MAP VETO: Gov. Tom Wolf has vetoed a congressional map sent to him by Republican lawmakers, leaving the monumental job of picking Pennsylvania’s next district lines to the state courts. In his veto message, Wolf said the map failed “the test of fundamental fairness.” Commonwealth Court will pick the new map from one of these submissions. The ruling could then be appealed to the state’s Supreme Court. https://www.spotlightpa.org/news/2022/01/pennsylvania-redistricting-congressional-map-veto/?mc_cid=de4a2d9346&mc_eid=1d6b673a65
#PaVoterCourtWatchCOVID-19 has killed over 90,000 Americans and over 1.5 million are sick, but Donald Trump and Senate Republicans are hell-bent on confirming judges to lifetime appointments where they could deal a deadly blow to the health care of millions. Cory Wilson is a long-time Republican activist who served in the Mississippi state legislature. He has called the Affordable Care Act “illegitimate” & “perverse,” and has openly called on the Supreme Court to overrule it. He also has been hostile to Roe v. Wade, and has a history of advocating harsh voter suppression measures in Mississippi. Justin Walker is a former intern to #MoscowMitch, who has been on the federal courts for less than a year and has zero trial experience. But he made over 100 appearances on Fox News, and blasted the Supreme Court decision upholding Obamacare as “indefensible.” Now, Trump wants to put him on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals—the 2nd highest court in the land. At a time when the U.S. Senate needs to provide real relief during the COVID-19 pandemic, they cannot confirm more judges who will threaten our health care & other progressive values. We need you to contact your senator, and urge a NO vote on both Wilson & Walker.https://www.dailykos.com/campaigns/letters/sign-and-send-the-petition-to-your-us-senators-block-these-extreme-judges-who-directly-threaten-our-health-care?detail=emailaction&link_id=2&can_id=fbee3628a05de646339348b102b00213&source=email-firstname-default-friend-call-your-senators-today-reject-two-lifetime-judges-2&email_referrer=email_810700&email_subject=statefull-default-state-calls-needed-reject-two-judges-who-are-hostile-to-the-affordable-care-act
