WATCH: Stacy Staggs raises concerns on Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court confirmation
Stacy Staggs, director of community outreach for the child medical advocacy group Little Lobbyists, testified on Oct. 15 in the final day of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing for Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

Staggs spoke about the importance of the Affordable Care Act, which Democrats worry Barrett may vote to overturn if confirmed.

"We do not need to rush through the nomination of a Supreme Court Justice who is on the record as hostile to the law that provides our health care protections," Staggs said.

The hearing came about three weeks before Election Day. The judge did not appear before the committee on the final day of the hearing. Instead, both Republicans and Democrats called outside witnesses to speak to her record and approach to the law.
