The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement on behalf of Chair Lavora Barnes on Donald Trump nominating Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court:

“Donald Trump has confirmed his number one policy priority: stripping health care from hundreds of thousands of Michiganders in the middle of a global pandemic. The nomination of Amy Coney Barrett is an unconscionable assault on the Affordable Care Act. The ACA protects people with pre-existing conditions and expanded access to Medicaid to countless families in our state. This is another attempt to use the Supreme Court to force through a dangerous agenda that was rejected by Congress and rejected by the American people. This nomination illustrates everything that is at stake this November and reminds voters across our state we must send Joe Biden to the White House and re-elect Gary Peters to the Senate to fight for our working families.”
