DNC on Confirmation of Chad Readler

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after Senate Republicans voted to confirm Judge Chad Readler to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals:


“A vote for Chad Readler is a vote to take away protections for people with pre-existing conditions. It’s as simple as that. Republicans have shown their true colors: They’ve confirmed a judge who has a long and disturbing record of attacking people’s health care, voting rights, and civil rights. He’ll drag us backwards on every issue – from criminal justice and consumer protection to LGBTQ rights and the treatment of immigrants. Voters will not forget this betrayal next November. They know that Democrats are the only party that has their back and will fight for the health care they deserve.”
