Democrats are still searching for how to fight off Neil Gorsuch. Cenk Uygur, the host of The Young Turks, gives them a winning playbook. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. Sign the petition below: nogorsuch.org

“In the Senate hearing on his nomination to the Supreme Court this week, Neil Gorsuch will most likely pledge to keep an open mind about cases that might come before him as a justice on the high court. That's good, because open minds on the court are exactly what our democracy needs.

Having an open mind includes recognizing mistakes rather than blindly following precedent. And one area where the court has made many mistakes is money in politics: Perhaps their biggest was the 2010 Citizens United ruling. In that case, a bare majority of five justices argued that, while it's clear that money given directly to a politician can corrupt, there's no risk of corruption when money is given to outside groups that supposedly operate independently from candidates' campaigns. The theory is that corruption is impossible because the candidate does not control the money and might even disagree with how it's spent.

But since 2010, there have been numerous examples of large donations to nominally independent groups that have apparently corrupted politicians, making a mockery of the court's reasoning.”
