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 freshman 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 ten 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 Ginsberg died in September 2020, Republicans threw out the procedures they had previously embraced and confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett in a matter of weeks.

So adding enough that there could be a three way deadlock, that's intelligent.

Oh NOES!!!

Literally NOBODY saw this coming....

The complete takeover of all 3 branches of our government by Democrat fiat once they stole the White House.

It is almost like they are Marxist scumbags solidifying their power!!!

I'm sure that leftist ATS members will be in the thread soon enough to complain about how horrible our current Dick-Tater is....



But to be honest, I'm having fun watching this poop show.

Burn the whole place down as soon as you can, leftards!!!

I'm older now, but would still like to help rebuild America after you destroy it.

There will never be a deadlock.

Why not 435?

Since they want the Judicial branch to not be about their actual Constitutional powers, but how many votes it takes to legislate through the Judicial Branch...

It might as well function as a representative Democracy and not an actual Judicial branch at all.

This is how they'll end the 1st, 2nd Amendments and negate Due Process.

It's interesting to watch in the same way you can't stop watching a car crash.

I would guess because if they could add 4 Democratic votes they would hold the split at 7-6. I don't really know a lot about it though so I'm just guessing.

On this episode of This Old House, after observing too much stupidy in action. We will be tearing down and rebuilding this house by following the plan the democrats demonstrated. By any means.

This episode brought to you by Pepperidge Farm. Do you remember when our government at least pretended to be for most of the people? Pepperidge Farm remembers.

They would until they lose ground again and feel like they can't get their way on everything, and then they pack the court.

Jerry Nadler and Hank Johnson...2 of the dumbest MFers to ever hold office.
Red Adair himself couldn’t put out the Democrat dumpster fire that’s raging unchecked right now.

This is a wonderful development!

It won't go anywhere in the Senate. Need 2/3 Majority to pass.

But it will be another campaign issue that damages Democrats in 2022. Especially if Joe Biden endorses the move, after saying during the campaign that he did NOT want to pack the Supreme Court.

Biden - Court Packing is a BONEHEADED Idea: www.foxnews.com...

Did you forget that they can win elections at will because they figured out how to cheat the voting process?

Campaign issues no longer matter once you figure out how to rig the vote.

So then the Republicans gain control and add however many they need to regain control of SCOTUS. Then the dems do it again. Back and forth, over and over again. Pretty soon there will be a lottery to appoint random judges. Then winning Mt Dew bottle caps can get you a seat in the Supreme Court.

This will go over nicely.

All in....and when they lose the majority in the next election they will all pay dearly.....if this passes and they do it....it will be the end of the US government as we have known it.

We all expected this but I didn't think it would happen so soon. They will cheat to pass it through, if they even have to. The puppet masters aren't wasting time.

Sleepy creepy Joe will be rewarded with a fresh batch of innocent children to use like a scratch n sniff sticker.

I like the car crash analogy. Very fitting.
