Schumer Says Democrats Are ‘united in opposition’ Over Judge Amy Coney Barrett

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) sounded the alarm that Democrats are “united in opposition” over President Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court following the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Schumer made the comment following President Trump’s announcement on Saturday.

Breitbart reports:

Schumer said, “My colleagues are united in opposition. Many of them have issued statements in opposition, and we are united. Democrats House, Senate, and Joe Biden in alerting the American people to the danger, danger to their health care, their very health care they depend on, with this nomination.”

Schumer also said voting for Judge Barrett would “strip away health care from over 100 million Americans.”

Democrat presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden criticized President Trump over his Supreme Court pick.

Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) plans to oppose Judge Barrett’s confirmation.

Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) said the expectations to approve Judge Barrett in a short period of time “is nothing short of outrageous.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also weighed in by criticizing President Trump.

While Democrats are for expanding the size of the Supreme Court should they win control over the Senate, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) said “I can’t support that.”

Democrats’ hostility towards Judge Amy Coney Barrett is because she was nominated by President Trump, is a strong believer of the U.S. Constitution and a woman of faith.

Judge Barrett is extremely qualified to serve on the Supreme Court.
