The stakes of the 2024 presidential election are high: MAGA extremism remains the political core of the Republican Party, and Donald Trump is already positioned as the frontrunner for the GOP nomination. As President Biden laid out in his announcement today, we need a unified coalition to not only stand against MAGA extremists, but to fight for our abortion rights, our freedoms, and our democracy.
After months of refusing to provide specifics about their hostage demands, we finally know what Kevin McCarthy and House Republicans want in exchange for doing the bare minimum to avert a financial catastrophe. And it's just as bad as we expected. Literally take food off the table of millions of families just trying to get by.
Today’s ruling from a MAGA judge – who was hand-selected to hear this case by the anti-abortion activists who brought it – is an audacious act of judicial meddling in our personal healthcare decisions.
Americans are tired of justices who act with this little regard to the law and as though they are immune from consequences – whether it’s Thomas and his lavish vacations or his colleague Samuel Alito’s alleged leak of a Supreme Court decision to right-wing anti-abortion activists, clearly the Court has gone off the rails and is in desperate need of reforms in order to restore its legitimacy.
Judge Janet Protasiewicz’s victory is a testament to her ability to connect with the voters through her commitment to protecting and fighting for every person’s right to choice, freedom, and democracy. She is beyond qualified, and will bring balance and much-needed perspective to the Supreme Court of Wisconsin.
This is exactly what we want to see from the President on issues like this. In a split Congress, Democrats need to fight back against the GOP’s framing of hot-button issues, and present a clear vision about what we're for and what we're against.
By voting no on today’s committee vote, Democrats not only proved their commitment to the residents of D.C., and their right to home rule, but also rejected a blatant attempt by the MAGA GOP to jam them up on a ‘gotcha’ vote.
It’s official: we’ve entered the era of Donald Trump’s criminal accountability. Whatever happens with this indictment, the ground has shifted for Trump and those who would do anything to see him get re-elected.
