Democrats Plan To Pack The Supreme Court
« on: April 14, 2021, 09:32:00 PM »
Democrats are planning legislation to expand the Supreme Court from 9 to 13 justices, the Intercept reported.

The bill is being sponsored in the Senate by Ed Markey and in the House by Jerry Nadler, Mondaire Jones and Hank Johnson.

The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13, from the current 9. The number of justices on the Court has fluctuated widely throughout the course of the nation’s history. Republicans currently hold 6 seats, while Democrats hold just 3 after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the quick confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

Why would they need a bill to expand it? There's no law currently that it has to be 9

Jerry Nadler “we're not packing the court, we’re unpacking it.” ;D

Correct.
The progressive left believe that they will stay in power until the end of times.

Which essentially makes it unconstitutional because gone is the checks and balances.

Would you believe the same, if the Democrats had a majority in the senate?
