7. As it is now...

... when the GOP objects to a nominee it takes '60 yes votes' to get cloture in order to bring the confirmation vote to the senate floor,
then when the full senate votes 51 votes are needed for the confirmation to pass.

The problem has been that the GOP has been objecting to the majority of the nominees.
