After Series Of Losses, Dems Revive Their Court Packing Scheme

Democrats are now reviving their court packing scheme after a series of losses in the Supreme Court, the most recent of which was a 6-3 ruling on July 1 in favor of two GOP-passed voting laws in Arizona aimed at safeguarding election integrity.

The court’s majority opinion in the case was written by Justice Samuel Alito, who was nominated in 1990 by President George H.W. Bush. Justice Alito concluded that the two Arizona election integrity laws do not violate the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which angered many on the left.

After Donald Trump’s presidency left the court with a 6-3 majority in favor of Republican-appointed justices, the left has been calling to pack the Supreme Court with additional Democrat appointees to make it more “fair.”

In April, Democrats in Congress introduced a bill that would have expanded the Supreme court from nine to thirteen justices. Joe Biden has so far refused to answer questions about court-packing, including during a presidential debate in September of 2020 when he stated: “Whatever position I take on that, that’ll become the issue.”

Now, after suffering several Supreme Court losses, the left is becoming even more rabid about their calls to pack the court.

“Today’s ruling is another blow to voting rights,” Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey, a Democrat, wrote in a tweet. “We have no time to waste to protect the right to vote. We must abolish the filibuster and pass the For the People Act and John Lewis Voting Rights Act. And we must expand the Supreme Court.”

Georgia Democrat Rep. Hank Johnson also called for expanding the Supreme Court, along with abolishing the filibuster, passing left-wing power grab bills like HR 1 and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, and the blatantly unconstitutional leftist proposal of making Washington, D.C. a state.

“Today, the Supreme Court once again gutted the Voting Rights Act. If we don’t expand the Court soon, we will no longer have a democracy to protect. What are we waiting for?” New York Democrat Rep. Mondaire Jones tweeted.

“And still some people have the nerve to question whether Court expansion is necessary,” Jones wrote in another tweet responding to a post that accused Republican Senator Mitch McConnell of having “stolen” Supreme Court seats for former President Trump.

Just as a matter of fact, the idea that McConnell “stole” two Supreme Court seats, using the left’s logic, is incorrect. If McConnell choosing not to let former President Barack Obama to push through a nominee before the election means that he stole that Supreme Court seat, then McConnell allowing President Trump to push through a nominee before the election was not stealing a seat, and vice versa.

Regardless, neither seat was stolen, every Supreme Court nomination followed the proper procedures. The left is just angry because they lost, and because there is one branch of the government they can’t completely control.
