Republicans use the courts to push an extreme agenda
Republicans have long understood that the courts are central to implementing their extreme, unpopular agenda. A Republican-controlled Congress and White House can’t repeal the Affordable Care Act? Ask the court to strike it down instead. Support for Roe v. Wade at a record high? Just tee up a dozen cases for the five Republican men on the Supreme Court to criminalize abortion for you.
When Republicans have power, they manipulate and leverage it to the greatest extent possible to achieve their highest priority: packing the courts with narrow-minded judges who will favor corporations and the powerful, while turning back the clock on our rights, for generations. – Daily Beast
Appeals court temporarily halts Biden’s student debt relief program
“Our student loan plan lowers costs for Americans as they recover from the pandemic to give everybody a little more breathing room,” Biden said. “Republican members of Congress, Republican governors are doing everything they can to deny this relief. Their outrage is wrong and it’s hypocritical.” Some 22 million people have applied for the program since a soft launch of the website a week ago. Another 8 million people are eligible for automatic debt relief. Now those borrowers will have to wait for a conservative panel of judges on the 8th Circuit to decide the fate of the loan forgiveness program. – WaPo

GOP packed Supreme Court overturn Roe v Wade
What will happen when someone you love needs an abortion someday? Four out of five Americans support abortion in all or most cases, and yet extremist judges have begun to rip away our freedom to decide when and if we have children. Many of us have watched someone we love struggle with a pregnancy. #ProtectOurFreedoms and protect someone you love, no matter what happens in their future. Vote Democrats in November.
