Is 8 enough? Court vacancy could roil possible election case

  Is 8 enough? Court vacancy could roil possible election case WASHINGTON (AP) — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death has left the Supreme Court shorthanded during a polarizing presidential campaign in which President Donald Trump has already suggested he may not accept the outcome and the court could be called on to step in and decide the fate of the nation. It's the second time in four years that a justice has died during an election year, though that eight-justice court was not asked to referee any election disputes in 2016. Today, both sides have armies of lawyers ready to take the outcome to court.

"President Trump just admitted his nominee will strike down the Affordable Care Act," Schumer tweeted immdiately in response.

Senate Democrats are seeking to focus their arguments about the court and the election about the Affordable Care Act, former President Obama's signature law

The Supreme Court is set to consider a challenge to the law immediately after the election.

Senate Democrats have highlighted Barrett's judicial record to argue that, if confirmed, she will rule in favor of the Trump administration's lawsuit seeking to eliminate the health care law.

On "Fox News Sunday," Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) pointed to her past criticism of high court rulings upholding the ACA's provisions and said she would vote against the nomination based on that.

"It's very clear from her writings, multiple writings, that she will be the vote that takes away health care for millions of Americans, including 130 million people and counting with pre-existing conditions, and of course those are going up every day because of the health pandemic," Stabenow said.

Republicans have said it would be a mistake to focus on Comey Barrett's parks remarks to try to guess how she would decide on a specific case.

The remarks from Democrats on Sunday suggest healthcare will be a dominant part of the conversation as the Senate GOP seeks to confirm Coney Barrett before Election Day.

The lawsuit against the ACA would undo the entirety of its provisions, including protection of coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.

Trump has signed an executive order declaring pre-existing condition protections the "policy" of the United States, but has repeatedly pledged a full legislative replacement for the ACA that has yet to materialize.
