    Amy Coney Barrett Unanimously Recommended By Senate Judiciary Committee

    Amy Coney Barrett Unanimously Recommended By Senate Judiciary Committee

    The Democrats decided to put on a show and boycott the vote.
    Listen to this article

    The Senate Judiciary Committee’s executive business meeting kicked off at 9 a.m. ET.

    They unanimously voted to recommend Judge Amy Coney Barrett. She advances to the Senate floor.

    The Democrats boycotted the vote. The placed cardboard cutouts of people who would be “hurt” if she votes to appeal Obamacare.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell scheduled Barrett’s Senate confirmation vote for Monday, October 26.

    This means he will likely “tee up Barrett’s nomination” on Friday. The chamber will hold a procedural vote on Sunday.

    The senators then have 30 hours to debate Barrett’s nomination.

    Republicans have 53 seats, which means Barrett can lose three Republican seats and still win with Vice President Mike Pence to break the tie.

    Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) is the only Republican senator who has said she will not vote for Barrett.

    Someone should have swapped Durbin’s cardboard cutout for one of Toobin.

    Collins is a no, but my Murkowski is probably out there threatenening to be a no vote as well.
    She always takes hostages when she has a chance.
    And, she does kill them sometimes.
    It is all the power she has.

    Obamacare is a straw clown on one hand, a guarantor of progressive prices on the other. The issue is not insurance, or shared/shifted responsibility, but rather affordable and available health care.
