American Bridge Statement on Jeff Flake's Vote for Neil Gorsuch

Apr 03, 2017

Following Jeff Flake’s vote to advance Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, American Bridge President Jessica Mackler made the following statement:

“By voting for Neil Gorsuch today, Jeff Flake played partisan politics and abandoned Arizonans. Judge Gorsuch has a reckless record of putting the profits of big corporations above the needs of ordinary workers. Just as bad, Gorsuch fails to recognize a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions — even arguing that employers have a right to stop their female employees from buying contraception with their own insurance.

“At Gorsuch’s confirmation hearings, Flake joked around instead of asking serious questions about how Gorsuch’s reckless judicial philosophy will impact Arizonans. But Arizonans won’t be surprised by Flake’s vote, because Senator Flake has already proven he doesn’t take his responsibility as a Senator seriously — and now he’s proven that not even our nation’s highest court is above partisan politics.
