FPI / October 15, 2020 Commentary by John McNabb This morning I am watching Democrat senators attack Judge Barrett. Accusing her and seeking to diminish her by presuming to know that she will vote to end the ACA. What a demeaning gut shot to condemn her for something in the future. What arrogance and audacity […]Read More
