Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York today said he will lead a filibuster against Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch. On the fourth and final day of the Senate hearing on the nominee, Democrats are persuaded they can't support Gorsuch's nomination.

Gorsuch has repeatedly ruled against students with disabilities who seek public education, consistently sided with big business at the expense of working people, and embraced extreme views that could endanger workers' rights on issues like employment discrimination, worker safety, and wages.
