The Center for Medicare Advocacy applauds today’s confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court of the United States. We celebrate the historic significance of Judge Jackson as the first Black woman to be elevated to the Court. We also honor Judge Jackson’s distinguished career representing poor people, challenging government action, and serving as a trial court judge, all of which will bring a valuable and much-needed perspective to the Supreme Court. Judge Jackson is exceptionally qualified to serve on the country’s highest court by any standard. As an organization that works to protect the rights of older, disabled, and underserved people, the Center finds especially noteworthy her commitment to “standing up for the constitutional value of representation,” as she stated during her nomination hearing. The Center for Medicare Advocacy is thrilled that Judge Jackson will bring her brilliant and compassionate legal mind to bear as the newest associate justice.
