Senate Republicans voted to end the filibuster of Supreme Court nominations Thursday, setting the stage for the rapid elevation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the high court and removing a pillar of the minority party’s power to exert influence in the chamber. Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation by the Senate, expected Friday, would return the Supreme Court to full strength for the first time in 14 months. He could be a key vote on coming cases, including the high court’s possible consideration of Mr. Trump’s latest executive order on immigration and visas. The confirmation would give the president a much-needed win, but the battle’s aftermath appears less positive for the Senate. Senators from both parties said there could be permanent damage to a chamber whose traditional reliance on collegiality and compromise has been a contrast to an otherwise polarized Washington.
Bigger Isn’t Always Better
The U.S. has long held itself out as a nation driven by entrepreneurs and small businesses. Today, the country has become something different: a nation of employees working for large companies, often very large ones. In a generational reversal that is rippling through the economy, Americans are now more likely to work for a large employer than a small one. Also, huge companies dominate U.S. economic life well beyond employment. They ring up a disproportionate share of sales for goods and services, both to consumers and to other businesses. Scale alone isn’t bad. The problem now is that business formation has slowed, meaning that there are fewer nimble new companies that could challenge the sprawling incumbents. We examine the phenomenon through 20 charts, and we take a look at the new ranks of $100,000-a-year jobs.

Responding to yesterday’s question on Pepsi pulling an ad,Dolores Yvars of New York wrote: “The Coke ad of the 70s was truly advertising at its best…this latest TV spot for Pepsi was just political pandering and not well received by the majority, rightfully so.” Mike Schiller of Arizona said: “Someone watched ‘Mad Men’ too many times.” Adam Schutzman of New York shared: “While Pepsi may have had the best of intentions, the commercial came off tone deaf to a complex and sensitive issue. A can of Pepsi does not cure police brutality and does not answer the call of the Black Lives Matter movement.” Victor Zirilli of Tennessee commented: “I liked the Pepsi ad. Reminded me of the days when Americans could disagree and still be civil. Sigh.” And Larry Stephens of Florida weighed in: “No deed goes unpunished by social media, good or bad.”
