Dingell Statement on Supreme Court Nomination

July 9, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-12) issued the following statement after Brett Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court:

“This Supreme Court vacancy matters to working men, women, and families. This is not just an academic debate. Recently, we saw the Court uphold the discriminatory Muslim Ban and undermine public sector unions ability to advocate for their members. If confirmed, Brett Kavanaugh will make critical decisions about healthcare, freedom of speech and religion, the environment, voting rights, civil rights, marriage equality, and many other issues during their lifetime appointment. The Administration is fighting in court against the Affordable Care Act and pre-existing conditions protections. It’s vital that we have an independent voice who will objectively evaluate the law.”
