Not a rubber stamp

The Supreme Court occupies a hallowed, special place in our government – with lifetime appointments and vetting by the president and by Congress, the Court is supposed to help us rise above politics and ensure that we uphold the values of the Constitution and the rule of law.

But now we face a crisis. Trump has nominated Brett Kavanaugh – an unabashed partisan who believes the president is immune from criminal prosecution – to fill the seat vacated by Anthony Kennedy.

Congress controlled by the far-right, a White House led by a demagogue who spreads fear and hate, and now a Supreme Court lurching even further away from safeguarding the beliefs we hold dear: equity, fairness, justice.

Our three branches are meant to balance each other in service to the American people, not function as a rubber stamp for Donald Trump's worst impulses.

It won't be easy, but taking back Congress is the only way to revive our democracy's crucial checks and balances. Please make sure you're registered to vote so we can take back Congress and ensure that no one is above the law.
