Ocasio-Cortez Says Ginsburg’s Death Should ‘Radicalize’ Democrats”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has braced her supporters for a very different future than they may have expected - even if presidential nominee Joe Biden and other Democrats prevail in November.

The death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg led to an immediate escalation of the political stakes on the Democratic side, as they deal with the reality that President Donald Trump plans to nominate the third Supreme Court justice of his first term, and Democrats are powerless to stop the confirmation without Republican assistance. "But so long as we can save lives, I believe we have an obligation to do so as we build a new world", she captioned her Twitter video.

Questioned about the possible nomination of Amy Coney Barrett, an originalist and devout Catholic, Schumer said Barrett stands for "all the things that Ruth Bader Ginsburg was against". A Trump appointment puts "all of our rights, the rights that so many people died for.at risk", she continued.

Speaking to Just the News in an interview Tuesday, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez said she shares Sen. She encouraged Americans to call their senators and lawmakers to "use every procedural tool available to us to ensure we buy ourselves the time necessary". Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), another self-described socialist.

"Voting for Joe Biden is not about whether you agree with him", she said into the camera. "No president is the answer".

The congresswoman also told reporters Saturday that if Republicans are successful in confirming a conservative justice to the Supreme Court after Ginsburg's death, she suggested that Democrats will try to pack the court with more justices. Mass movements are the answer, " the pol said.

"We should leave all options on the table, including the numbers of justices that are on the Supreme Court", Ocasio-Cortez said.

McConnell blocked former President Barack Obama from being able to select a replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in February 2016, claiming it was too soon before the November election.
