Donald Trump just nominated Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court.
Based on Donald Trump’s stated criteria for filling this seat, we already know three things for certain about Brett Kavanaugh:
It’s no wonder that Trump nominated Kavanaugh. He’s written that a sitting President should never be able to be indicted, and can fire whoever is investigating him whenever he wants.
Brett Kavanaugh is a major threat to the ACA. In 2011, he didn’t rule in favor of the law and he later gave a speech criticizing Justice Roberts’ rationale for upholding it.
Trump explicitly told us that he would only nominate judges who are anti-abortion and would overturn Roe v. Wade. Kavanaugh gave a speech just last year praising the dissent in Roe v. Wade.
If confirmed, Brett Kavanaugh will serve on the Court for life, shaping the future of our country long after Trump is out of office.
We need to demand that the Senate defeat the Brett Kavanaugh nomination.
We already know that Trump said he’ll only pick judges who’d overturn Roe v. Wade and outlaw abortion. Trump also made it clear his nominee would vote to overturn the Affordable Care Act, letting insurance companies charge more or refuse coverage for the 130 million people in America with pre-existing conditions.
