Today some House and Senate Democrats, including Sen. Ed Markey and Rep. Jerrold Nadler, announced a bill that would add four justices to the Supreme Court. According to Rep. Nadler, it wouldn’t constitute “packing the court” but rather “unpacking the court.” Yeah, nobody believes that.
In any case, Democrats tried to make it seem that changing the number of seats on the Supreme Court isn’t uncommon, pointing out that it’s been done seven times in the nation’s history.
Sen. Markey debuts bill to expand the Supreme Court: ’We are here today because the U.S. Supreme Court is broken. It is out of balance and it needs to be fixed … the court is broken because Leader Mitch McConnell, his Senate Republican colleagues, and Donald Trump broke it.’ pic.twitter.com/psdGev2JWC
