Amy Coney Barrett Confirmation Hearing Time, Schedule and Where to Watch

  Amy Coney Barrett Confirmation Hearing Time, Schedule and Where to Watch Coney Barrett has been nominated to replace Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg who passed away in September. According to the Committee on the Judiciary, Coney Barrett will speak at 9:00 a.m. local time in Washington, D.C. She can be watched live on the Judiciary's website at this time.

Beginning at roughly 9 a.m. ET, each senator will take their turns grilling Barrett over issues that will likely be related to her background, past judicial decisions, overall judicial philosophy, hot-button legal issues such as abortion or health care, or the man who nominated her, President Trump.

Looking at the first day, it appears that a major part of Democrats' strategy for opposing Barrett is her past criticism of the Supreme Court's 2012 decision that upheld the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare. One week after November's election, the Supreme Court will hear a case in which it will determine whether Obamacare is still constitutional now that there is no longer a penalty attached to the individual mandate.

Pelosi faces backlash after rejecting Trump's $1.8T economic stimulus offer

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is facing some pushback from fellow Democrats after sharply rejecting the White House's latest -- and most expensive -- $1.8 trillion coronavirus relief offer over the weekend.

"Nancy Pelosi take this deal!" Andrew Yang, a former Democratic presidential candidate, tweeted on Saturday. "Put politics aside people are hurting."

The Trump administration's proposal -- which came just a few days after the president abruptly called off negotiations before reversing course and pushing for a bipartisan agreement -- drew criticism from both Republicans and Democrats, dimming the odds of another round of emergency aid before the Nov. 3 election.

In a weekly letter to Democratic colleagues, Pelosi said the administration’s proposal lacked a “strategic plan to crush the virus” and gave President Trump too much power in determining how the funds were spent.

"This proposal amounted to one step forward, two steps back," Pelosi said in the letter.

The plan was expected to include a fresh round of $1,200 stimulus checks; expanded unemployment benefits at $400 per week and additional funding for state and local governments. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.
