"This, too, is about taking something away", Lee said, referring to Democrats' plan to highlight what they see as a likelihood that Kavanaugh might vote to essentially dismantle ACA or upend abortion rights in some fashion, either by voting to overturn Roe v.

As part of that strategy, Democrats are focusing on Republicans Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who both helped doom the repeal of the health care law. "[Republicans'] new strategy is to use the court system to invalidate the protections in the law for people with pre-existing conditions", Murphy said. "We call it an attempt to bork the nominee", McConnell said. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md. "We need leaders out there to fight this nominee and win".
"Judge Kavanaugh's nomination presents an emergency - for democratic life, for our safety and freedom, for the future of our country", the letter reads.
