  1. Don’t count Susan Collins in as one against the vote. She’s a proven liar 🤥

    • agreed

    • Everyone of you is completely fooling yourselves if you think you are going to stop this. Every Republican Senator will vote yes the day after the election. No sense in going on the record before the election when it could sway someone’s vote. You get the election vote and then hold the nomination vote.

    • Deborah Freedman | September 21, 2020 at 3:07 PM | Reply

      If a confirmation vote is held before the election, she’d be afraid of confirming. What I worry about is if it is held after the election, and she is already a lame duck.

  2. Reaching out to most Republicans is futile. We need to actively do something to stop this travesty.

    • @April the Cat Esquire too bad you’re the sheeple. And actively subvert yourself and what America is about, freedom.

      *“Completely Unsustainable”: Obamacare Destroys Middle Class, Rising As Much as 67%. Just in 2017.*
      Oct 2016

      *Like dozens of other states across the country, its government-mandated health care exchange is facing steeply-rising premiums for individual plans at levels that are both outrageous and completely impossible for the average Middle Class family to pay or keep up with.*

      And as future rates continue to rise – and it’s going to hurt a lot of people.

      Because the system was designed to fail; or, because the government and health care lobbies have so little regard for the people that will actually have to live and die by their rules, the prices are skyrocketing by more than 50% in Minnesota – and by similarly absurd numbers in other states – and the exchange narrowly avoiding collapsing altogether in 2017.

      via the Daily Caller:

      Minnesota will let health insurers increase their rates by at least 50 percent next year to protect the state’s Obamacare health insurance individual market from “collapse,” the state announced Friday.


      The increase in premiums for next year will range between 50 percent and a staggering 67 percent. This comes on the heels of an increase of between 14 percent and 49 percent for 2016. After those increases, Rothman warns, the annual growth rate will be completely unsustainable, showing a desperate need for reform.

      Of course, this massive failure – which, like everything else in the Obama Administration, is taking the heaviest toll on the middle class – is by design. Sen. Harry Reid admitted that the plan would collapse, only to usher in a truly-socialized single payer health care system from the ashes.

      Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) was asked whether his goal was to move Obamacare to a single-payer system. His answer? “Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.” (source)

      Regardless of the future of the system, it is hurting middle class Americans now, who are finding health care anything but affordable. Unlike those in the lower ranks of the working poor and the dependent, there are no government subsidies for those who work independently, and make too much for hand outs, but who are still a long way from being able to shell out for the cost of coverage.

      All that is definitely no good… the backbone of a vibrant American populace is being undermine and destroyed.

      As the Daily Caller notes:

      “Middle-class Minnesotans in particular are being crushed by the heavy burden of these costs. There is a clear and urgent need for reform to protect Minnesota consumers who purchase their own health insurance,” Rothman said at the time.

      About five percent of Minnesota residents, roughly 250,000 people, are dependent on the individual market for their health insurance. Obamacare requires all American adults who do not receive health insurance from their employer to either buy individual health insurance or pay a fine. The persistent increases in the price of individual insurance are a sign of a potential “death spiral” in the individual market, as the massive cost increases will likely encourage more people to go without insurance and pay the fine instead, thereby reducing the customer base for insurers and forcing additional rate hikes.

    The future of America is at stake. Whenever did. these once responsible people go over to the dark side of becoming unAmerican?

    The Republican party is making sure that if trump loses the election, they have enough votes on the supreme court to stop him from going to jail

  5. It is dishonorable, dishonest, and highly hypocritical for Republicans to renege on their pledge about nominating SCOTUS justices in an election year. But, we already knew they were dishonorable, dishonest, and highly hypocritical power-obsessed hyper-partisan political hacks disgracing themselves, their party, and Congress.

    The only time a Supreme Court Justice died this close to a sitting President election was when Lincoln was President. He decided the right thing to do was to wait until after the election to nominate someone to Supreme Court. Donald Trump, not an Abraham Lincoln, does what inflates his enormous ego, aided by Master Liar Mitch McConnell, who along with other Republican Senators went back on their word. Today, the Republican Party, once “The Party of Lincoln”, have nothing in common with Abraham Lincoln. By the way, the only other primate besides Trump that is orange, is an orangutan. Trump should be called “Orangutan Man”.

  7. I don’t understand why this isn’t a legal issue since the precedence was set in 2016 when republicans DENIED Obama appointing a new justice.

    • @Steven P
      But their Constitutional duty is “advice and consent.’ And they did neither. If they had a vote, Garland would have been confirmed. Therefore they were wrong.

