Chen: Amy Coney Barrett Nomination is Not About Obamacare


Senate Democrats want the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be all about Obamacare and, more specifically, its protections for those with preexisting conditions. That’s because in a few weeks, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in California v. Texas, a lawsuit about the constitutionality of Obamacare.

But, as Judge Barrett correctly noted, Obamacare’s preexisting condition protections are not at issue before the Supreme Court in this case. Democrats are trying to mislead Americans into believing that the most politically popular elements of Obamacare are at risk while at the same time using some faulty assumptions to make their arguments.

Obamacare’s unpopular individual mandate is at issue. But even if Barrett and the Court find that the mandate is now unconstitutional, the rest of the law will likely stand, leaving its more popular provisions in place.

Judge Barrett will make many decisions on the Court if she is confirmed but causing the demise of Obamacare in the case before it this year won’t be one of them.

Hugh Hewitt: Court Packing Is a Threat to Core American Freedoms

For the good of the country, Joe Biden must clearly and definitively answer the court-packing question

The Supreme Court is now at center stage with the start of Senate confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett. The court is also now at the center of the presidential election as many Democrats demand that—if their party controls the White House and Senate after the election—the court be expanded to establish a liberal majority.

“Court packing” is now a major issue in the presidential campaign because neither Joe Biden nor Kamala Harris—his running mate—will say what they think about demands by their party’s radical wing to expand the court.

Court-packing is a threat to the Supreme Court and thus to every American freedom, especially religious liberty, and the Second Amendment and property rights, and the separation of powers fundamental to our republic’s durability.

The Biden-Harris ticket should publicly condemn the idea—and condemn it now.

Hewitt: The Great Constitutionalist


Two years ago I wrote of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s approach to judicial appointees who will respect America’s founding document, saying that it was not an overstatement that the Leader has saved the Constitution as we know it.

With the successful confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, McConnell will complete the effort of repairing a great breach in the Constitution that began half a century ago when the left commandeered the courts for the purposes of legislating from the bench instead of applying the law from there.

Much consequential legislation has been passed during McConnell’s tenure. But, it’s three new Supreme Court justices and—so far—53 appeals court judges, that mark McConnell’s contribution to the nation.

In the 19th century, Henry Clay, the Great Kentuckian, was called “the great compromiser.” Today, we ought to be referring to Leader McConnell as “the great constitutionalist.”
