Chuck Schumer Pledges To Adamantly Oppose Brett Kavanaugh

Chuck Schumer went into full blown whiny lib mode on the Senate floor yesterday, hours before President Trump even made his announcement.

“It is near impossible to imagine that President Trump would select a nominee who isn’t hostile to our healthcare law and health care … who isn’t hostile to a woman’s freedom to make her own health care decisions,” Schumer declared.

He slammed Trump’s pick before it was even official.

#Resisters gonna #resist.

Since the official announcement, Schumer has been in full blown meltdown mode. He’s convinced we’re all about to lose our unalienable Constitutional rights, which apparently include abortion.

Here’s his full statement. It’s a doozy.

“In selecting Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court, President Trump has put reproductive rights and freedoms and health care protections for millions of Americans on the judicial chopping block. His own writings make clear that he would rule against reproductive rights and freedoms, and that he would welcome challenges to the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act.

“President Trump repeatedly promised to nominate justices to the bench who are hostile to Roe v. Wade, and who will undermine our health care laws. He has picked Judge Kavanaugh from a list of 25 people who were vetted and approved by the Federalist Society and Heritage Foundation – special interest groups devoted to overturning Roe and striking down the Affordable Care Act. With this pick, the president is making good on his pledge to ‘punish’ women for their choices. Judge Kavanaugh got the nomination because he passed this litmus test, not because he’ll be an impartial judge on behalf of all Americans. If he were to be confirmed, women’s reproductive rights would be in the hands of five men on the Supreme Court.

“The Senate has come together on a bipartisan basis to protect women’s reproductive rights and to protect health care for millions of Americans before – including those with pre-existing conditions. We need to do it again. I will oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have, and I hope a bipartisan majority will do the same. The stakes are simply too high for anything less.

“If Americans believe in a woman’s right to make her own reproductive choices, and that health insurance companies shouldn’t be able to charge people more based on pre-existing conditions, now is the time to fight. I’m calling on Americans from all walks of life to make their voices heard from now until the end of this battle.

“This nomination could alter the balance of the court in favor of powerful special interests and against working families for a generation, and would take away labor, civil, and human rights from millions of Americans. We cannot let that happen. If we can successfully block this nomination, it could lead to a more independent, moderate selection that both parties could support.”

Kavanaugh’s presence on the Supreme Court would result in the loss of labor, civil, and human rights. He REALLY wants low-fos to believe that. OMG Trump picked someone who will uphold the principles of the Constitution, RUN FOR THE HILLS!

The hysterics didn’t stop there, either. He told CBS News that he’s going to oppose Kavanaugh with everything he’s got.

Let the meltdowns commence…
