  1. Jerry Nadler:

    For the President to go around Congress and say 'you don't agree there's an emergency, I think there's an emergency, we're going to spend the money that you said no you won't spend' is upending democratic government, is making the President a dictator, and that's a far greater risk to our government and to our freedom than almost anything else that's going on.

  4. Chris Kang:

    This is clearly a new day. We are witnessing a revolution in how Democrats are considering and prioritizing judicial nominees, led by President President Biden and embodied by chief of staff Ron Klain, they are upending the model of lawyers that Democratic presidents will consider for Senate Judiciary. Prosecutors and corporate lawyers are out ; civil rights lawyers, public defenders and labor lawyers are in.

  5. Nancy Northup:

    We are devastated that the Supreme Court has refused to block a law that blatantly violates Roe v. Wade. Right now, people seeking abortion across Texas are panicking — they have no idea where or when they will be able to get an abortion, if ever. Texas politicians have succeeded for the moment in making a mockery of the rule of law, upending abortion care in Texas, and forcing patients to leave the state — if they have the means — to get constitutionally protected healthcare. This should send chills down the spine of everyone in this country who cares about the constitution.
