Why Amy Coney Barrett Is A Threat To Progress


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Alex Morgan about how Amy Coney Barrett is a threat to U.S. democracy.

This week marks four days of Senate confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as Senators from both major parties ask questions of the 48-year old Antonin Scalia protégé.

Barrett has remained elusive of her positions on many critical issues including the Presidential election, abortion, and the Affordable Care Act. But a new study of her past rulings as a federal judge offer some guidance as to what sort of Supreme Court justice she would make and the results are bad news for workers, immigrants, and consumers.
