Kinda crazy that Mitch McConnell can literally say, out loud, “I will not compromise” and all anyone asks is “Why can’t Biden find compromise with the GOP?”— Ben Wexler (@mrbenwexler) June 13, 2021
On Hugh Hewitt's show, McConnell says it's "highly unlikely" he'd allow Biden to fill a Supreme Court vacancy in 2024 if he's majority leader. He also doesn't commit to allowing a vote on a nominee if a seat opened up in *2023*.— Sahil Kapur (@sahilkapur) June 14, 2021
"Well, we'd have to wait and see what happens."
As long as Mitch McConnell is in the US Senate, there is no such thing as bipartisanship.— BrooklynDad_Defiant! (@mmpadellan) June 14, 2021
Kill the filibuster.
Expand the Supreme Court.
Mitch McConnell blocked Merrick Garland 8 months before election but confirmed Amy Coney Barrett 8 days before election when 65 million had already voted— Ari Berman (@AriBerman) June 14, 2021
And now he's saying he'd do it again
The way to understand Mitch McConnell’s actions on blocking Garland in ‘16, to reversing that standard for Barrett in ‘20, to suggesting he’d block Biden in ‘23/‘24:— Sahil Kapur (@sahilkapur) June 14, 2021
He is betting that Democrats won’t do anything to retaliate when they have power. So far that bet is paying off.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says now on Hugh Hewitt’s show that it’s “highly unlikely” he would allow Biden to fill a Supreme Court vacancy in 2024 if he’s majority leader — or even 2023.— Hugo Lowell (@hugolowell) June 14, 2021
Mitch McConnell says he will block any Biden SCOTUS nominees if he becomes Majority Leader again.— Nick Knudsen 🇺🇸 (@NickKnudsenUS) June 14, 2021
Well, I say we #BlockMitch.
If we hold the line with these 4 Senate seats in 2022, we will maintain our majority. This is great investment: https://t.co/aFTa62o4eu
Why is it that Mitch McConnell can come out and declare he wouldn’t fill an open SCOTUS seat if nominated by Biden, but Democrats are still supposed to pledge fealty to “bipartisanship?”— Bryan Behar (@bryanbehar) June 14, 2021
Sorry to repeat myself, but I am truly baffled by the seemingly widespread belief that a Republican-controlled Senate will ever again confirm a Democratic president's Supreme Court nominee. It's just not going to happen. Not in your lifetime, not in mine, not in anyone's. https://t.co/3HxisAM3ai— Mark Joseph Stern (@mjs_DC) June 14, 2021
