Trump has announced his pick for the Supreme Court. Brett Kavanaugh is one of the most conservative and extremist right wing nominees. During the presidential campaign as Senator Sanders has said Trump said he would pick someone who would overturn Roe v. Wade. This nominee will rule in favor of corporations and against workers rights. If confirmed conservatives will have a majority on the Supreme Court for decades. We will have more disastrous decisions like Citizens United which has been more harmful than originally thought. A conservative nominee like Kavanaugh will not only overturn Roe v. Wade but will attack women’s reproductive rights like never before. Corporations will have an ally in him, widening the gap between billionaires and working and middle class workers. In addition to women’s reproductive rights, civil rights will also suffer. Most recently the Supreme Court decision in favor of Trump’s Muslim ban dealt a severe blow to civil rights and human rights of Muslims who are fleeing wars where America has played a big role in decimating the very countries the refugees are fleeing from. Confirming someone like Kavanaugh is something the Koch Brothers have worked towards for many years. Legal precedents will be ignored in favor of meeting the conservative agenda of targeting civil rights of workers, unions, ruling in favor of MNCs, gay rights will not be safe from a Supreme Court that has become increasingly conservative and political in its decisions. Kavanaugh is a strong advocate gun rights. Bernie Sanders plans to fight for workers and women’s rights by traveling across the country to increase support against this nomination. Kavanaugh is a big supporter Christian conservative groups who fight to deny contraception to women based on their religious beliefs. We already have more than 40 million people living in poverty. While Wall Street gets richer the middle class continues to shrink working 2-3 jobs just to survive. Senate must defeat this nomination.
