Her Twitter account captured some of her main points.

The ideological bent of the Supreme Court has led our country in the wrong direction—stacking the deck in favor of the wealthy and powerful.

Senator says we should wait for a new president to pick a Justice because “the American people shouldn’t be denied a voice.”

“As one of the more than 65 million Americans who voted to re-elect Barack Obama, I’d say my voice is being ignored.” —Hillary

“We chose a president—twice. Now Republicans are acting like those votes didn’t count, and isn’t still our nation’s leader.” —Hillary

“Today, I’m adding my voice to the chorus asking Senator Grassley to step up and do his job. He should hold a hearing.” —Hillary

In a single term, could demolish virtually every pillar of progressivism. This is a make-or-break moment.

The idea that money is speech turns our Constitution upside down. Wealth shouldn’t be privileged in the courts—it should have no privilege.

“If SCOTUS doesn’t overturn Citizens United, I’ll fight for a Constitutional amendment to limit influence of money in elections.” —Hillary

“I will appoint justices…who will protect a woman’s right to choose, rather than billionaires’ right to buy elections.” —Hillary

“Ask yourselves: what kind of justice would a President Trump appoint? Or for that matter, what kind of Attorney General?” —Hillary

Donald Trump didn’t come out of nowhere—what Republicans have sown with their extremist tactics, they’re now reaping with Trump’s candidacy.

At our best, America has united behind the ideal that everyone deserves a fair shot. At its best, the Supreme Court has defended that ideal.

In 1954, held that separate is not equal in our schools.

In 1973, ruled that women have the right to make intimate health decisions for ourselves.

In 1977, paved the way for public sector unions.

In 1982, ruled that undocumented children had the right to go to school.

Last June, ruled that marriage equality was the law of the land.

Add your name to tell Senate Republicans: and hold a hearing on ‘s Supreme Court nominee.
