Biden argued that if Judge Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed as a #SCOTUS justice and the court overturns former Obama’s signature health care law, 100 million people who have pre-existing conditions will lose their coverage
Trump disputed Biden's statement that 100 million people have pre-existing conditions before pivoting to attack Biden for his own health care plan which he said will “extinguish” the health care of 180 million people who currently have private coverage
According to the Department of Health and Human Services, 50-129 million Americans have a pre-existing condition.

Under Obamacare starting in 2014, insurance companies can't refuse to offer health coverage to these Americans as they previously could…

No se permitirán aplausos o interrupciones, dice el moderadar Chris Wallace (hijo del legendario Mike Wallace de 60 minutes, btw).

Los temas los ha elegido él. #Debates2020
Agenda de temas. (Los próximos debates presidenciales son el 15 y 22 de octubre).

• La trayectoria de Trump y Biden.
• La Corte Suprema.
• Covid-19.
• La economía.
• Tensiones raciales.
• La integridad de las elecciones.

Biden abre con #ACA. #Obamacare (un 8,5% de la población no tiene ningún tipo de cobertura médica). #Texas es el estado con el mayor número de personas sin acceso a ningún tipo de cuidado médico.

Y de ahí salta a la decisión de #SCOTUS, que afectaría a #ACA. #debates2020

#SCOTUS up first.

What does Trump mean Democrats didn't have the election with #MerrickGarland?

@BarackObama was in the White House!

#2020Debates #2020Debate #RBG #RuthBaderGinsburg
.@JoeBiden insists should wait on #SCOTUS confirmation & see the outcome of #2020election.

If #Obamacare / #ACA struck down, what happens? Women's rights fundamentally changed.

Not appropriate before election.

Every time McConnell's lips move, he lies. McConnell himself has voted SIXTY SEVEN TIMES to overturn the #ACA. His state is among those petitioning to end the #ACA as an unjust law. The law protects #PreExistingConditions. It comes before #SCOTUS mid-November. Barrett will vote.
Trump filed to have #ACA struck down on June 25, with specific attention to the #PreExistingConditions clause of the law. If Trump thought #AmyConeyBarrett would vote against him, he would never have nominated her. This is how a 6-3 #SCOTUS begins: ending healthcare for millions.

If Sen. Dem leaders center their #SCOTUS strategy around the hopes of 1 of their marquee Senators scoring some viral video clips during SJC hearings while helping 2 legitimize an #IllegitimateSCOTUSNominee - they are even bigger bunch of losers than we previously thought of.
Any Senate Democrat who has any modicum of pride or reverence for our democracy wouldn't consider meeting an #IllegitimateSCOTUSNominee appointed by tax-cheat, crook who has been openly pointing at this nomination to cement his hold on power. Show some sense of pride & life Dems.
Why would any Senate Democrat w/ any sense of self-respect and concern for our dying democracy even consider sitting down with an #IllegitimateSCOTUSNominee who is most likely heading to SCOTUS to rubber stamp Trump's dictatorial aspiration? In what world is that justifiable?

If Coney Barrett can't handle the political pressure of Trump not wanting people to wear #masks in the midst of a #pandemic - including her own children - how will she handle anything political at #SCOTUS?

#COVID19 #MaskUp #2020Election #Obamacare #ACA
Who puts Trump above the well-being of their own family members?

Oh, wait,…

#COVID19 #pandemic #MaskUp #SCOTUS #Obamacare #2020Election #DeborahBirx
I wonder if any senators will bring up the fact Coney Barrett declined to wear a mask & declined to have her own children wear #masks in crowded environment at the White House b/c of Trump?

That should reflect on her ability to handle political pressure

Hillary warned us:

—He’s not as rich as he says
—He’s not as charitable as he claims
—He owes $650M to Wall St &Foreign Banks
—He doesn’t want you to know he doesn’t pay income taxes
—He has multiple conflicts of interests


His own fixer/attorney Cohen testified that Trump:

🔹Inflated his assets to get loans
🔹Deflated his assets to avoid paying taxes
🔹Used public funds/taxpayer dollars for private businesses

Reminder: In 2018 the NYT uncovered that Trump and his family committed “instances of outright fraud” and had defrauded the US Govt out of $500 Million in taxes.

This alone should’ve been enough to remove a corrupt POTUS*.

Durbin: "Can't stop the outcome."

Whitehouse: No "triple secret procedural strategy."

Schumer: We'll retaliate next year.

Feinstein: Won't end the filibuster.

Pelosi: "None of us has any interest in shutting down govt."

There's your "resistance."
It pains me to admit that for a LONG time, I bought into the "Dems are inept and weak" narrative. It's much worse. They are complicit. Trump is a fundraising bonanza for them.
The fact is, Dems DO know how to play political hardball.

Against the left.

