A GOP Congress, unstable president, and Trump rubber stamp on the Supreme Court
The confirmation hearings for Donald Trump's pro-corporation, ultra-conservative nominee -- Neil Gorsuch -- began today.
There's no question that he'd be a disaster if confirmed to the Supreme Court.
Gorsuch hasn't shied away from making his right-wing political views known in his public statements throughout his career and rulings.
He sided with Hobby Lobby in the notorious case that allowed employers to refuse to provide contraceptive coverage to their female employees.
He believes that corporations are people, and has continually ruled against working people in cases that involve allegations of employers discriminating against employees because of their race, sex, age, and disability. In one noteworthy case, he was the lone judge to rule against a trucker who was fired when he abandoned his trailer to avoid freezing to death.
And if all that weren't enough to make you question Neil Gorsuch's ability to rule impartially and fairly, he has even written about his personal disdain for liberals using the judicial system to protect the civil rights of all Americans.
With a dangerous GOP-controlled Congress and an unstable president, the last thing we need is a Donald Trump toady like Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court.
Democrats are standing together to make sure that Neil Gorsuch isn't confirmed to the highest court in the land. Add your name and say you'll join us to stop Neil Gorsuch.
