Scott Walker doubles down on support for extremist Supreme Court pick
Kavanaugh was selected by President Trump because he would be in favor of overturning Roe v. Wade.
“Walker has spent his career attacking Wisconsinites’ health care options, so it only makes sense that he supports someone who would do the same on the Supreme Court,” said Martha Laning, chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. “The far-right agenda that Kavanaugh and Walker ascribe to will only bring pain and hardship for the people of Wisconsin.”
Kavanaugh was selected by President Trump because he would be in favor of overturning Roe v. Wade. Scott Walker, meanwhile, has signed into law several pieces of legislation that severely limit a woman’s right to obtain an abortion in Wisconsin, including a 20-week ban with no exceptions for rape or incest. Kavanaugh’s past record and rhetoric suggest that he would be a threat to the future of the Affordable Care Act.
Scott Walker greenlit Brad Schimel’s lawsuit which would repeal the ACA, sabotaging health care access for 850,000 Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions.
