omnibus Supreme Court-packing thread


Court-packing of SCOTUS is an idea that's gaining more and more traction among Democrats, including Kamala, Beto, Ocasio-Cortez and Warren (links: here and here and here and here)

There are several ways in which this would be disastrous. 1) Republicans will just do the same thing on an even bigger scale when they get the chance years down the road, 2) it ruins the legitimacy of SCOTUS as the SCOTUS becomes perceived as nothing but a political arm, 3) it's simply flat-out partisan. Sure, McConnell blocking Garland was partisan, but that was wrong, too.
