Report: McSally Puts Party Over People On Anti-Health Care Judges
PHOENIX — According to a new report from the Arizona Mirror, U.S. Sen. Martha McSally‘s voting record reveals that she’s an uncompromising “party loyalist” and not an independent leader who puts Arizona first.
A Mirror analysis found that McSally “has voted for every [Donald Trump] judicial nominee who has received an up-or-down vote on the Senate floor” — voting to give even the most anti-health care and anti-choice nominees lifetime appointments on the federal bench.
It’s no surprise, considering McSally’s record of voting
- “Halfway through her first year in the U.S. Senate, Arizona Republican Martha McSally is proving to be what she campaigned as last year: a party loyalist”
- “Since taking office in January, McSally […] has voted for every judicial nominee who has received an up-or-down vote on the Senate floor”
- “That brings [McSally’s] total votes for President Trump’s nominees to district and circuit courts to 39, a streak that Democrats are already using against her in their effort to deny her a full term in 2020.”
- “Democrats are also using [McSally’s] record on judges to paint her as a threat to health care. To do so, they are pointing to her votes for judges like Matthew Kacsmaryk, now on the Northern District Court of Texas; Michael Truncale of the Eastern District Court of Texas; and Howard Nielson of the District Court of Utah.”
