Democrats refocus fight against Trump’s Supreme Court…

12 July 2018

"It was our job in Congress to make the law, and judges shouldn't be doing what we're doing because they can't be voted out of office if you don't like what they're doing". Rather than just playing it safe with a broad swath of voters anxious about access to health care and abortion, Democrats now see an opportunity to excite their base by fanning fears that the highest court in the land could turn into a bulwark to protect the man appointing its members.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to tell Democrats that if they want to have a Supreme Court pick, they should "WIN ELECTIONS!" Chris Coons said at a press conference Tuesday along with other Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Republicans are pushing back, accusing Democrats of distorting the judge's words. "[Republicans'] new strategy is to use the court system to invalidate the protections in the law for people with pre-existing conditions", Murphy said.

Kennedy was instrumental and in the middle of a lot of historic and important cases, including many for Texas. The AGs from these states charge that because the tax bill passed by Congress past year eliminated the tax penalty for not having health insurance, it rendered the entire federal health law void.

France has won all the three of the previous meetings at major tournaments, including two World Cup encounters against Belgium . France came back from a 1-2 deficit against Argentina, while Belgium turned an 0-2 defeat into a 3-2 win over Japan.

The abortion issue is of particular importance this year, when women have emerged as the driving force in the Democratic Party.

The longer any final decision takes, the strategy goes, the more time groups including Demand Justice, NARAL, MoveOn.org, Center for American Progress, and Planned Parenthood have to fire up their base and persuade their vulnerable incumbents to oppose the nomination.

And unlike abortion, defending the health law is something all Senate Democrats can rally around. And though Sen. Collins indicated this week that she finds the judge well-qualified, an aide to the moderate senator said she was not stating a position either way on the nominee. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., could be a swing voter. None are strong supporters of abortion rights. Neither faces re-election this year, and both are centrists who've backed abortion rights and helped block their party's 2017 effort to repeal former President Barack Obama's health care statute.
