After listening to Ed Markey, these fuckers are not even trying to hide the fact that they want 4 liberal justices added.

We have to fight these bastards with every fiber of our being!

When the Dirty Democrats have to Pack the Court, it is an admission that they have failed.
It is an admission that they cannot win fairly.
It is admission that they cannot govern inside the bounds of the constitution.
It is an admission that they are totally corrupt and completely lawless.
When Corrupt Extremist get in control they always change the rules to stay in power permanently.(note venezuela)
Schumer is a dangerously corrupt extremist.

Justice Stephen Breyer is warning Democrats against “packing” the Supreme Court as a way to undo the current conservative majority.

Breyer, the longest-serving of three Democrat-nominated justices, aired his views shortly before President Biden on Friday announced a 36-member commission to study the issue.

Breyer, 82, denounced the idea during a webcast lecture for Harvard Law School on Thursday, saying that it could undermine “the trust that the court has gradually built.”

“What I’m trying to do is to make those whose instincts may favor important structural change or other similar institutional changes such as forms of court packing to think long and hard before they embody those changes in law,” Breyer said.

It is going to undermine the trust. No term limits on SCOTUS either. Stop politicizing the damn courts. you are doing damage that can't be repaired.
Just let them hand down some overly broad and unpopular partisan decision overturning what has been considered settled law and it very well may happen.

Then, when the GOP takes over...what happens ?

You've lost the court.

If you lose the court, the government is no longer trustworthy (almost there anyway).

Go ahead.....start down that path.

Stealing the election and then filling the Supreme Court with dumbass Libtards that have no appreciation of the Bill of Rights is how the Democrats go about making the US a Socialist shithole.

Not that much different than Leftest takeovers we have seen in other countries.

It is funny that Mitch the republican blocked Obama's nomination to the Supreme court on the excuse of let the people decide in the election. 4 years later when Trump had a couple of months left, he pushed the vote to install the nominee. Was that stacking the courts based on political ideology?

now repubs are complaining that the Demos are packing the court. Something that they do also.

Well Congress has the power to raise the number of court members. Personally I would love to see each party to have a select number of 5 each. Yeah there would be some dead locked but it will just take one to raise about the fray and make an impartial decision.
There are STILL 9. Do the math ,Nimrod.

Thank you for proving a point.
What point? That the President picks REPLACEMENTS with the SENATES Approval?--Simple question for your simple mind. Did Trump try to INCREASE the number of Justices to suit his agenda? He could have ,ya know.


The issues which you seem to talk over , around, and dismiss is how the Senate run by Mitchell denied Obama based on upcoming elections and quickly approval Trump nomination when there was an upcoming election with the next month. Address that if your able to. I know that you can't.

Simple question did Mitch lie in order to stack the court? If you can't answer that one, do not worry because it is obvious.

Because progressive dictatorships don't care what the public thinks

Intelligent Citizens know that the Democrats are completely dishonest and totally corrupt.
Schumer's far left extremist agenda to pack the court is an admission that the Democrats can't win without lying and cheating.

The Democrats proposed today expanding the U.S. Supreme Court by four justices. Obvious the goal being to pack the Supreme Court with four Biden nominees which one could assume would compensate for the two extra justices that President Trump managed to appoint.

While it might seem like this is an all or nothing proposal, it can be tweeked to become a viable compromise.

1) Expand the court by two justices effective in 2022. This gives President Biden and the liberals a guaranteed two Supreme Court seats to fill.

2) Expand the court by another two justices effective in 2025. This would mean that although it is possible that Biden would have two more justices to appoint, it is equally possible a Republican president would get to fill those seats. Or that even if Biden (or another Democrat) was president in 2025, that the GOP might control the Senate giving the GOP input into the filling of the seats.

While expanding the court is NOT my preference, I think this shows that even on the most difficult issue, compromise is doable.

Opinions?

Why not just expand the court to 1000 justices? Wouldnt that represent the census of the people? How about 1 million? 5 million?

Did Mitch violate any Senate rule? No?

Then why are you whining?

Once again the Dimwinger party ignores the will of America and acts in the interest of party over country.


Doesn't matter to Democrats; over 80% opposed NAFTA, and serial rapist Bill Clinton couldn't wait to sign that bill.
