July 27: U.S. Sens. Ron Wyden and Maria Cantwell on Friday warned that President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh could roll back protections for people with preexisting conditions. “We’re faced with the very real threat of going backward,” Wyden, a Democrat and the senior Oregon senator said at a news conference at Oregon Health & Science University. “We feel very strongly that if you’re going to try to do it through the back door, through the judicial system, by putting a hostile new judge on the Supreme Court, we’re going to fight it.”...“If you battle depression, this nomination threatens your health,” Wyden said. “If you have given birth to a child, this nomination threatens your care ... We think senators are going to find it impossible to defend Judge Kavanaugh’s hostility to this act.” (Portland Business Journal)

July 19: I mean, look, we're just getting started. [Kavanaugh] had a long history with the Bush administration. [Sen.] Rand Paul [R-Ky.] has said he's undecided on Kavanaugh because of his privacy views. Sen. Paul and I talk often about these issues. I've pointed out that the Kavanaugh record on liberty questions is right out of the Big Brother playbook. We've got a long way to go on that. (Willamette Week)

July 9: Tonight the president begins a forced march back to the days when women’s health care choices were made by government. There can be no mistaking Trump’s Supreme Court nomination for anything but what it is: a direct attempt to overturn Roe v. Wade. American women could lose the right to chart the courses of their own lives, finding their futures are determined by the whims of fanatical state legislators and the availability of contraception. Make no mistake: we will not go back to those days. (
