Wait for a Supreme Court nominee and push for Mass. tax cuts top weekly news review
President Biden is about to fulfill a major campaign promise. In response to the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer at the end of the current term, the president has indicated he will nominate a successor in the next few weeks.
“While I’ve been studying candidates’ backgrounds and writings, I’ve made no decision except one. The person I will nominate will be someone of extraordinary qualifications, character, experience, and integrity. And that person will be the first Black woman ever nominated to the United States Supreme Court. It’s long overdue, in my opinion,” Biden said Thursday.
