President Joe Biden confirmed Republican fears that Democrats will pursue packing the Supreme Court. Biden signed an executive order creating a commission to explore options to reform the Supreme Court.
This news comes after Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, the most senior liberal justice on the court, warned Democrats against packing the Supreme Court.
The White House said in a statement issued on Friday that, “The Commission’s purpose is to provide an analysis of the principal arguments in the contemporary public debate for and against Supreme Court reform, including an appraisal of the merits and legality of particular reform proposals.”
The Biden administration knows that packing the court is an unpopular idea that will hammer Democrats hence their use of extremely vague wording in the statement.
Back in October of 2020, Biden said the Supreme Court requires change “because it’s getting out of whack.” Biden knows that the Supreme Court believes in the constitution, which means it is “getting out of whack.”
This should be a wake-up call to the Republican party and the American people. Democrats do not care about our institutions or political norms and will change what they want to get their way.
