I just heard a Republican U.S. senator from Maine make a preposterous declaration.
Susan Collins is going to be at Ground Zero in the debate over whether to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. The battle lines are being drawn.
It’s along abortion and whether Kavanaugh would uphold the Roe v. Wade decision that in 1973 made abortion legal in the United States.
Collins already has said that she cannot support a SCOTUS nominee who doesn’t believe Roe v. Wade is “settled law.”
Then today she said that her vote “doesn’t count any more than my 99 colleagues” in the Senate.
Wrong, senator! Given the stakes and the apparent lineup that’s taking shape in the Senate, your vote counts more.
It counts a lot more!
