Peter Roskam Rubber Stamps Judge Kavanaugh, No Time for Resident Feedback

(Downers Grove, IL) July 10, 2018 – 6th District Congressional Candidate Sean Casten responded to Representative Peter Roskam’s hasty approval of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the lifetime appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court:

“I am disappointed, but not surprised, that Peter Roskam already has decided that Brett Kavanaugh deserves to sit on the Supreme Court. Peter Roskam’s not interested in the Senate hearings and what Judge Kavanaugh has to say — just as Peter Roskam’s not interested in hearing from his own constituents. This is another example of how Peter Roskam’s driven by ideology, not by facts, similar to when he didn’t wait for the Congressional Budget Office to evaluate the cost or impact of repealing the Affordable Care Act.”

“Once again he is quickly siding with whatever President Trump wants, just like the 94 percent of the time he’s voted with him. Our district needs an independent ‘check’ on the President, not a rubber-stamp.”
