Biden argued Trump’s nomination of Barrett to the Supreme Court less than 40 days before the election is primarily about getting rid of Obamacare.

Biden decried Trump nominating Barrett 'before Justice Ginsburg could be laid to rest' and after hundreds of thousands of Americans already voted.

,"Obamacare will be replaced with a MUCH better, and FAR cheaper, alternative if it is terminated in the Supreme Court. Would be a big WIN for the USA!" Despite his promise of a health care alternative to the ACA, Trump has not released any specifics of his plan.

During an ABC News townhall,Trump told ABC host George Stephanopoulous that"You're going to have new healthcare, and the preexisting condition aspect of it will always be in my plan," but, again, failed to mention any specifics.Biden's remarks Sunday echoed what he said in a Philadelphia campaign appearance earlier this month, when he warned,"Donald Trump is at the Supreme Court trying to strip health coverage away from tens of millions of families and to strip away the peace of mind from more than 100 million people with preexisting conditions."

On Saturday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., sent a letter to Senate Democrats about Barrett's nomination, telling them the best way to fight back is to focus on health care."Our number one job is to communicate exactly what is at stake for the American people if Republicans jam through this nominee," Schumer wrote in his email."The elimination of the Affordable Care Act is at the top of the list. The most immediate and consequential issue at stake in this Supreme Court vacancy is the future of the Affordable Care Act, which hangs in the balance."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., echoed similar sentiments on CNN's"State of the Union" Sunday morning."What I am concerned about is anyone that President Trump would have appointed was there to undo the Affordable Care Act. That is why he was in such a hurry, so he could have been in place for the oral arguments which begin Nov. 10," Pelosi told host Jake Tapper.

If confirmed, Barrett would give conservatives on the court a 6-3 advantage and have a lasting effect on issues such as abortion and gun rights, in addition to health care.Her nomination itself has also been highly controversial because in 2016 Senate Republicans blocked then-President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland on the grounds that it came too close to the election. Democrats have accused Republicans of hypocrisy for objecting to that nomination, which occurred nearly eight months before the 2016 election, but approving of Barrett's nomination, which occurred little more than five weeks before the 2020 election.

Argentine justice officials on Sunday seized medical files from the doctor of Diego Maradona as part of their investigation into the recent death of the soccer star.

Doesn’t matter what it’s about it’s legal, and if he and Obama had the SAME situation they would have done it REMEMBER: DNC Said -GOP wanted to push GRANDMA off the CLIFF by not supporting ObamaCare:LIE LET's look at DNC NYGovCuomo did 'PUSH GRANDMA off THE CLIFF' sent SICK COVID PATIENTS into HER HOME: TRUTH. You can keep your Dr: LIE. YOUR Premiums/deductables will go DOWN: LIE!

Debates tomorrow!!!... PURE COMEDY Not good for Healt Insurance stocks with 20 million losing insurance. And Biden is wrong, again. QUESTION! if OBAMACARE WAS SO GOOD why did the GOVERNMENT employees,Congress&Senate REFUSE to accept it for THEMSELVES? His Promise: like your doctor you keep your doctor-LIE.

Objective: single payer never a good plan

He’s looking for back up to steal the election. And keeping himself and his family out of prison for tax fraud, evasion, and other crimes. He should cry some more. 🙄 “Biden read what the DNC put on the teleprompter”. You’re welcome, fixed it for you. Uh yeah. It's about everything that will go to SCOTUS.

Most of America wants to be rid of it. Obamacrap nobody gives a shit about OOOOOObamacare He was wrong on that one. As he always is. Maybe I don't have the facts straight, but can the Supreme Court run a trial with only 8 judges? If so isn't it still likely that the outcome of the ACA trial would still favor a conservative outcome without AmyConeyBarrettSCOTUS ? So why would this be the reason?

UT, Sen Harris wants to get rid of it also. Lets face facts THE ACA IS A HORRIBLE FAILURE. So you mean I wont be paying quadruple premiums no more No. OBAMACARE IS A FRAUD TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!! God we can only hope- that is the worst Plan ever. I never paid for more healthcare to literally get less benefits., worse providers 🥴

Let's hope so Bud Trump the most corrupt, incompetent and liar in US history. Absolutely this! Roe v Wade isn't on the SCOTUS docket, yet. But, the ACA, 'Obamacare', is directly in their crosshairs! Red meat for the base. “Sadly, since ObamaCare's inception one decade ago, the vast majority of Americans are not better off in terms of their health insurance costs and health care access. ObamaCare has failed miserably because it lacks free-market principles and is a one-size-fits all”

I mean, if the prompter says so then that’s what he’s going to attempt to read. Obamacare sucks they should get rid off it because no one can afford it! Obviously. RE new judge This is an illegal move, because it was disallowed by the Republican Party last election, & is designed to cause MAXIMUM GRIEF & CHAOS TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!! I challenge lawyers to FIX THIS CONSTITUTIONAL DISGRACE!!!

It’s to overturn Roe v Wade, and possible election issues, and the ACA. Yep that’s why we voted Trump in. To represent OUR beliefs and rights. Awesome Mr. Biden is right, unfortunately. He paid more in hush money than he did in taxes. BrokeAssTrump TrumpIsNotABillionaire I pay more to the IRS than TrumpTaxes Do you know who pays his taxes? JoeBiden (released 21 yrs) I hope they 'Al Capone' him! He's not running for re-election, he's running from prison!

Joe Biden Warns Americans' Health Care On The Line With Barrett ConfirmationThe Democratic presidential nominee has urged the Senate not to act on Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation until at least after Election Day.

Trump Plans To Nominate Amy Coney Barrett To Supreme Court: ReportsThe 48-year-old U.S. appeals court judge is a favorite of social conservatives to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. P.S. to Amy Coney Barrett I figured that out after the 30th Tweet about it. Let's hope she can stay awake, unlike her predecessor.

'An easy selection': Trump settled quickly on BarrettEven as Trump world tried to draw out the process and float other names, the Supreme Court decision was mostly made. Senators will be shooting themselves in the foot if they confirm that vapid twt. Gonna flip the Senate after all You mean like Biden's VP pick? Oh please. This has nothing to do with optics. It's all about stacking the court quickly so he can undermine the election. It's all about what's good for him. It what's ultimately bad for the nation. 😡
