Supreme Court announcement live updates: Donald Trump set to name his nominee to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg - ABC News

Joe Biden weighs in



Amy Coney Barrett had barely stepped out of the White House before the Biden campaign was ready with the Democratic nominee's reaction to the news. Biden has drilled in on healthcare and the Affordable Care Act (known as Obamacare), which probably gives you some idea of how Democrats will go about opposing this nomination. Here's Biden:


"Even now, in the midst of a global health pandemic, the Trump Administration is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the entire law, including its protections for people with pre-existing conditions. If President Trump has his way, complications from COVID-19, like lung scarring and heart damage, could become the next deniable pre-existing condition," Biden said.

"Today, President Trump has nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett as the successor to Justice Ginsburg’s seat. She has a written track record of disagreeing with the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision upholding the Affordable Care Act. She critiqued Chief Justice John Roberts’ majority opinion upholding the law in 2012."


Biden's statement ends with a plea for the Senate not to act on this nomination until after this election.


"The American people know the U.S. Supreme Court decisions affect their everyday lives. The United States Constitution was designed to give the voters one chance to have their voice heard on who serves on the Court. That moment is now and their voice should be heard," he said.
