As you can see from the two tweets below posted by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez within moments of Justice Amy Coney Barrett being confirmed yesterday, the hard-left of the Democrat Party will demand that Joe Biden expand and pack the U.S. Supreme Court if he and Kamala Harris are elected next week.
In fact, even prior to the vote that confirmed Justice Barrett, Senator Charles Schumer announced in all-but-certain terms during his floor speech that the next time the Democrats hold the majority all the traditional Senate rules will be cast aside.
That means, like the House of Representatives, a straight majority vote will decide all legislation and proceedings instead of some actions requiring super-majorities.
That would completely change the traditional American character of the Senate and what has made it a unique legislative body that has been respected around the world.
So, in case there was any doubt, it’s now clear that the Democrats plan on expanding the Supreme Court in order to overwhelm the conservative majority put in place in a lawful and constitutional manner by President Trump.
Please share your opinion in the Comment section.
Republicans do this because they don’t believe Dems have the stones to play hardball like they do. And for a long time they’ve been correct. But do not let them bully the public into thinking their bulldozing is normal but a response isn’t. There is a legal process for expansion.
