According to the White House, President Donald Trump is prepared as soon as tomorrow to nominate Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg — a far-right nominee who will tilt the balance of the court for a generation and put many fundamental rights, like abortion and health care, at-risk. If confirmed by the Senate Ms. Barrett will one of six conservative judges in the Supreme Court.
This will have a profound effect on everything from voting rights to affirmative action to race relation to employment and labor law to reproductive right and a woman right to an abortion.
This news is developing and tomorrow Trump will make it official. Democrats are p prepare to mount a political pressure campaign to force Republicans to wait after the election to vote on her nomination. Because the highest court in the land will be hugely out of balance, Democrats in the house are poised to propose new term limit legislations for Supreme Court judges. That actually is a good idea, but will it pass constitutional muster? This news is developing.
