Biden links the pandemic with the decision on Supreme before the elections

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Sunday linked the COVID-19 pandemic with the possible confirmation of the candidate that US President Donald Trump appoints to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court, in an attempt to return to put the focus of the electoral debate on the president’s management of the health crisis.

Biden warned today in a speech in Philadelphia that the health coverage of many Americans could be in jeopardy if the president succeeds in placing his future nominee on the Supreme Court.

Addressing American voters he stated: “As I speak we are surpassing 200,000 deaths from this virus, tens of millions of Americans are unemployed, health care in this country is at stake in this court and now in an abrupt political movement this president and the Republican leader (Mitch McConnell) have decided to force a lifetime appointment before the US Supreme Court in the Senate ”.

“It’s the last thing we need now,” lamented the former vice president of Barack Obama (2009-2017).

Biden was referring to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, a favorite target of Trump, who during his 2016 election campaign promised that “immediately and from day one” of his presidency he would repeal that legislation. and he would replace it with a better, cheaper program that, according to him, would cover all Americans.

During these years, Republicans have filed numerous lawsuits in court against various aspects of the law.

Precisely, a week after the November general elections, the Supreme Court is expected to study the future of Obamacare, which a coalition of states in the hands of Republicans hopes to revoke, including one of its clauses that requires insurers to cover previous illnesses of the insured.

Biden assured that “Donald Trump is before the Supreme Court trying to snatch health coverage from tens of thousands of families; snatch peace of mind from more than 100 million Americans with prior illnesses. If insurance succeeds again, they will discriminate or remove all coverage from people with previous illnesses such as asthma, diabetes, cancer and many other problems ”.

“And perhaps, the cruelest of all is that if Trump succeeds (they will remove the coverage) due to complications from COVID-19,” he predicted.

The US is the country most affected by the pandemic with more than 6.7 million confirmed cases and almost 200,000 deaths, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

Until now, the health and economic crisis caused by the coronavirus, and the management by the federal government, had been the main theme of the electoral campaign, but the death of progressive Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday at age 87 it has diverted the focus to the future of this court.

Appealing to the republican conscience

On Saturday, Trump announced his intention to name his replacement next week, possibly a woman, after Republican Majority Leader in the Upper House, Mitch McConnell, promised that he would put the president’s nominee to a vote in the chamber.

Under Ginsburg, the Supreme Court had five conservative and four progressive justices, so if Trump succeeds in confirming his nominee, it would further underpin the conservative dominance, which could last decades and make far-reaching decisions on issues such as abortion or immigration, fundamental for your voter base.

The judges of that court are appointed by the president and confirmed in the Senate. Faced with McConnell’s decision to hold a vote in the chamber before the elections, Biden appealed this Sunday to the consciences of Republican senators not to allow it.
