La mort du Sénat?


Pour l'auteur du texte, le recours à l'option nucléaire plus tôt aujourd'hui démontre bien que les institutions politiques de Washington sont malades. La tenue du vote au Sénat ne découlera plus d'un minimum de compromis, mais bien du seul jeu partisan. Si les Républicains en profitent pour l'instant, éventuellement ce sera le tour des démocrates.

 "This should not surprise anyone, of course, and it’s sadly not a novel argument anymore. Consider that for years, the entire Republican House pledged to repeal Obamacare as soon as they had the power to do so. Foolish voters undoubtedly assumed that years of planning to derail President Barack Obama’s signature achievement would have led to, well, a plan. We all saw the embarrassing goose egg that resulted. Now, an even more humiliating, and consequential, disaster lies in store for the once august body known as the United States Senate. And it is a tragedy. For no other reason other than that Congress is completely broken and seemingly incapable of governance, Senate leaders Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer are now forced to play a catastrophic game of chicken over the Gorsuch nomination that I suspect neither wants to win."
