The Democratic mantra seems to be “if you can’t win by the rules, change them.”
That’s exactly how they’re going about the process of packing the Supreme Court. Just a couple of years ago, the idea seemed far-fetched. Joe Biden himself once called it a “bone-headed idea.”
Now the pressure from the left to overturn Trump’s 6-3 majority is intense. And Biden appears to have cracked.
Fox News reports:
Biden said in October he’d put together a bipartisan commission of scholars to send him recommendations within 180 days on how to reform a court system that’s “getting out of whack.” The White House said Wednesday Biden would be moving forward with the plans to study the federal judiciary.
“The President remains committed to an expert study of the role and debate over reform of the court and will have more to say in the coming weeks,” a White House official told Fox News.
The idea that we need a commission to “study” the Supreme Court, which is a fundamental part of our constitutional government and has been for hundreds of years, is ludicrous. It’s clearly an attempt by the executive branch to undermine the judicial branch. It’s a major attack on the separation of powers.
It’s crazy how quickly Democrats have gone to the nuclear option. It’s time for the courts to strike back.
