Is Joe Biden going to pack the court? It sure seems so. The Democratic presidential nominee released a video clip on Thursday morning revealing he will create a national commission of “constitutional scholars” to help reform the current court system, which no doubt is a response to President Trump nominating Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court during an election year. Biden court-packing
The statement delivered by the former vice president comes after he has repeatedly refused to answer questions about his position concerning court-packing. A lot of folks on the left support this measure as a way to stack the bench with liberal judges so they can pretty much have free reign.
He told Norah O’Donnell in a 60 Minutes interview (see the video below):
“If elected, what I will do is I’ll put together a national commission of bipartisan commission of scholars, constitutional scholars, Democrats, Republicans, liberal, conservative. And I will ask them to over 180 days come back to me with recommendations as to how to reform the court system because it’s getting out of whack, the way in which it’s being handled. And it’s not about court-packing. There’s a number of other things that our constitutional scholars have debated and I’d look to see what recommendations that commission might make”
Did SCOTUS make the right decision on medical mandates for large businesses?
Per the Daily Wire:
Biden’s statement comes as he has refused to state whether he supports packing the courts and has stated that voters do not deserve to know if he will do so.
Top Democrats such as Sen. Mazie Hirono (HI) have stated that court-packing is an option when it comes to what Democrats claim is “court reform.”
CBS News asked the former vice president if this proposed national commission would “study this issue about whether to pack the court.” Biden responded by saying, “No, whether — there’s a number of alternatives that are — go well beyond packing.”
He was then asked if this was a “live ball.” Biden said, “Oh, it’s a live ball. No, it is a live ball.”
“We’re going to have to do that. And you’re going to find there’s a lot of conservative constitutional scholars who are saying it, as well,” the Democratic presidential nominee said. “The last thing we need to do is turn the Supreme Court into just a political football, whoever has the most votes gets whatever they want. Presidents come and go. Supreme Court justices stay for generations.”
I guess the radical left in this country really doesn’t care about the fact that the vast majority of Americans, on both sides of the aisle, are totally opposed to court-packing and fiddling with the judicial branch at all.
It’s all about what can guarantee them the most power so they can inflict as much damage as possible on our great nation and transform it into something unrecognizable.
Here’s the truth the forme SCHMOTUS won’t admit. His proposed “commission” will disappear the day after he is (God-forbid) elected President. This suggestion is just another way to do what he has been doing since the issue came up—avoid answering.
His far-left Democratic Party handlers will force him to pack the court, but he can’t admit it yet because Americans don’t want court-packing.
In a recent New York Times and Siena College poll (Oct 15-18) 58% of voters replied that Democrats should not look to increase the size of the Supreme Court. Only 31% said they were in favor of court-packing, while 11% of responders were undecided.
The leftist Democrats want court-packing as it is a way to totally destroy the American Republic.
