Hold them to their words. Here are quotes for your calls and letters:2016, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas): “It has been 80 years since a Supreme Court vacancy was nominated and confirmed in an election year. There is a long tradition that you don’t do this in an election year.” 2018, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.): “If an opening comes in the last year of President Trump’s term, and the primary process has started, we’ll wait to the next election.”2016, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.): “I don’t think we should be moving on a nominee in the last year of this president’s term - I would say that if it was a Republican president.”2016, Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.): “The very balance of our nation’s highest court is in serious jeopardy. As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I will do everything in my power to encourage the president and Senate leadership not to start this process until we hear from the American people.”2016, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa): “A lifetime appointment that could dramatically impact individual freedoms and change the direction of the court for at least a generation is too important to get bogged down in politics. The American people shouldn’t be denied a voice.” 2016, Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.): “The campaign is already under way. It is essential to the institution of the Senate and to the very health of our republic to not launch our nation into a partisan, divisive confirmation battle during the very same time the American people are casting their ballots to elect our next president.”2016, Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.): “In this election year, the American people will have an opportunity to have their say in the future direction of our country. For this reason, I believe the vacancy left open by Justice Antonin Scalia should not be filled until there is a new president.” 2016, Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.): “The Senate should not confirm a new Supreme Court justice until we have a new president.”2016, Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Col.): “I think we’re too close to the election. The president who is elected in November should be the one who makes this decision.”2016, Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio): “I believe the best thing for the country is to trust the American people to weigh in on who should make a lifetime appointment that could reshape the Supreme Court for generations. This wouldn’t be unusual. It is common practice for the Senate to stop acting on lifetime appointments during the last year of a presidential term, and it’s been nearly 80 years since any president was permitted to immediately fill a vacancy that arose in a presidential election year.”2016, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.): “I strongly agree that the American people should decide the future direction of the Supreme Court by their votes for president and the majority party in the U.S. Senate.” ...

This is perfect thank you

They don’t care 😡

They are a bunch of liars, just care about power.

Posted @withregram • @huffpost Solemn crowds gathered outside the Supreme Court building in Washington to pay tribute to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg after her death Friday at the age of 87.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Hundreds or more came together at the courthouse to comfort one another in a candlelight vigil — laying flowers, signs and messages, and crying, applauding and chanting: “Vote him out.” They periodically sang “Amazing Grace” and “This Land Is Your Land.”⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Flags were flying at half-staff to honor the justice who served 27 years in the Supreme Court.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
People were sad — as well as fearful about what will happen now on the court and in the nation.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
“Who is going to take care of us?” local resident Elizabeth LaBerge had just asked her fiance, she told the Washington Post. “It just feels like such a deep loss at this particular time,” she added. “It’s a lot to put on a woman of her age to keep us safe and functioning as a constitutional democracy.”⁠⠀#womenforprogress
⁠⠀
The gathering was disrupted for a few minutes when rightwing provocateur Jacob Wohl began shouting into a microphone that “Roe v. Wade is getting abolished. RBG is dead. We’re going to have a new justice next week,” he added. He left after he was confronted by angry members of the crowd.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
In downtown Manhattan an image of Ginsburg with the message “Rest in Power” was projected onto the front of the New York State Civil Supreme Court building. The message also changed to “Thank You” and “Notorious.”⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Hundreds of San Franciscans also gathered in the Castro district to honor Notorious RGB, a champion of LGBTQ rights.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
“People came out because they wanted community.” Alex U. Inn, one of the organizers of the event, told the San Francisco Chronicle. He said that Ginsburg “saved our transgender community” with her final vote. He was referring to a surprise majority decision in June by the court in Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia that employers can’t fire workers for being gay or transgender.⁠⠀
