Nancy Pelosi Weighs in on Democrats’ Plan to Pack Supreme Court
On Thursday, Democrats took strong and hard initiative to pack the Supreme Court with liberal justices.
This comes just weeks, or maybe just one week, after Joe Biden signed an executive order to look into the idea of adding more Supreme Court justices.
Well, the piece of scum Democrats said screw that and decided to go ahead and try to pack the court anyway. That’s why they have already introduced a bill to increase the number of justices from 9 to 13.
Fox News reported,
Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., along with House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., and Judiciary Committee members Mondaire Jones, D-N.Y., and Hank Johnson, D-Ga., stood outside the Supreme Court Thursday to announce their new legislation to expand the high court from 9 to 13 justices.
They said the far-right has hijacked the court thanks to “norm-breaking” moves by Senate Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and expanding the number of justices is necessary to restore balance and integrity to the highest court in America.
Jones, a freshman lawmaker from New York’s Westchester County, said the Supreme Court’s latest decisions on campaign finance, voting rights and partisan gerrymandering show the “court has been hostile to democracy itself.”‘
Our democracy is in crisis.
If we’re going to save it, we must #ExpandTheCourt.

The most hypocritical thing about this is that in that little video, he says President Trump appointed justices who were “hostile to our democracy” and promised a “minority rule for a generation.” Conservatives are not the minority, they are the majority. And what is it that they’re not proposing? Well, they are trying to put us under Democratic rule for a generation, maybe two.
Nancy Pelosi weighed in on the bill also…
“No. I support the president’s commission to study such a proposal…I have no plans to bring it to the floor. No.”
.@SpeakerPelosi on if she supports @RepJerryNadler's bill to expand the Supreme Court by four seats: "No. I support the president's commission to study such a proposal…I have no plans to bring it to the floor. No."
