I am again voicing my objection to the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Her record demonstrates that she exhibits bias towards well established precedent, and the nomination process reflects an unacceptable hypocrisy by the Senate leadership.
Her personal animus towards the right to choose is abominable, and she has roundly criticized decisions upholding the Affordable Care Act. She has also shown great disdain for the LGBTQ community.
There is a case pending before the Court right now, scheduled to be heard on November 10, which could invalidate the entire ACA. The addition of Barrett to the Court could IMMEDIATELY abolish the ACA, taking away healthcare from millions of Americans.
Moreover, she is very young. She is likely to be on the Court for decades. And with a 6-3 majority, the Court would have the ability to roll back hard-fought gains, with frightening decisions, for generations.
As your constituent, I expect you to vote NO on Barrett.
