House Democrats Block Measure to Prevent Expanding SCOTUS Bench


On Wednesday, House Democrats blocked a measure by Republicans to prevent the expansion of the Supreme Court.

The Republican resolution proposed an amendment to the Constitution requiring the Supreme Court to be composed of nine justices.

The Daily Wire reports:

“Fundamentally changing the composition of the court to satisfy the demands of one political party would permanently erode the independence of the judicial branch and forever alter the separation of powers, which is the very foundation our constitution and our nation were built upon,” Cole warned.

But House Democrats opted to block the measure.

“Where does it end?” asked Rep. Dusty Johnson (R-SD), citing the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s opposition to packing the court. “Once this body establishes that the size of the court can grow only so that we can secure the preferred judicial decisions of the House majority, where does it end?”

Senate Democrats are currently divided in their discussions over whether they support expanding the Supreme Court, The Hill reported Wednesday. As they discuss reforms, such as increasing the number of justices and imposing term limits, the Democrats recognize that they do not have the votes necessary to enact these policies.

The ideas are fueled by the overturn of Roe v. Wade in Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization and other monumental cases as of late, the publication reported.

The Supreme Court has held nine justices for 153 years.

With good fortune, they can try again in January … Something the democrats might then find desirable to support, to prevent the opposition from expanding the Court, if they eventually control the House, Senate, and Presidency.

the democrats or should I say DIM…O….RATS….should be worried about the 3 million illegals that have invaded our American borders smuggling enough fentanyl across the border to kill everybody in Texas and in Washington. Can you imagine this getting into our water supply. China would like nothing better, and they are behind the drugs coming into this country as much as the Cartel. China wants the power, the Cartel wants money. China is all about helping finance the criminals walking unafraid and without legal consequences or cost into our country across the border any day and at any time. Hells Bells most are given hotel rooms and a cell phone. Biden should pull his big pants on, or Obama should come out of the basement and admit he is running this country into the ground because he wants a communist country…..and get it on. We are not putting up with this crap anymore. Biden will not protect the USA citizens and we will not allow the government to take away our guns. We will protect our own, and our beloved country. We will take back the House and the Senate in November. The Dim-o-rats have sunk their ships, and even all the Hispanics think the Dems are despicable. We don’t have a President or Vice President in control of this country and I’m sure China is thinking Taiwan is prime for picking RIGHT NOW without any problems from Biden or Hunter or Jill or Obama. Taiwan is who is building all the worldwide microchips…..without microchips your cars don’t run, your computers don’t run, your refrigerator, your HVAC etc. etc. …..and without Taiwans airport we don’t have an airport to land refuel and help fight any war any place. Think about that one. and while I’m chatting the “green new deal” has failed in every country (24 so far) where people are starving now without fossil fuel to grow the crops and fertilize the fields. If we don’t deep six Biden and his Dems soon we are all going to be in a mell of a hess and we will starve too, STOP THIS MADNESS & INSANITY. Please Heavenly Father help us fight the demons, give us strength, courage, common sense, intelligence and bravery to turn this country around. Please don’t leave us now. Everyone we must Stand tall and tough right now!

TERM LIMITS ACROSS THE BOARD, END ALL LIFELONG BENEFITS FOR ALL POLITICIANS, NO MORE FEDERAL WELFARE RECIPIENTS FOR LIFE, OUTLAW STOCK TRADING FOR CONGRESS AND FAMILY MEMBERS, REDUCE SALARIES BY HALF. THIS WAY WE WOULD BE ABLE TO ELECT OFFICIALS WHO ARE RUNNING FOR THE ACTUAL BENEFIT OF AMERICA NOT THEIR GREEDY, WORTHLESS, SELVES LIKE THE PRESENT ADMINISTRATION.

Demo-communists are bound and determined to get “their way” , “pack the court”, and “install” “LIBERAL”, “CONTROLLED”, so-called “justices” that rule by THEIR “political preferences”, or THEIR “personal feelings” NOT the U.S Constitution or Bill of Rights.This attempt to undermine this country, and the rule of law by corrupt demo-communists must be put to an end, or we will cease to become a country.
