Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson will help guide Court toward health care justice
Washington DC- Families USA executive director Frederick Isasi issued the following statement today on the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court.
“By nominating and confirming Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, President Biden and the United States Senate have taken an incredibly important step towards ensuring our highest court in the land will be guided by Judge Jackson’s brilliance and fairness as well as ensuring the Court reflects the diversity of experiences of our nation. Justice Brown is critical to ensuring our constitution and highest court in the land work for everyone in America, regardless of where they are from, how much money they have, or the color of their skin.
“The Supreme Court has held an important role in determining whether we can fulfill the promise that everyone can live their healthiest life. Judge Jackson’s dedication to ensuring our health and well-being is borne out through her previous decisions, and her commitment to fairness and equal justice for all is exactly what the highest court in America needs.
“Unfortunately too many politicians are making the basic need of every family to live a healthy life hyper-political and using the courts to push their ideological agenda. Once Judge Jackson becomes Justice Jackson, she will inevitably be called on to make important decisions and we will be lucky to have her on the bench. Judge Jackson is a powerful voice for a future where our health does not depend on our wealth and health care laws are applied fairly to all.”
