House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett an “illegitimate” member of the court.
Pelosi still does not accept the decision made by the U.S. Senate with a vote of 52 to 48, cast by Republican and Democratic senators respectively, the Daily Caller reported on Nov. 3.
The Democrats boycotted the appointment of Barrett from the beginning and assumed that she would be the one to determine the abolition of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) known as “Obamacare.”
This law will be reviewed by the Supreme Court on Nov. 10, when the process will begin by hearing oral arguments.
President Donald Trump included in his 2016 election agenda to repeal and replace Obamacare, which required most Americans to register or otherwise pay a penalty. This condition has already been eliminated.
As its replacement, President Trump launched the America First health care proposal.
It would allow “better care, with more options, at a much lower cost, and work to ensure that Americans have access to the care they need,” President Trump said during a speech in Charlotte, North Carolina, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
Barrett was nominated by President Trump to fill the position left vacant by the death of progressive Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The Supreme Court is composed of nine justices, and now with the Barrett’s appointment it increases the presence of conservatives to six, creating a more favorable balance for the overturning of Obamacare.
Pelosi has driven repeated and unsuccessful attempts by the Democrats to remove President Trump, and now, faced with the difficult prospect of obtaining the final results of the presidential election, she insists even more.
She accused President Trump of wanting to interfere with the election, “He is himself undermining the integrity of our elections,” she told MSNBC’s “The Beat,” according to Breitbart News.
After an intense Election Day in which preliminary results favor President Trump’s re-election, there are serious doubts about the transparency of the count, so President Trump may go to the Supreme Court to ensure its authenticity.
This was mentioned as part of a speech from the White House on Nov. 4.
“We will go to the U.S. Supreme Court. We want all the votes to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at 4 a.m. and add them to the list, okay? We will win this, and as far as I’m concerned, we already have,” he warned according to the New York Post.
