Subject: Here’s where things stand on Judge Gorsuch:
Date: Monday, March 20, 2017 11:58 AM
I wanted to give you an update on where things stand with Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court.
Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee began hearings that will let us better understand his record and his judicial philosophy.
But I want to be clear: To this point, we’ve seen plenty of evidence that should make us skeptical about Judge Gorsuch’s willingness to side with average Americans over the powerful.
Indeed, in many of his most prominent decisions, Gorsuch has shown that he’s inclined to favor CEOs over citizens, executives over employers, and corporations over consumers.
So, in these hearings, Senate Democrats are going to work to get answers. And then, we’re going to require Mitch McConnell to find at least 60 votes to see Gorsuch confirmed.
President Trump’s allies are actively targeting Democrats in the Senate because they think they can limit the effectiveness of our opposition.
One group of conservative activists started planning the campaign to see Gorsuch confirmed well before his nomination became public. The day after Trump named his pick, they announced their intention to spend at least $10 million on an advertising campaign largely focused on Democratic senators in five states that had voted for Trump in the 2016 election.
This fight won’t be easy, and we need to make sure our lawmakers know we have their backs. Chip in $1 right now.
Now The Washington Post is reporting that conservative groups are outspending progressives twenty to one in the battle for the Supreme Court.
The hearings that begin today are an opportunity to learn the truth about Gorsuch, but as of today, we’re in danger of getting completely drowned out by these conservative ideologues.
And by the way, Republicans are hoping for Gorsuch to get a vote as soon as April 7. So we don’t have much time.
Those are all the reasons why I’m asking for your help. Will you make sure Democrats have the resources we need?
My response: (Thanks Pacco Fransisco for the image. Chuckles has it now)
