Please see below for our topline message following President Trump's nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Justice Ginsburg’s successor will have a profound impact on every part of our lives and our future. For voters, this isn’t about who is sitting on the Court, it’s about the issues that hang in the balance: health care, clean air and water, whether you make equal pay for equal work and the rights of voters, immigrants, women, and workers.
Today, Trump announced Amy Coney Barrett, who has a written track record of disagreeing with the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision upholding the Affordable Care Act. She critiqued Chief Justice John Roberts’ majority opinion upholding the law in 2012.
President Trump is right now fighting in the Supreme Court to strip health coverage away from millions of people in the middle of a global health crisis. The Supreme Court has twice already upheld the Affordable Care Act as constitutional.
If Trump succeeds and his appointment votes to scrap the entire Affordable Care Act - insurers could once again discriminate or drop coverage completely for more than 100 million people living with preexisting conditions. Including the 7 million Americans who may have lung scarring and heart damage from COVID-19.
The majority of the American people believe the winner of the election should nominate Justice Ginsburg's successor.
Millions of voters are already casting their ballots. They should have their voices heard on who serves on the Court.
