Many Senate Democrats wanted to wait until after hearing directly from Gorsuch before revealing whether they’d support a filibuster. What we know about Gorsuch gives Senate Democrats more than enough reasons to block his appointment:
– He defended Bush-Era torture policies while at the Justice Department
– He claims that he’s a “fair judge,” but he sided with corporations in 91% of pension cases
– Gorsuch sided with religious employers seeking to limit their employees’ rights to birth  control coverage in the lower court decision in Hobby Lobby
– Ruled against the needs of an autistic child in public education–a ruling overturned by the current Supreme Court.
– Was a choice pick of the bigoted extremists and the far-right. Trump own administration hailed him as having “the vision of Donald Trump.”


REJECT Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch
posted – March 17, 2017
Now more than ever, we need an independent Supreme Court that stops abuses of power and protects our rights. Trump’s “Yes Man” must not be confirmed to the Supreme Court.
Call Senator Dianne Feinstein at (202) 224-3841
Demand that she use every tool—including a possible filibuster—to keep Gorsuch off of the highest court.
Sample script:
    Hi, my name is [ ] from 92037 in La Jolla. Defend the Supreme Court from Trump’s extremism. Do not vote to confirm Neil Gorsuch or for cloture to end a filibuster of his confirmation. Thank you for your time.
