Democrats thought they had RBG in their pocket – but she just proved them very wrong!
It’s hard to ignore the successes Trump has scored for our country. Even Democrats have to admit, he’s pretty darn good at getting what he wants.
So, they’ve resorted to ridiculous means in order to stop him. They have even suggested, on numerous occasions, taking steps to ignore the Constitution and transform the Supreme Court.
All to stop the man who made America great again.
But, despite what we think, there are a few Democrats who occasionally have moments of common sense. And—surprise!—Ginsburg is one of them.
From Washington Examiner:
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said she does not support Democratic proposals to add judges to the high court…
“Nine seems to be a good number. It’s been that way for a long time,” she told NPR on Tuesday. “I think it was a bad idea when President Franklin Roosevelt tried to pack the court.”
Ginsburg said modifying term limits would be harder because “Our Constitution is powerfully hard to amend.”
Wow. I’m sure more than a few liberals were outraged over RBG’s assertion that Democrats shouldn’t pack the SCOTUS.
I guess she has enough sense to realize that if the party in power can pack the court, Democrats could easily be in trouble whenever they lose the majority.
Numerous 2020 candidates have proposed a plan to cram more judges onto the Supreme Court.
The reason is obvious. Thanks to Trump was have a conservative majority. Some of the oldest justices are liberal and are soon retiring.
That means Trump will get another pick. A pick that will serve for at least 30 years.
Instead of respecting that fact, Democrats want to add as many liberal judges to the court as they need to get a majority.
They don’t care about the balance of the court. That a smaller number is needed to avoid chaos and split decisions.
They just want to win—no matter the costs.
FDR was the last liberal who wanted to force his agenda by flooding the court. You should be happy he never got his way.
Today, Democrats are much the same.
On the Left, only Ginsburg seems to have the right view of the situation. We shouldn’t upend centuries of Constitutional guidance, just so Democrats can have their way.
SHARE if you agree with Ginsburg—no packing the court!
