She really needs to get out of politics.
Sen. Kamala Harris has recently called out the Senate for confirming Amy Coney Barrett stating that it was “illegitimate,” and added that “Americans ‘will not forget’ the Republicans’ constitutional responsibility to fill the seat of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.”
Today Republicans denied the will of the American people by confirming a Supreme Court justice through an illegitimate process—all in their effort to gut the Affordable Care Act and strip health care from millions with pre-existing conditions. We won’t forget this.
Besides Harris, many others from the left decided to talk about Barrett’s confirmation. Director of Democracy Policy at Indivisible, Meagan Hatcher-Mays stated:
Today, Mitch McConnell and his Republican cronies confirmed Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, tarnishing the legacy of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and undermining whatever remaining faith the public still had in the court as an institution. Despite Republicans’ attempts to obfuscate Barrett’s extreme record, let’s be clear: the Supreme Court is now under the control of six far-right ideologues who were chosen and confirmed not to administer justice but to administer wins to the Republican party.
The liberals are mad that a person who deserves to become a Supreme Court justice was confirmed. It’s wild!
