Neil Gorsuch, Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, is on Capitol Hill this week for the start of his confirmation hearings. We don't know much about Gorsuch, but here's what we do know: he's a radical supporter of big business who believes corporations are people.
Democrats are going to make Neil Gorsuch answer some tough questions about his record -- and then fight like hell to stop his confirmation. Can we count on you to stand with us?
Gorsuch's rulings have been said to "defy common sense and fairness" -- and you don't have to dig too deep to figure out why. He routinely sides with CEOs and corporate interests over the interests of hardworking Americans. He has ruled in favor of insurance companies who want to deny disability benefits and employers facing discrimination claims from their employees.
He was also closely involved in the Bush Administration's assertion that the powers of the president cannot be checked by the judiciary -- so it's not hard to imagine why Donald Trump, who has repeatedly attacked court rulings striking down his unconstitutional Muslim ban, finds him so appealing.
If he's confirmed, Gorsuch would be a stool pigeon for corporate interests, a stone wall standing in the way of working people seeking justice, and a rubber stamp for Donald Trump's extreme agenda on our nation's highest court.
Add your name right now to stand with Democrats who are fighting back, and tell the Senate to reject Judge Neil Gorsuch's nomination:
Thanks so much,
Deputy Communications Director
