Democrat Wants to Pack the Supreme Court and Calls It Constitutional

Democrats have been highly agitated, with more conservative-leaning judges making up the majority of the Supreme Court. They have long since discussed packing the court to combat this and Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr (D-NJ) has stated his plans.

The Democrat politician has publicly said he wants to add to the number of Supreme Court Justices and said it would “reinvigorate our Constitution.”

“I urge all my colleagues to support expanding the Supreme Court. Balancing the Court will undo decades of republican court packing, reinvigorate our Constitution, and protect American democracy,” Pascrell tweeted.

Ironically, Pascrell tweeted in June that Republicans were packing the Court — only to call for this the very next month.

“Balancing the Court undoes decades of republican court packing. New justices will reinvigorate our Constitution to reflect our nation,” he tweeted in part.

Now deceased former justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, chose not to retire. That decision ultimately allowed former President Donald Trump to nominate a candidate to the Supreme Court. Amy Coney Barrett replaced her and helped to usher in the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

For over a hundred years, the highest Court in the United States has had nine seats. Now, Democrats appear more desperate to add more liberal justices to pass their agenda.

The number of justices has changed over the course of history. But as of 1869, the settled number has been nine.

More Democrat politicians expressed their desire to see the court change.

“I’m a woman of color who’s had an abortion, is in a loving, interracial marriage, and has an amazing trans daughter. This extremist Supreme Court is a direct threat to me, my loved ones, and to millions of people all across this country. We need balance now. Expand the Court,” Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) tweeted.

While Democrats preach tolerance and acceptance, no such thing has been given to conservative justices. Clarence Thomas received much of the brunt of the attacks. As a black man, many liberals have attacked him for his race and conservative beliefs.

“Expand the Supreme Court before Clarence Thomas’ far-right dystopia becomes our reality,” another Democrat representative tweeted. Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY) continued, “the cascade of horrors won’t stop until Democrats use their power. Expanding the Court is more important than ever.”

It appears that the overturning of Roe v. Wade was the final straw for Democrat politicians and their focus on the Supreme Court doesn’t seem to be dying down.
