Kamala Harris, who returned from the campaign trail to the Senate to cast her “no” vote against Barrett’s confirmation, said, “Republicans denied the will of the American people by confirming a supreme court justice.”
She noted that this confirmation will likely help Republicans win a legal challenge to the Affordable Care Act, in a case the supreme court is scheduled to hear shortly after election day.
“We won’t forget this,” she said, echoing the words of senate minority leader Chuck Schumer, who spoke prior to the confirmation vote.

Today Republicans denied the will of the American people by confirming a Supreme Court justice through an illegitimate process—all in their effort to gut the Affordable Care Act and strip health care from millions with pre-existing conditions.
We won’t forget this.
