Today’s Action: Tell Democratic Senators to OBSTRUCT Trump’s Supreme Court nomination

In 2016, Mitch McConnell delayed the vote on President Obama’s nominee for over a year until Obama eventually left office. His stated reason: because a SCOTUS nomination shouldn’t happen during an election year.

Well, here we are, weeks from the election, and faced with extreme Republican hypocrisy that could cause decades of devastating damage in our judicial system and society.

Call or email your Senators. Tell Democrats to use every procedural tool to obstruct and block a Trump SCOTUS confirmation until we have a new president, including: the “two-hour rule,” refusing consent to slow down all legislation, denying quorum, points of order and roll call votes, and delaying the committee vote.

Tell Republicans you believe the person who wins November’s election should fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat. 

Civil rights are at stake. Abortion rights are at stake. Trump’s nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, doesn’t even believe in Brown v Board of Education, which desegregated our schools in 1954. Confirming Barrett secures a 6-3 extreme right wing majority on the court, and could legally send us back to the mid 1900’s.

We don’t just want Democratic Senators to vote against Judge Amy Coney Barrett, or just tweet about this disgrace of a Supreme Court confirmation process. We want them to use every tool, to do everything in their legal and procedural power to impede and block a Trump justice confirmation until after Inauguration Day.

Time to obstruct.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators. Tell Democrats to OBSTRUCT using every procedural option (read them the list above) to block any Trump Supreme Court nomination from getting confirmed. And tell Republicans to vote NO on any confirmation before Inauguration Day.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling Democratic senators to do everything they can to stop Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
