McConnell: ‘Nobody’s going to beat’ Murkowski

By eliminating Medicare as a program for seniors, and outlawing the ability of Americans to enroll in private and employer-based plans, the Democratic plan would inevitably lead to the massive rationing of health care.

"If I'm chairman, they won't take it up", Grassley said, referring to a possible 2020 nomination in a Tuesday interview with Fox News.

"Although the Senate confirmation process tested me, as it has tested others, it did not change me". That process is over.

"Dr. Blasey Ford knows I kept her confidence, she and her lawyers said so repeatedly".

The party in power usually loses seats in midterm elections because satisfied voters become complacent. Justice Samuel Alito spoke at his swearing-in as well.

Kavanaugh is the second justice Trump has successfully nominated to the Supreme Court, following the confirmation past year of Neil Gorsuch to the seat left by the late Antonin Scalia.

Murkowski bucked her party and voted against advancing Kavanaugh's nomination. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, for her vote to block Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has no plans to oppose her if she runs for re-election in 2022. "That is who I am".

Trump sees his success in getting Kavanaugh onto the court - tilting the crucial body to the right for potentially years to come - as one of the major successes of his turbulent two-year administration.

"It was all made up, it was fabricated and it's a disgrace", he said. "Disgusting statements that were totally untrue that he knew nothing about".

"It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people that are evil".

Kyle Kondik, managing editor of the University of Virginia's election-prognosticating Sabato's Crystal Ball, said that Trump's appearance here isn't likely to have much of an effect on the outcome of the three House races.

His ascent to the court was sealed by a 50-48 Senate vote on Saturday. It capped a fight that seized the national conversation after claims emerged that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted women three decades ago. He has denied the allegations. Only one Democrat voted for Trump's nominee. "And a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent", Kavanaugh said.

Kavanaugh says all four of the clerks who will work for him at the high court are women. Yet Kavanaugh is joining under a cloud. "And the numbers are being backed up by high fundraising dollars, small online donors, they really are energized to win the majorities, keep those majorities in November".

"That episode, if it occurs, would be in the portion of the government we haven't funded", he said.

US Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh looks at his daughter Liza as his wife Ashley and daughter Margaret and US President Donald Trump look on, during his ceremonial public swearing-in at the White House on Monday. McConnell called the current partisan divide a "low point", but he blamed Democrats. He noted that Murkowski won election on write-in votes in 2010 and said, "She's about as strong as you can possibly be in Alaska".

The White House has yet to comment on the United Nations report.
