Republicans Rush Lifetime Appointment Nine Days Before Election While Admitting They’re “Not Going to Control Pandemic”

October 25, 2020 Press Releases

DSCC spokesperson Helen Kalla issued the following statement on Senate Republicans rushing a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court nine days before the election while ignoring the coronavirus crisis and admitting they're 'not going to control the pandemic':

'Nine days before the election and while millions of Americans are casting their ballots, Senate Republicans are rushing to fill a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court - the latest push in their decade-long crusade to gut the Affordable Care Act and end protections for pre-existing conditions. It also comes as Republicans block critical coronavirus relief and admit just this morning that they're 'not going to control the pandemic. ' Americans are already voting in record numbers because they know that as long as Senate Republicans are still in power, our health care and recovery from this pandemic are at risk.'
