Watch live as Neil Gorsuch takes the stand ahead of what will undoubtedly be a fun day full of protests and political grandstanding.  Updates posted below:

On the role of Judges:

But to endure, our system of self-government requires judges to apply the text of our laws as the people’s representatives enacted them. So our judges, by design, play a critical–but limited—role.  They decide cases or controversies.  But in resolving those cases, they may look only to the laws the People wrote. 

Judges aren’t free to re-write statutes to get results they believe are more just.  Judges aren’t free to reorder regulations to make them more fair.  And no, Judges aren’t free to “update” the Constitution.  That’s not their job.
