Democrats were just caught red-handed. They violated a major Supreme Court rule and now they have to pay for the consequences. The American people will not stand for this hypocrisy.
“Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee repeatedly violated the ‘Ginsburg rule’ … which is that potential Supreme Court justices should not be required to comment on cases that might come before them once they are confirmed,” reported Joel B. Pollak with Breitbart News.
During Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearings this week, Democrats repeatedly brought up the Affordable Care Act — otherwise known as Obamacare — and the pending case before the Supreme Court that will determine the law’s future.
But even the left’s hero, the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, refused to comment on pending cases that she may have to review. This is is the right choice in order to preserve the independence of the judicial branch, but not according to Democrats.
At the very least, Democrats are being hypocritical about it — they refuse to apply the same rule to Barrett in their questioning. It is political grandstanding and opportunism at its most disgusting and they should be ashamed.
But they have no shame. As Pollak noted, in spite of the ‘Ginsburg rule,’ “Democrats repeatedly raised the case as a reason not to confirm Barrett, saying it would mean that vulnerable people would lose their health care.”
