    There are 105 federal judicial vacancies - either open or pending - right now. That's 12% of all federal judgeships open, with many more to come over the next 4 years.

    Plus the various cabinet positions that are open, plus EPA, ATF, and hundreds of other Executive appointments Republican senators have been holding hostage.

    Having the Executive and Judicial branches working and effective is at stake here.

    Filibuster reform now. No more Gentleman's agreements.
