BREAKING -- “There’s no question that Justice Breyer, for whom I have great respect, should retire at the end of this term. My goodness: have we not learned our lesson?” Dem @RepMondaire Jones, who just introduced a court expansion bill, tells me/@cheddar BREYER should retire https://t.co/F1XjeMrfKu
We are very lucky to have Mondaire Jones in Congress. https://t.co/gnzINUaiX3
NEWS: @RepMondaire, @RepHankJohnson, @SenMarkey, and @RepJerryNadler will introduce a bill to add four seats to the Supreme Court. Here's what you need to know about why we need to add four seats to save our democracy. https://t.co/km31FY70I1
It’s time we reform the courts! https://t.co/5PDvaEtNeQ
The argument here is we should accept a 6-3 Court for the next decade or two, no matter how illegitimate its origin and no matter how much damage it causes, in exchange for the eventual successors to Kavanaugh Gorsuch & Barrett being term-limited https://t.co/K0YC2WXz0l
Seeing lots of Dem politicians trying to show solidarity on twitter tonight with people distraught by the killing of unarmed young men, but then tomorrow they will run the hell away from the policy solution being sought by those on the frontlines of this issue. It's a problem
The last 5 times Congress added SCOTUS seats, it matched the # of circuit courts: 1802: 6 Court seats; 6 circuits 1807: 7 seats; 7 circuits 1837: 9 seats; 9 Circuits 1863: 10 seats; 10 Circuits 1869: 9 seats; 9 circuits Today we have 13 circuits, which aligns w/ 13 SCOTUS seats
2010: Citizens United flooded our elections w/ dark money 2013: Shelby County v. Holder removed a key provision of the #VotingRightsAct 2019: Rucho v. Common Cause allowed for partisan gerrymandering All of these decisions threaten our democracy. We must #ExpandTheCourt.
Pelosi on possible Supreme Court expansion overall: "I think it's an idea that should be considered and I think the President's taking the right approach to have a commission to study such a thing. It's a big step. It's not out of the question. It has been done before."
This initial, openminded reaction from the Speaker is pretty good, actually. https://t.co/O6sereEkcR
To translate here: Dems lack the votes to pass a SCOTUS expansion in the House. Let alone the Senate. https://t.co/ijGZW1v0zC
Even the sponsors would agree it doesnt have the votes yet. The point in introducing the bill is to build support for it, a project that will only be aided by bad rulings from this 6-3 Court. Filibuster elimination didnt have the votes two years ago either https://t.co/NzcUKogVKx
