaders were taking turns in front of cameras, all complaining that their Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, was being denied a seat on the court by the Democratic opponents’ filibuster. This, they all complained, was unfair and unprecedented because the president was elected and his nominee should get a positive vote. In most cases they do. In a sane world, I would have to agree. But these very same senators refused to even give Merrick Garland, who was also an elected president’s choice, a hearing and a chance for a vote. It was hard to swallow. Apparently these Republicans are all very good at swallowing alternative facts and bad wine.
