Real Americans Will Be Hurt By Neil Gorsuch On The Supreme Court

Apr 10, 2017

American Bridge president Jessica Mackler released the following statement on the final nail in Donald Trump and Senate Republicans’ year-long boondoggle to spurn the Constitution and strong arm Neil Gorsuch onto the Supreme Court: 

“Donald Trump and Senate Republicans changed the Senate rules in order to force through the most far right, pro-corporate ideologue they could find onto the Supreme Court. Neil Gorsuch did not meet the bipartisan standards the Senate has used for centuries to confirm Supreme Court justices and as a result, should not have been confirmed.

“While Trump and Republicans are playing today off as a bright spot in an otherwise dark first three months, the end result remains a loss for the country. The people who Neil Gorsuch hurt with his rulings as a federal judge — as well as working families, minorities, women, and LGBT Americans — will be worse off in the future now that Neil Gorsuch is on the Supreme Court.”
