In a bid to curtail Democratic Presidential candidates from adding 6 more seats to the Supreme Court a constitutional amendment is going to be introduced. Democrats state the effort is to depoliticize the Supreme Court.
Why tamper with what has worked for well over 100 years.
Unless of course, your goal is to destroy a nation from the inside out by eliminating the energy industry under the guise of saving it, killing the agriculture industry under the false pretense of saving it, and closing all manufacturing and heavy industry using the claim of environmental jobs.
If you are going to change the Constitution in regards to the Supreme Court put in term limits for the Judges, no more lifetime appointments.
Funny thing, there's already a law in place on the number of SC seats. It's the "Judicial Act of 1869"!
I don't think you need to limit supreme court seats. Just put an ammendment that states that if you add supreme court seats, they can't be filled until the current president is out of office. That way presidents can't just add seats to stack the court.
Gop is scared they will lose their activist court.
Even if it did pass into law with a veto proof majority(impossible) the court could just rule the change unconstitutional via separation of powers.
FDR tried to do the same thing when the courts ruled against him and he failed. I'm pretty sure this is something that the conservative judges would agree on at least.
It will not pass
Quality over quantity
right now supreme court has neither.
Haven't Dems beat this dead horse before in the last 155 years....
The Judicial Procedures Reform Bill of 1937 (frequently called the "court-packing plan") was a legislative initiative proposed by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt to add more justices to the U.S. Supreme Court. Roosevelt's purpose was to obtain favorable rulings regarding New Deal legislation that the court had ruled unconstitutional.