    • @Jock Young sad but true

    • @Jock Young How do you know? at that time you needed 2/3rds majority. It could have been filibustered or straight lost. there is also no timeline they have to follow. It’s called checks and balances. The People took away Obama’s majority in the Senate for a reason.

    • @Steven P no they denied his nomination so he couldn’t appoint. Funny that not one republican has brought up your point, in fact Cruz claimed not in 80 years have we appointed a justice in an election year. Lindsey also no mention of what you say, it was all about NO APPOINTING JUSTICE IN AN ELECTION YEAR. So while your theory sounds good, i have yet to see real proof.

    • @RV He actually knows of what he speaks.

    I like her, she said we will fight, that’s being a strong woman

  9. *👉Voting Against Trump isn’t ‘Right’ or ‘Left’..*
    *👉..simply put, its what Jesus would do.👍*

    *👉Trumps Presidency has only highlighted the ‘True Nature’ of this GOP!*
    *🤢🤮 **#Sickening** 😤 I will not NOT vote Republican again…EVER! 😡*

  10. Dems are going to have to get ugly. Lets impeach run out ⏰ start with barr.

    • @UCRoqprhf8nIAfdr672CrHNg nice name “Shawn” lol. I smell a bot.

    • @Le Chat Noir Not weak, gullible. Democrats believe in honor and respect of the members of Congress so expect it. Republicons have no honor. Republicons have no respect for anything, … RBG was not even in the ground and they started this we will put a justice on the court stuff as if it could not wait 3|4 days.

    • @James Oxford lol, you are delusional, you actually think you can stop the Senate from making a vote?

    • @Steven P Doesn’t matter? Yes IT ALL would… It might not be another impeachment final vote out… But it would put a monkey wrench in their game! With the laundry list of since then’s? I’d say the clock will be beyond Jan. 2021

    • @Rona Love no idea what you’re trying to say

  11. Trump and his enablers are in fact the enemies of the American people.

    • @Melvin Gillham no, you’re idiocy… incarnate.

    • @Miguel Fraino she did more in her last 6 months than a magat like you will do in a lifetime.

    • @LadyJAtheist chinee troll. Good riddance. The hag did nothing. She wanted to influence the selection of the empty heat.

    • @LadyJAtheist says a Godless heathen in menstrual distress, I hear midol helps cupcake.

    • @Peter C ITS not a question of agreeing its proofs all over that trump is a traitor and all his anablers are traitors for allowing for this TRAITOR TO CONTINUE KILLING AMERICANS AND DEMOCRACY AS THEY GET RICH DOING IT you MORRON !!!!!!!

  12. We have to vote Trump, McConnell, Graham and other republicans out. They are so dangerous to the U.S. and the world.

  13. Our court justices are supposed to be bi-partisan. There shouldn’t be any party influences. Not only are the police departments polluted with corruption, but our entire U.S. legal system should be revamped. It’s a damned shame.

    Fight back now! And smash the republicans!

  15. Five point Plan for Joe Biden’s Presidency
    1. Expand Supreme Court by two further judges (and immediately nominate social progressives
    to counter the Trump extreme right-wing nominations)
    2. Abolish the Electoral College and enforce direct Popular Vote Presidential Elections
    3. Expand Obamacare to make it look like the British NHS
    4. Redirect 20% of miltary personnel and expenditure SIGNIFICANTLY towards Civil Defence roles protecting US lives against the many natural disasters that we face, and against domestic terrorism of all types, inclusive of school shootings.
    5. Leave all litigation against Trump’s conspicuous Fraud and Treason entirely to the
    courts without ANY government interference.


  17. I laugh at the people who support a man well Donald. Who doesn’t care about you nor ur family including mines…COVID 19

    “I don’t think science knows” person who claimed there were airports in 1776

  19. All because of Toxic Trump and Republican’s poisonous pathological lying:
    Hundreds of thousands of Americans are senselessly suffering and needlessly dying.

    • This is the thought that never leaves my mind. But now is our time to pull on our big boy/girl pants and get into this fight for our lives. The rich will NOT keep getting richer on our backs when we draw the line. The buck stops with us, actually. Stop feeding the beast, let’s feed ourselves and our democracy. People are getting wiser,since trump showed them the true face of the bottom-feeders without any disguise. Republicans against trump is a movement now, and yes, better late than never. We can get this accomplished, and this enormous suffering can be our motivation now !

    • You should take that issue up with the deep state and CCP.

  20. America you are fighting for your souls NOW!!! Vote death, corruption, racism, and Russia out
