More on Senate Democrats Going Nuclear
From David’s keyboard to God’s ears. But meantime, two other quick thoughts:
1. Courts cannot function unless Congress funds them — meaning both houses of Congress approving spending on them.
2. The Constitution vests in Congress decisions about what federal circuit and district courts we need. It does not say that once courts and the judgeships on those courts are established, they must be maintained forever.
If senate rules are now to be changed on the dime by the majority, all kinds of seemingly impossible things become possible.
