Senators with taxpayer-funded health insurance are huddling in a chamber with a woman whose nomination ceremony was a super spreader event to confirm her to a stolen Supreme Court seat during a pandemic so she can take health insurance away from tens of millions of Americans.
Amy Klobuchar says the American people are the only thing that can alter Barrett's hearings: "It is you calling Republican senators and telling them enough is enough, telling them it is personal, telling them they have their priorities wrong. So do it" https://t.co/uScvfX9o80
Amy Klobuchar just nailed her speech. CALL your senators now to say this process is a sham. Protect the ACA and women's rights. We the people need our voices to be heard. Please act on this.
The message sent by a roomful of Republican Senators who aren’t wearing masks, despite some being recently Covid-positive, is at best irresponsible & at worst will reinforce the beliefs of some that masking is unnecessary, which will lead to more infection & serious consequences.
Sen. Sasse is prattling on about this hearing being confusing to 8th grade civics students because Senators are talking about COVID. Know what would confuse students? McConnell & Graham’s statements 4 years ago (no hearing for Garland 8 months out) but now? A hearing 3 weeks out!
would be our second Catholic president ever. He regularly attends mass and has spoken movingly about the strength his faith gave him in moments of grief. Where were these Republican senators when Trump outrageously attacked Biden's faith, saying he'd "hurt God?"
Honestly don't know where people got the idea that if you suddenly that paying 🇳🇬police N400k or N1m a month, they'll start acting right...
The 🇳🇬Senators & rep members are one of the highest paid lawmakers IN THE WORLD, that hasnt stopped their thieving & corruption
Sen. Mike Lee is actively spreading COVID-19 to United States Senators.
In most societies, this would be considered bio terrorism.
Klobuchar makes the best case: Go after the Republican senators.
Remember that the Senate's floor activity has been cancelled because of senators testing positive for COVID, but one of those senators was just mask-less and yelling in the Judiciary Committee hearing room. I just can't get over how astonishingly irresponsible this is.
Did I somehow miss the part of these #SCOTUShearings where all of the DEM Senators attacked Barrett for her religion?
GOP Senators keep saying it, but I didn't see it.
I don’t know how to explain to US Senators that they should care about other people.
opens her (remote) appearance by criticizing the “reckless” decision to hold such a large hearing at all amid a COVID outbreak among senators.
Thank you, Mr. President, for your excellent choice of Amy Coney Barrett.
These Dem Senators are a joke, trying to slander her.
Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee began the Supreme Court nomination hearings — with at least two senators recently testing COVID positive, and others refusing to test.
Amy Klobuchar tells the American people they are the only thing stopping Barrett's confirmation: "It is you calling Republican senators and telling them enough is enough-telling them it is personal, telling them they have their priorities wrong. So do it."
‘I think this hearing is a sham’ — Sen. Amy Klobuchar calls on Americans to urge their senators to oppose Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination, saying: ‘This isn’t Donald Trump’s country. It is yours. This shouldn’t be Donald Trump’s judge.’
Sasse argues against judicial "activism"... while supporting a nominee who will overturn a popular health care law passed by the House, 60 Senators, and signed by a President.
"They've got two H's today ... hypocrisy and health care," @clairecmc
says about the focus of Democratic senators at the confirmation hearing for US Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
he prospect of Republican senators marching lock-step to confirm a justice should help Democrats boost their already commanding position in Senate races. Only by retaking the Senate can a Democratic-led Congress prevent conservative rule by the judiciary.
Fitting that COVID-positive @GOP
Senators traveled to DC—willingly infecting everyone in their path—so that they can confirm a SCOTUS justice to strip healthcare from millions of people.
At least they're consistent in their indifference towards American lives. https://t.co/VCDffq91mN
Kennedy says he doesn't think the Founders intended courts to "rewrite our statutes" in defense of a woman who will overturn a popular health care bill that was passed by Congress, 60 US Senators, and signed by a President who then ran on that bill for reelection and won.
have to watch the Coney Barrett hearings live if that will be destructive to you in any way.
Use that time to do some phonebanking or textbanking to GOTV, and to call your senators.
Take care of yourself, and be intentional about where you put your energy.
America has the highest maternal mortality rate among developed nations and it's 3x worse for Black mothers and all these Senators who suddenly care about Coney Barrett's motherhood are working to repeal what few health care protections American mothers have
The ONLY thing we can do to stop this FU in our face is to call our Senators. They need to feel the pressure of our outrage. 202-224-3121. Tell them NO. #BlockBarrett https://t.co/bFQkjB4Dpe
We HAVE no president.
We have a lawless thug in the White House, a racist, a fascist, a scheming traitor with multiple psychiatric disorders.

There is nothing Dems can do to block republicans from confirming Amy Coney Barrett
It’s up to us. The best we can is bombard at risk republican senators (McSally, Gardner, Collins, etc) with call and remind them what WE want and what’s at stake https://t.co/LOxzunZCoj
Sen. Graham stops to talk to reporters, starts to take off mask, is asked to put it back on and does. Says he tested negative a bit over a week ago and says it wouldn’t be be easy to mandate all senators test negative before hearing
The Judiciary Committee’s Republican majority gave the FBI a week and said agents could interview four people. The list was later expanded to 10 people at the insistence of the swing-vote senators.
Lawyers for Ford and Ramirez, however, sent letters to Wray that, together,
