    Default Packing SCOTUS

    If they really try to do this, will it put us over the boiling point?

    Packing the Supreme Court is a terrible idea and always has been. President Franklin Roosevelt sought to enlarge the court simply so he could appoint a majority of the justices. He failed badly because even his own party recoiled at the naked effort to end the Constitution’s checks on his power.

    So it’s obscene that President Joe Biden is even entertaining the move now.

    Biden is appointing a commission to look into the idea, one the White House says will be “a bipartisan group of experts on the Court and the Court reform debate.” Let’s hope that’s just a bone to quiet the lefties down, not the start of something more.

    That was a rhetorical question, right?

    and no, it probably won't.

    This is some serious shit right here, if you are not pissed off as hell then you havent been paying attention.
    This will move us to a single party, socialist, totalitarian regime with NO HOPE for ever coming back to a constitutional republic.
    Scotus packed, Washington DC state 51, PR state 52, Super majority in congress, and 50 million illegals granted voting rights with no ID requirements.

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

    Which leads us to only one option in this takeover---4.19.1775

    The Constitution allows Congress to set the number of Supreme Court justices.

    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.

    The number of justices on the court, which is set by Congress, has fluctuated throughout the course of the nation’s history, reaching as many as 10 seats before settling on nine in 1869. In 2016, Sen. Ted Cruz suggested that if Hillary Clinton were elected, the Republican Senate should keep Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat empty, effectively bringing the number of justices down to eight.

    Republicans currently hold six seats, while Democrats hold just three. Republicans were able to solidify control of the court under former President Donald Trump, after first refusing to advance Merrick Garland’s nomination under former President Barack Obama and then confirming Justice Neil Gorsuch after Trump’s election. Then after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died last September, Republicans threw out the procedures they had previously embraced and confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett in a matter of weeks.

    After Trump’s nomination of Coney Barrett, then-Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer faced pressure to stop her confirmation by any means necessary. When those myriad options fell short and Coney Barrett was pushed through, the conversation turned to expanding the court.

    “Not only do these extremist judges threaten more than a century of progressive achievements,” read a letter to Schumer by 20 New York elected officials, “they threaten to foreclose the possibility of any future progress under a Democratic administration.”

    But after Democrats lost races they hoped to win in Maine, North Carolina, and Iowa, some Democratic strategists argued that the talk of court packing and ending the filibuster had inspired more Republicans to vote, and discussion of the move was shelved.

    In April, President Joe Biden created a commission to study possible reforms to the court, including adding seats. This past October, Biden promised to create such a commission if elected, saying the judicial system was “getting out of whack,” but said, “It’s not about court packing.”

    I don't understand why we need to let them destroy America first before we can fight back. But I guess it has to be that way.

    Ben Franklin was correct when comparing "protecting" freedom to the actions of a "rattlesnake".

    There's way too many things happening that have me concerned greatly.

    You need 51 Senators to do business (COTUS requirement). If this comes to the Senate, the Republicans should simply refuse to go to the Senate until it is withdrawn.

    The PROBLEM is that a quorum is assumed unless there is a roll call vote or quorum call - which the Democrats would never call for.

    Nevertheless - the Republicans should simply cease pretending to have any function and not show up if this bill is present, or after it passes.
