The Senate Judiciary Committee meets this week to begin hearings on the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. 


Illinois’ Senior US Senator Dick Durbin, a committee member, says one of the key reasons Republicans are rushing to nominate a judge is a November 10th hearing on the Affordable Care Act. Durbin says if the ACA is struck down healthcare for millions will never be the same.



Durbin says the rush to confirm Judge Barrett could result in insurance companies setting lifetime limits on health care costs and not covering children up to the age of 26 on family plans.
