Sen. Gillibrand Comes Out Against Judge Neil Gorsuch

February 1, 2017

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand today issued the following statement on President Donald J. Trump’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court:

“All branches of the federal government should stand on the side of the citizens they were created to serve. The Supreme Court is supposed to be the ultimate arbiter of justice for our citizens. Unfortunately, Judge Gorsuch has proven to have a judicial philosophy outside of the mainstream and time and again has subjugated individual rights to those of corporations. I fundamentally disagree with his ruling that a boss should be able to make family planning decisions for an employee and that corporations are people. I plan to stand up for individuals over corporations and oppose his nomination, and I will insist that his nomination meet a traditional 60 vote threshold.”
