Summary

They noted that Barrett, like Trump, has criticized Chief Justice John Roberts for voting to uphold the ACA in 2012.And they noted that Trump, after picking Barrett to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, tweeted that it’d be “a big WIN for the USA” if the ACA is “terminated by the Supreme Court.”Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., the Democratic vice presidential nominee, accused Senate Republicans of “rushing” to confirm Barrett in order to “get a justice on to the court in time to ensure they can strip away the protections in the Affordable Care Act.”“If they succeed, it will result in millions of people losing access to health care at the worst possible time in the middle of a pandemic,” she said, speaking via videoconference.Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., told the nominee that she was picked to advance the conservative policy goals: “Judge Barrett, I’m not suggesting you made some secret deal with President Trump, but I believe the reason you were chosen is precisely because your judicial philosophy, as repeatedly stated, could lead to the outcomes President Trump has sought.”The issue appears to be driving Joe Biden's lead in the presidential race.
