    Just executive branch nominations?

    It will give the GOP all the more reason to filibuster judicial nominations.

    The highest form of spiritual practice is self observation with compassion.

      either they end or severely restrict the filibusters for everything, including bills and judicial nominations, or we're just looking at total obstruction in those areas, as opposed to almost total obstruction.
      There's a crisis in the judiciary, even John Roberts has said that the obstruction and delays need to stop.  You think the Repubs are gonna stop blocking nominees to the DC Circuit, which usually has the final word on new regulations, after they've been rolled on the NLRB and CFPB?  Of course not.
      It's all or nothing as far as I'm concerned.
