Congressman Tim Ryan Statement on the Nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court
Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Ryan released this statement following President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.
“Brett Kavanaugh's nomination has reinforced what we already knew: President Trump wants a Supreme Court willing to fight for corporations’ rights as a ‘person,’ but not for the rights of workers to collectively bargain and earn a living wage. He wants a court that will fight to uphold Citizens United and allow unlimited money in our political system, but not for a loving same-sex couple to join together in marriage. And especially so this time, he wants a court that will toss aside established precedent and take away a women’s right to her own healthcare and reproductive decisions. Mitch McConnell should follow his own precedent and forgo any vote on a replacement until after the American people have had their voices heard in the midterms,” said Congressman Ryan.
