This week the Senate voted to go “nuclear”, allowing the confirmation of Supreme Court nominees by a simple-majority vote. So, for our “From the Archives” this week, we wanted to look back at a 2013 show when the tables were turned and it was Democrats who voted to end the filibuster for executive branch and lower court nominees. We feature a clip from Sen. Bernie Sanders on the podcast but you can hear the entire show here.
