Judge Amy Coney Barrett “could turn back the clock on women’s rights and a woman’s right to choose, workers’ rights, voting rights, civil rights, LGBTQ rights, environmental protections, and more.”
Pool/Getty ImagesSenate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer harshly criticized President Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, saying Judge Amy Coney Barrett “could tear down everything” late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg “built” during her tenure. Ina statement Saturday
, Schumer focused on the consequences of Barrett’s confirmation on health care.Any senator who votes to confirm Trump’s nominee would be voting “to strike down the Affordable Care Act and eliminate protections for millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions,” Schumer said. With his nomination, Trump “has once again put Americans’ healthcare in the crosshairs.,” he added. Schumer also warned that Barrett’s confirmation would cement the court’s “far-right majority” and “could also turn back the clock on women’s rights and a woman’s right to choose, workers’ rights, voting rights, civil rights, LGBTQ rights, environmental protections and more.”
The American people should make no mistake:A vote by any Senator for Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a vote to eliminate health care for millions in the middle the COVID-19 pandemic.Democrats are fighting for Americans' health care.— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer)
September 26, 2020Highlighting the unprecedented nature of the vacancy, Schumer said that Trump and Republican senators are “shamelessly rushing to fill Justice Ginsburg’s seat less than 40 days before a presidential election.” And in the process they’re not only ignoring “Ginsburg’s dying wish … that she not be replaced until a new president is installed” but also seeking to “replace her with someone who could tear down everything that she built.” Schumer added: “This reprehensible power grab is a cynical attack on the legitimacy of the Court.”
I will oppose the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett, as I would any nominee proposed as part of this illegitimate sham process, barely one month before an election as Americans are already casting their votes. Americans deserve a voice in this hugely consequential decision.

Yep. All because rbg didn’t resign during Obama’s admin. Well, and our system is deeply flawed with lifetime appointments and no term limits in the legislative branch. She is a wolf in sheep's clothing... And healthcare! That's an important one. contactlight69 Wouldn’t it be doubly tragic if it’s a woman who reversed all the rights women have fought for in the last century.
Mighty Archimedes That is the point of her nomination! Thinking there’s a clock was your first mistake. Offred

What to Know About Amy Coney Barrett, Trump's Potential Supreme Court NomineePresident Trump has said he will nominate a woman as the next Supreme Court justice following Ruth Bader Ginsburg's passing. Who cares. We don’t want her. NoAmyCoathangerBarrett
On guns, abortion, high court could become more conservativeIf Congress confirms President Trump’s nominee to succeed Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Supreme Court would become more conservative and also perhaps more ready to tackle certain hot-button issues like abortion and guns. This isn’t news; it’s opinion! '...and also perhaps more ready to tackle...' Gotta love the milquetoast liberal equivocation larded with modifiers and gussied up as objectivity. why they chose her: to rile everyone up & make this a fight about religion. It’s not that. It may seem reasonable to question what appears ‘cult-like’ ; but it feeds into GOP story, helps them. DON’T fuel story that it’s about religion. It’s not. It’s about:ACA &democracy
