"I’d like to point out that it is the height of irony that Republicans held this Supreme Court seat open for nearly a calendar year while President Obama was in office, but are now rushing to fill the seat for a president whose campaign is under investigation by the FBI."
Sen. Schumer is correct. Beyond the unprecedented, unprincipled, un-American blockade of Merrick Garland, we can't even be sure the current administration is legitimate. We need Democrats to defend the Supreme Court—and the country—by stopping Trump's "Yes Man" from being confirmed to a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court.

Call Senator Gary C. Peters at (202) 224-6221. Demand they use every tool—including supporting filibuster—to keep Gorsuch off of the highest court. (If you've already called, thank you! You can keep calling as much as you want, or forward this message to your friends in state and ask them to make calls.)

Despite grassroots opposition to Trump's Supreme Court "Yes Man," many Democratic senators still haven't endorsed Sen. Jeff Merkley's filibuster. It's not enough for Senate Democrats to vote "no" on Gorsuch's final confirmation, they must also support the filibuster. Republicans only hold 52 seats and are unable to end a filibuster and move forward with confirming Gorsuch unless some Democrats join them.

Between repealing health care—including abortion access—for millions, a Muslim ban, eliminating or privatizing life-saving social safety net programs like Meals on Wheels and Medicare and rolling back crucial environmental protections—it's never been more important to have a check on the excesses and whims of reckless, runaway federal government.

The Supreme Court is the check on an amoral, right-wing agenda and the final battleground for everything we hold dear. We cannot allow a right-wing ideologue to push an agenda that benefits the ultra-wealthy, while leaving the rest of us to fight over scraps.

Trump should not be allowed to make lifetime appointments until we're sure that this regime is legitimate. Since Republicans lack courage and morality, Senate Democrats are the only firewall we have against a Trumpian Supreme Court. Together, we must make sure Democrats know that we will have their backs if they act boldly and will hold them accountable if they fail.