Trump has no healthcare plan other than to gut Obamacare in the middle of a pandemic. And to do that via installing new #SCOTUS judge who will end the ACA the week after Election Day. #TrumpHasNoPlan @MeidasTouch

P.s. which then kicks 15 mil off Medicaid
... I’m not kidding on the 15 million losing Medicaid part. Medicaid expansion funding is one core part of ACA. This of all the unemployed on Medicaid—gone.
3) And who would have thought, but people want to solve #COVID19 before confirming a Supreme Court judge. Gee. Image

Instead of wasting time on pointless confirmation hearings the senate should confirm Amy Coney Barrett and pass economic relief before the election in November. #OurCourts #OurFutureOurJustice #ProtectTheCourts #PeopleOverPolitics #LetThePeopleDecide

It was an honor to be at the @WhiteHouse when Pres. @realDonaldTrump announced his nominee for #SCOTUS—Amy Coney Barrett. From what I've read, she is more than qualified, has a brilliant legal mind, & will interpret the Constitution as it is written.…
Amy Coney Barrett is also a woman of faith. At a Notre Dame commencement she said, "...if you can keep in mind that your fundamental purpose in life is not to be a lawyer, but to know, love, & serve God, you truly will be a different kind of lawyer." God bless her.
We certainly need to pray for Amy Coney Barrett, her husband, & their entire family.

My thread on #JudgeAmyConeyBarrett: "the voices of the American people must be heard. By fighting for the progress made because of the work of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg & others, we can reject a nominee whose views are well outside of the mainstream.” 👇…
I know that many are feeling cynical and frustrated--or even dejected at the thought of #RBG's legacy being undone by her successor. Don't. The time is to organize and use our voice to fight for the future of #SCOTUS.
"Confirming a nominee with a rigid ideology and pre-commitments to overturn important precedents will harm Coloradans: removing health care protections, rolling back equality, overruling #Roe, and allowing felons to possess firearms." We must stop it.…

Judge Amy Coney Barrett is well-qualified to serve on #SCOTUS, and I look forward to supporting her nomination.
I also look forward to her confirmation hearing, where she’ll have the opportunity to demonstrate to the Judiciary Committee, the Senate & the American people that she’ll uphold the rule of law and interpret the Constitution according to its original meaning without fear or favor
We cannot take a single #SCOTUS seat for granted.

One vote preserves our right to speak freely, to bear arms, and to exercise our faith:

In selecting Judge Amy Coney Barrett, @realDonaldTrump has picked an exceptionally qualified constitutionalist to serve as our nation’s next Supreme Court justice. (1/3)
Judge Barrett’s stellar career and character shows she is someone who recognizes the proper role of a Supreme Court justice is to interpret the Constitution as written, not to legislate from the bench. (2/3)
Not long ago Democrats said that Americans deserve a fully-staffed #SCOTUS of nine.

@realDonaldTrump has done his constitutional duty.

Now Democrats should make good on their words by joining Senate Republicans and committing to holding a fair Senate confirmation process.

I am pleased that President Trump has nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court.
Given Judge Barrett’s intellect, strong legal credentials, and impeccable character, I was proud to support her confirmation to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in 2017. These same attributes will serve her well on the nation’s highest court.
As a working mother with young children, Judge Barrett would also bring to the Supreme Court a background that will add to its diversity.

They murder Scalia. We replace w protege. 💥

John Podesta to DC lobbyist Steve Elmendorf. Podesta writes, "Didn't think wet works meant pool parties at the Vineyard."
Elmendrof responds, "I am all in Sounds like it will be a bad nite , we all need to BUCKLE UP and double down" Image
'Wet work" is slang for assassination. Image
The theory goes that Podesta's use of wet work implies an assassination. The references to pool and Vineyard refer to the Cibolo Creek Ranch where Scalia's body was found.
The email was also written just four days before Scalia was found dead on 2/13/16… Image

Trump formally announced Amy Coney Barrett — a devout Catholic and mom to seven kids who's served on the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals since 2017 — as his third #SCOTUS nominee in just under four years
Barrett’s nomination has thrilled social conservatives and members of the Trump base, who admire her anti-abortion comments and strict views on the Constitution.

Those same views have alarmed Dems, who fear she'll imperil abortion rights and voting rights
Inside the White House, Barrett had the support of both chief of staff Mark Meadows and top attorney Pat Cipollone, two key aides involved in the selection process.

On Capitol Hill, she had the backing of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell…

If we had just 5 more Elizabeth Warren in the Senate Caucus with half her tenacity and 🔥 we’d have unstoppable momentum for Dems to mount all out fight to #blockbarrett
Thankfully @EdMarkey is one of those @SenateDems who can match @SenWarren’s 🔥 - it’d be nice if others stepped like this to indicate they will match their words w action to #blockbarrett
Would be nice if members of @SenateDems caucus & MoC's followed the lead of @SenWarren - call out Trump's #SCOTUSnominee for what she is - an "illegitimate Supreme Court nominee"

Sen. Dems simply cannot treat this farce of a process as business as usual.
