Default House and senate democrats plan bill to add four justices to supreme court

Biden went for the Kabuki Theater, last week, by creating a commission (of Leftwing radicals) to "STUDY" court packing...

...and this far-far-far-Left idea is just too slow for some Dems...

HOUSE AND SENATE DEMOCRATS PLAN BILL TO ADD FOUR JUSTICES TO SUPREME COURT

Quote:
CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS PLAN to unveil legislation expanding the size of the Supreme Court on Thursday, according to three congressional sources familiar with the closely held measure.

The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13 from the current nine. The bill is led by House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, subcommittee Chair Hank Johnson, and first-term Rep. Mondaire Jones. In the Senate, the bill is being championed by Ed Markey of Massachusetts.

I'm curious to see how Biden responds to this. So far and to the best of my knowledge, he is silent on this specific proposed legislation.

Biden's handlers will go along with it. Can't have that bothersome SCOTUS interfering with the agenda.

I believe the left is smart enough to assume they might not be in power in two years, so we are going to see more agenda shoved down our throats.

This won't pass, but everyone needs to understand that this is a response to McConnell's unprecedented attack on the Supreme Court nomination process in 2016, not some sort of unilateral power grab by the Democrats.

Sure, we didnít want to pack the SCOTUS with radical Left wing judicial activists openly converting it into an anti Constitutional super legislature, Republicans are to blame for us burning down the Republic. Oh no the radical Leftists aren't running the Democrat party, pay no attention to President Biden appointing a committee to study SCOTUS reform only to have any pretense of deliberation trashed by zealots within the party. Candidate Biden lied to us again when he claimed to be the Democrat party or maybe Joe Brain Damage was just giving voice to his dementia again.

If anything good comes of this blatant power grab maybe Chief Justice Roberts finally understands there is no appeasing Democrat political bloodlust by selling out ridiculous decisions like redefining the Obamacare individual mandate as a tax when the Federal government didnít present that as an argument or deciding the illegal DACA XO couldn't be rolled back because President Trump was doing it or stripping marriage from state control. All his efforts to keep the SCOTUS safe from Democrats rapacious hunger for absolute power by making decisions to please them are exposed as folly.

Blah, blah, blah. The simple fact is that if McConnell had done his job and given Garland a hearing and a vote in 2016 or if he had decided to be consistent and leave the RBG seat open for the incoming president to fill, I'm almost certain that this bill would not have been introduced.

By "attack" you mean McConnell acted within the bounds of the constitutional powers granted his office?

When Obama said "Elections have consequences", they swooned...

When Mitchy-poo demonstrates it, they go into attack mode...

Well, McConnell's "attack" (LOL) was nothing but the predicted eventuality of the Dumbocrats' ORIGINAL "attack" on the federal judge approval process -- Harry Reid's "nuclear option" -- in 2013 so the Dungocrats could push through Obungholes's leftist judges into the federal courts.

Stop your disingenuous, hypocritical, pissing and moaning, it adds an additional layer of pathetic to you that is entirely unnecessary.

Lol. Allowing judicial nominees to be confirmed with majority Senate support (as contemplated by the Constitution) is not an "attack."
