The words “nuclear option” have been dominating the news as a result of Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination for Supreme Court justice.

In today’s report from On The Road, host Laurence Colletti and guests Karen Popp and Russell Wheeler hash out rules of Senate voting and discuss the decrease in judges qualified to be nominated for the Supreme Court. They also talk about the potential long term effects of using the nuclear option within the senate, both positive and negative.
