JUDGE BRETT KAVANAUGH’S NOMINATION IS A THREAT
TO MILLIONS OF AMERICANS
Lifetime Appointment Will Turn US Supreme Court To The Extreme Right For a Generation
Raleigh, NC – President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to fill the US Supreme Court seat of retiring Justice Anthony M. Kennedy is a continuation of his plan to get the Court to do what Congress could not - repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) - and to take so many other actions outside the mainstream of the nation’s values.
Kavanaugh has previously sided against the ACA, evidence that his confirmation would threaten protections for millions of people who have received health insurance coverage through the ACA, including millions with pre-existing conditions.
This nominee is active in the Federalist Society, a group that has spent decades promoting its goal to appoint judges that hold extreme views on issues ranging from the right to privacy to civil rights.
The progress we have made as a nation to be an inclusive and welcoming society is at risk. The US Senate, after fully examining Kavanaugh’s real record, must reject his nomination and instead work for a consensus pick who will defend Americans’ rights.
