Week In Review March 31, 2017
When the GOP wanted to repeal the Affordable Health Care Act and deny funding for Planned Parenthood, maternity care, prenatal care and newborn care, voters used their political muscle. We called and showed up at town hall meetings. Congress heard our voices and the repeal was tabled. Phone calls and pressure worked. We must remember that for the next big fight - the Supreme Court nomination of Neil Gorsuch.
The Judiciary Committee will vote on Gorsuch on Monday to send the nomination to the Senate, with a full vote scheduled for next Friday.
A Trump advisor said, "If Trump is going to be a transformational president, not a transitional president, he needs a supportive court." Gorsuch was exclusively chosen for his conservative views to ensure that Trump's right-wing agenda will be enforced by the Supreme Court.
Gorsuch has a well documented record of voting against the rights of women, workers, and children with disabilities. Our country has a lot to lose by nominating Neil Gorsuch. (Click for video on the Case Against Gorsuch) This is not about the next four years, but the next 40 years.
We can't afford to sit this battle out. On Monday, start calling your Senators. Tell them to vote no. Then ask your friends to make calls; and then make 5 more phone calls. Don't stop.
Donate to JAC and stand with us as we fight the Gorsuch nomination.
