(Right Country) – Amy Coney Barrett is a highly accomplished woman and judge. As a busy, working mother of seven it is incredibly impressive to see her sit in the Senate Judiciary Committee’s confirmation hearings and handle the political line of questioning from Senate Democrats so gracefully and appropriately. This is especially true in regards to the obnoxious badgering the Democrats are partaking in over the Affordable Care Act, which the Democrats have decided lives or dies by Amy Coney Barrett.
While she has a myriad of accomplishments to back-up President Trump’s nomination of her, being a policy maker on socialized medicine for the United States or healthcare in general is not among those accomplishments. That’s because she is a judge, not a Senator, not a House Rep, but a judge and judges are supposed to be apolitical and unbiased.
As Judge Barrett herself has pointed out the Senate Democrats, policy is their job, not hers.
The Democrats act as though Judge Barrett plans to somehow usurp the full authority of the Supreme Court and use it to reverse Roe v. Wade and shut down the Affordable Care Act all by herself. Of course, neither of these things are possible and level-headed, sane Americans know that but no one’s ever accused the Democrats of being level-headed or sane.
The Democrats have leveled one attack after another against Barrett in regards to the ACA even going as far as to claim that should Barrett be confirmed, which seems highly likely, that thousands of Americans could face certain death. Specifically, the Americans pictured on their blown-up cardboard pictures lining the room at the hearings that they are using as political pawns.
Surely Americans can see right through this absurd sham.
Among the attacks leveraged against Judge Barrett is one from failed presidential candidate Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) who alluded that Barrett may have made some kind of deal or agreement with President Trump as part of the terms of his nominating her. This is utterly absurd and, again, most level-headed, sane Americans can see just how ridiculous the accusation is.
Nonetheless, Judge Barrett was left to defend herself and defend herself she did in the most graceful and professional of ways. When confronted with the allegation from Klobuchar, Barrett calmly shut it down.
Klobuchar’s main focus was questioning Barrett on whether or not she was aware before her nomination that one of President Trump’s campaign promises was to shut down Obamacare.
“As I said before, I’m aware that the president opposes the Affordable Care Act,” Barrett responded.
“Well, I know you are aware now,” Klobuchar said. “But were you aware back then? When you were nominated?”
“Senator Klobuchar, I think that the Republicans have kind of made that clear, it’s just been part of the book, public discourse,” Judge Barrett responded.
“Is the answer yes, then,” Klobuchar pressed on.
“Well, Senator Klobuchar, all these questions you are suggesting that I have animus or that I cut a deal with the president,” Barrett responded, adding, “And I was very clear yesterday that that isn’t what happened.”
Amy Coney Barrett can be as clear as crystal with her answers to Senate Democrats, they only hear what they want to hear. They don’t care that she poses virtually no threat whatsoever to Obamacare but it’s all they have to use against her. They figure it’s the best way to drum up public support for their opposition of her nomination since it tugs at people’s heartstrings to listen to the stories of the sick Americans they inappropriately put forth.
Anyone paying attention can plainly see these sick Americans are just pawns in their game and their focus on the Affordable Care Act is just a charade.
