Ted Cruz just laid the hammer down on Democrats, who are desperate to block Republicans from filling the vacant SCOTUS seat before the election.

Cruz blocked a resolution to honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s “dying wish” that her successor not be named until a new president takes office.

Democrats are naturally furious that they aren’t getting away with cheating the system.

Chuck Schumer tried to claim that Republicans’ kind words after Ginsburg’s death would be “totally empty” if they didn’t honor her wishes.

Cruz responded effectively: “Under the Constitution, members of the judiciary do not appoint their own successors.”
