DFA members across the country are standing with Sen. Jeff Merkley's plan to launch a filibuster against Neil Gorsuch, Donald Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court.
Unfortunately, some Senate Democrats are already squishy on using a filibuster to stop Gorsuch. Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut said "We should not repeat the Republican wrong. Two wrongs don't make a right," referring to Republican obstruction of Merrick Garland last year.
This is completely wrong. Surrendering on Gorsuch now would mean Trump gets to put someone even more conservative than Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court at a time when justices will rule on Trump's unconstitutional Executive Orders.
At a time when Americans are taking to the streets to save freedom and democracy, it is unacceptable and appalling for any Democrat to do anything other than stand with us and do whatever it takes to stop Trump and stop him from getting a Supreme Court majority. We have to fight back with every tool at our disposal. Call now to stop Neil Gorsuch!
