DSCC spokesperson Helen Kalla issued the following statement on Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans rubber stamping Trump's anti-health care Supreme Court nominee today:
"In the middle of an ongoing public health crisis, Senate Republicans have abandoned hardworking Americans who desperately need additional relief in favor of rushing a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court who is hostile to the ACA - just in time to hear oral arguments in the GOP's dangerous lawsuit to dismantle the entire Affordable Care Act, including protections for pre-existing conditions.
"Senate Republicans have enabled this lawsuit every step of the way, just as they have attacked access to quality, affordable health care for the past decade, and they still have zero plans to replace the health care law if it is overturned.
"With just days to go until Election Day, this rubber stamp vote is yet another reminder to voters that Republicans in the Senate will stop at nothing to take away their health care."
