Radical Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is using the recent leak of a Supreme Court opinion draft to further her own agenda. Rep. Omar has publicly called to pack the Supreme Court in the past and is now using current events to dust off the played-out narrative in hopes of finally seeing some success.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“Overturning Roe would put the lives of women across the country at risk. It would fly in the face of decades of precedent and the overwhelming majority of public opinion. And they will not stop here. Expand the court,” Omar tweeted.
Omar added, “Congress must also abolish the filibuster and pass the Women’s Health Protection Act to codify Roe v. Wade into law.”
This isn’t the first time Omar and her progressive cohorts have attempted to push the narrative that the court is broken and can only be fixed by expanding its size.
“Expand the court,” Omar tweeted. “Remember that Republicans have lost 6 of the last 7 popular votes, but have appointed 6 of the last 9 justices. By expanding the court we fix this broken system and have the court better represent the values of the American people.”
Exactly one year after Barrett’s confirmation, Omar and other liberal lawmakers and activists held a rally at the Supreme Court, once again calling for congressional legislation to allow court-packing.
Last year, President Biden formed the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States to research the fundamental framework of the nation’s highest court, including the size of the nation’s highest bench.
The commission’s report signaled a “profound disagreement” regarding the number of justices on the bench.
