An open letter to the U.S. Senate

Brief subject

9 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

In 2016, many months before the election, Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell famously said "the American people are perfectly capable of having their say on this issue." The issue at hand was a Supreme Court justice seat. He dug in and refused to vote on the nomination of the sitting president because he felt at the time that the people should be heard and have a say on who should be on the court and how the balance of power should shift. Unsurprisingly, now that this issue has come up again, with 45 days until the next presidential election, he says it is his moral imperative to push the sitting presidents nominee through. I'm sorry, senator, you can not have it both ways. When enforcing this arbitrary rule, you fell on the sword of morality and perceived belief in the American people. You must rightfully enforce this rule with consistency, with the precedent being set, and let the people decide, no matter who gets elected on November 3. Justice Ginsburg's legacy is one of equality and we should honor her by enforcing this rule equally despite there now being a republican president. The divisiveness in the country has gotten too great and this is a time we need our leaders to demonstrate that they still know how to come together to heal our nation and bridge that divide. I implore you to vow not to vote on a nominee before January 2021, no matter who gets elected this November. This decision will be remembered by all of your constituents! Please stand on the side of justice and honor justice Ginsburg's dying wishes. She fought for everyday Americans her entire career. Please fight for her now.
