For a second day, Judge Amy Coney Barrett took questions from Senate Judiciary Committee members on Capitol Hill on topics ranging from the Affordable Care Act to Roe v. Wade and legalization of same-sex marriage. Judge Barrett declined to give answers on how she would rule on those matters after repeated questions from Democrats. Senator Amy Klobuchar was one of those Democrats questioning Judge Barrett. She tells Anderson Cooper Judge Barrett’s record is the polar opposite of what Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg stood for her whole life.
