Past Campaign: Stop Gorsuch

Update: The Senate has confirmed Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

On April 7, the Senate pushed through the confirmation of the ultraconservative Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court.  See below to find out how your Senators voted on Gorsuch’s confirmation, then read down to find out more about Gorsuch.

Donald Trump has alarmed the nation with a wave of dangerous actions that show contempt for our Constitution and the rights and freedoms we cherish. At a time when our communities are under attack and our democratic institutions at risk, it’s more important than ever to have a Supreme Court that will safeguard our rights.

Neil Gorsuch is Wall Street’s best friend – not ours. He’s a buddy to big business who would gut protections for clean air and water, safe food and medicine, and consumers and investors.  And that’s not all.

Neil Gorsuch poses a dangerous threat to civil rights, women’s reproductive rights, the rights of LGBTQ communities, and workers’ rights. How do we know? Because he once ruled that “corporations are people.”

Every day, the Trump administration takes another step that puts real people’s lives at risk, tears at the fabric of our society and makes us all more vulnerable. The Supreme Court is our bulwark against a strong-arm administration, a check on abuses and excesses. Neil Gorsuch won’t check this president, and he won’t stand up for our rights. And that’s why he’s wrong for the Court.


Update: The Senate has confirmed Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

Judge Neil Gorsuch has a dangerous record of putting the whims of big business and government executives over the rights of everyday people. He won’t be an independent justice, and he won’t protect our rights.

With Senators departing for a two-week recess, now is the time for all of us to make our voices heard.  Use these resources to help you plan events and activities in your home district.
