Sanders on Gorsuch: ‘I Cannot Support a Man with His Views for a Lifetime Seat’

‘Mr. President, I rise today to oppose the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court of the United States’

EXCERPT:

SANDERS: "Mr. President, I rise today to oppose the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court of the United States. After meeting with Judge Gorsuch and having a long and pleasant conversation, after hearing his testimony before the Judiciary Committee and after carefully reviewing his record, I have concluded that I cannot support a man with his views for a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is the most important judicial body in this country."
