Senate Dems Lose Vote For Short-Term Health Care Plans

The Senate is the upper chamber of the US Congress

Any technical arguments are likely to be overshadowed by Kavanaugh's first public appearance wearing the traditional black robe donned by Supreme Court justices.

Trump has repeatedly said that putting conservatives on the court-Kavanaugh is his second appointment-was among the top goals of his presidency.

The Washington Examiner noted Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., has indicated the House Judiciary Committee might investigate Kavanaugh if his party retakes the majority in November and he becomes the panel's chairman.

As the newest member of the court, Kavanaugh will take on a few special jobs. Kavanaugh, in contrast, is expected to be a more decidedly conservative vote, tilting the court right for decades and leaving Roberts as the justice closest to the ideological middle.

"We've seen a 500 percent increase in our fundraising at the end of the month as tensions have been boiling over in Washington and voters have started to pay attention", Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel explained on Fox News Tuesday.

The cases challenge the types of crimes that qualify as violent felonies under that law and can lead to 15-year mandatory minimum sentences for a defendant. The cases concerned a Florida robbery conviction and burglary convictions in Tennessee and Arkansas. Before the pivotal vote, several of the women confronting lawmakers in Senate halls were revealed to be high-ranking members of activist groups funded by billionaire liberal financier George Soros.

The justices themselves have expressed concern in recent years about public perception of the court.

Trump's ceremony speech hammered a theme he has been hitting on all week: hoping to energize Republicans by attacking Democrats for opposing Kavanaugh.

Yet Murkowski, ever the ally of the Left, wavered and voted with the Democrats to stop Kavanaugh's confirmation from going forward.

"Everybody just smiled because they knew if it had been a Republican president and a Democratic Senate, they wouldn't have filled a vacancy", he said. The FBI probe into the allegations against Kavanaugh reportedly found no corroboration of the allegations against him but was criticized by Democrats for not being a full investigation.

He later wrote in a newspaper opinion piece that he regretted some of his comments.

Sen. Chuck Grassley said Tuesday he would like to see more female senators serve on the Judiciary Committee. "The Supreme Court is an institution of law". Kavanaugh said he joins the Supreme Court "with gratitude and no bitterness".

The appeals were brought by an environmental group and companies that supported the rule, which had limited hydrofluorocarbons used in a variety of products including spray cans and air conditioners.

Kavanaugh promised to be an "impartial" judge and a "team player" during his ceremonial swearing-in at the White House late on Monday. What's more, a majority of voters also say that they believe the women who accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct were telling the truth; that Kavanaugh lied about his alcohol use before the Senate; and that "his professional qualifications do not outweigh any questions about his personal conduct".

He said all four of the clerks who will work for him at the high court are women.

The two-vote margin of victory in the Senate made it the closest Supreme Court confirmation vote since 1881 - and by far the most contentious since Clarence Thomas in 1991.

Firebrand Congresswoman Maxine Waters escalated her all-out war with President Trump this week; viciously calling the Commander-in-Chief the "poster boy" for "mob protesters".
