The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday advanced the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, with all 12 Republicans voting yes and all 10 Democrats boycotting. The nomination now goes to the full Senate for a vote still to be scheduled by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The Democrats filled their empty seats with posters of people who risk losing their health insurance if the Affordable Care Act is dismantled, which they said could happen if Barrett joins other conservative justices in overturning the 2010 law.
