July 13: The Supreme Court is supposed to protect the fundamental rights of all Americans, and I believe Judge Kavanaugh’s judicial record shows that he will put the needs of special interests and large corporations ahead of the American people. I’m deeply troubled by his efforts to undermine workers’ rights and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which will only further stack the deck against hardworking middle class families who are struggling to make ends meet. His judicial opinions against the Affordable Care Act threaten a woman’s right to control her own health care decisions, and risk limiting health care access for millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions. He has ruled against clean air protections, which risks environmental and public health and undermines our economic competitiveness. Coupled with his dissent in favor of striking down net neutrality, these positions put small businesses that are striving to succeed at a serious disadvantage to wealthy multinational corporations. Families and businesses in Michigan rely on these hard-won rights and protections. Given Judge Kavanaugh’s clear record of placing corporate interests before the rights of Michiganders, I will oppose his nomination. (

July 10: Certainly, I have some immediate concerns. I’m concerned about some of his opinions on environmental issues — clean air, clean water issues, particularly given the crisis in Flint...He’s not been very open to allowing the Environmental Protection Agency to put in protections. With the upcoming updates to the Lead and Copper Rule, I'm concerned about what that may mean to protect populations from contamination. (The Detroit News)
