A Great Compromise regarding filling Supreme Court vacancies

Most importantly, such a step could dismiss this notion that the opposing party in the Senate can unduly hold up a nomination until after the upcoming election, in hope that their will be a transfer of power. Scalia died under Obama’s watch, with plenty of time for the Senate to honor its constitutional obligation to offer its “advise and consent” towards the Presidents selection, and it is abhorrent that Senate Republicans held up this vote, and “won” – depriving Obama of his chance at replacing Scalia with his selection. By making this deal, Trump could honor the tradition that a sitting President has the constitutionally authorized authority and responsibility to fill that position. As of now, it is unclear how many months prior to a Presidential election can a Senate decide to hold off considering a nominee? Scalia died a full nine months prior to the end of Obama’s term. What happens when the next Supreme Court Justice resigns or dies say, a full year – or eighteen months, prior to the end of the sitting President’s term?

The Election Shocker

Its hard to feel optimistic about the next four years. Ought our priorities be focused on building a wall, deporting folks who live and work in our country, and offering massive tax cuts that our country can ill afford to grant? Is now the time to throw away Obamacare - in spite of its need to be improved - and what about those people who are now insured? What about Obamacare's biggest contribution - eliminating insurers' ability to use "precondition" as an excuse to deny coverage.

About the Author

Mike G's photoMike Glasser

Mike has a long term relationship with Rogers Park, having lived here at various times in his life, most recently returning to the neighborhood in August, 2009. While living here as a third year law student, he remembers drunken nights at Biddy Mulligan’s and hosting a couple of memorable parties that he, hypocritically, now forbids his own tenants from having. Years later, after completing his stint as a lawyer, Mike started investing in apartment buildings in Rogers Park (and elsewhere), and soon after, did what many newly divorced real estate investors do: he moved into one of his buildings. In 1992 Mike was one of the founding members of the Rogers Park Builders Group, an organization that he eventually headed for six years, until yielding those reigns three years ago. Around a decade ago, on a whim, he reserved the web site “Rogerspark.com,” which he has been developing ever since, and which co-hosts RP BizArts networking events. Mike is the proud father of three wonderful children, Amy, Mitch and Ella.
