In the first day of questioning, Amy Coney Barrett wouldn’t say whether she’d overturn Roe v Wade, or the Affordable Care Act, or much else (which is, in fairness, pretty common in this setting), but she did explain her originalist views: “I interpret its text as text, and I understand it to have the meaning that it had at the time people ratified it. So that meaning doesn’t change over time, and it’s not up to me to update it or infuse my own policy views into it … I would say that Justice Scalia was obviously a mentor and, as I said when I accepted the President’s nomination, that his philosophy is mine, too … But I want to be careful to say that if I’m confirmed, you would not be getting Justice Scalia, you would be getting Justice Barrett.” She also wouldn’t say whether a president has the power to delay an election.
