The Democratic candidate for the White House, Joe Biden, asked the Senate not to confirm the conservative judge Amy coney barrett, elected by President Donald Trump to the Supreme Court, before the result of the presidential elections in November is known.
“The Senate should not act on this vacancy until after the American people select their next president and the next Congress,” Biden said in a statement.
Biden warned: “President Trump has been trying to scrap the Affordable Care Act for four years. Republicans have been trying to end it for a decade. On two occasions, the United States Supreme Court upheld the law as constitutional. “
But even now, in the midst of a global health pandemic, the Trump Administration is calling on the US Supreme Court to repeal the entire law, including its protections for people with pre-existing conditions. If President Trump has his way, complications from COVID-19, such as lung scarring and heart damage, could become the next deniable pre-existing condition. ” Biden said.
Additionally, on Twitter, Biden warned that the nomination of a conservative judge to replace the vacancy left on the Supreme Court following Ginsburg’s passing may lead to the demise of Obamacare : “Today, President Trump appointed Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, a jurist with a written record of disagreeing with the Court’s decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act. Vote as if your health care is on the ballot, because it is. “
Today, President Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court – a jurist with a written track record of disagreeing with the Court’s decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act.
