Please join with RootsAction, DailyKos, and a big coalition in sending a letter to your senators to block Trump's Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. Click here.
Donald Trump's nominee to fill the vacant seat on the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch, is moving along in confirmation hearings. Gorsuch is a right-wing ideologue, but even Senate Democrats are not sure they'll reject his confirmation. We can't let him onto the Supreme Court.
Based on his record and writings, Gorsuch would likely:
- end a woman's right to choose;
- give corporations unchecked power;
- eviscerate what remains of the Voting Rights Act;
- send clean water and clean air laws to the scrap heap;
- uphold extreme Republican gerrymanders;
- allow billionaires to spend unlimited amounts of money to buy elections;
- and more.

By all accounts -- including those of the religious right and anti-government think tanks -- Gorsuch is an extreme right-wing ideologue. Academic analyses of his record have found that Gorsuch is more conservative than 86% of the federal judiciary, to the right of Antonin Scalia himself. The current Supreme Court just unanimously overturned one of his own decisions that would have taken away disabled students' right to an education.
So a number of progressive organizations are joining together to call on the Senate to reject Gorsuch's nomination: #AllofUs, AMERICAblog, Climate Hawks Vote, Common Defense, Daily Kos, Demand Progress, End Citizens United, and RootsAction.
More than ever, the U.S. needs an independent court system to safeguard against Trump's reckless agenda and protect people. Gorsuch won't stand up to Trump; in fact, he'll ensure that Trump's extreme right-wing agenda will last for decades to come through the Supreme Court. He'll undo years of progress.
