Responding "in kind" would be blocking a Republican President from filling a vacant seat the next time one opens up and the Dems control the Senate. What is being discussed here, court-packing, is a significant escalation. It's an escalation that Republicans have not pursued, which exposes the inaccuracy of your claim that they are "using any and every tool". Court-packing is a chainsaw they have not wielded.
