      The Hill:

      Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer(N.Y.), under pressure from groups on the left, will not agree to a customary year-end package of judicial nominees, according to a Senate Democratic aide.

      Schumer and his Democratic colleagues are in no mood to agree to a year-end deal after a federal judge in Texas struck down the entire Affordable Care Act last week, including protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

      The judge, Reed O’Conner, was a George W. Bush appointee confirmed by the Senate in a unanimous vote in 2007 — when Democrats held the majority.
