Some Senate Democrats have floated the idea of blocking Gorsuch's confirmation, after Republican members of the Senate refused to give former President Barack ObamaBarack ObamaGinsburg: Trump Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch is "very easy to get along with" Ivanka, Kushner pushed to strike climate deal criticism from executive order: report Pence: Democrats" Obamacare promises were "fake news' MORE's Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland a hearing previous year.
