Report: Democrats To Unveil Court-Packing Bill; Expands Supreme Court To 13

Must read

Democrats have a plan

Nancy Pelosi and her squad plan to unveil a new bill Thursday in an attempt to increase the number of Supreme Court justices from nine to thirteen. Guess what… Joe Biden and the Democrat-controlled Senate will be filling the new vacancies. So predictable…

The Intercept released a full report Wednesday evening:

“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 9. …

The bill is led by House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, Subcommittee chair Hank Johnson, and freshman Rep. Mondaire Jones.

In the Senate, the bill is being championed by Ed Markey of Massachusetts.”

The new bill comes a few days after the president inked an executive order to create a commission to study the question of whether the SCOTUS should be expanded. Partisan Democrats are in charge of the commission. Of course. Well, Left-wing Democrats have warned that the commission may “thwart” their planned changes rather than improving them.

Democrats started talking about the potential expansion after Justice Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed a couple of years ago. Biden didn’t like the idea at first but changed his mind. On multiple occasions. He always does that. The President didn’t reveal his position until the 2002 presidential campaign. He did that after Justice Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed and he proposed a commission.

Liberal justices have now a chance to get a nominal 7-6 majority. Congress can change the size of the SCOTUS without a constitutional amendment. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the last president to make such an effort and his own party stopped him.

Historians say this was a huge power grab. The move convinced the Supreme Court to “stop striking down” the New Deal legislation and to approve the growth of government powers.
