Senate Dems deliver stunning warning to Supreme Court: ‘Heal’ or face restructuring

Recommended Posts

"Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental restructuring if justices do not take steps to "heal" the court in the near future.

The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court's conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.

"The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it," the brief said. "Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be 'restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.'""

People have hated the supreme court pretty much since the first person lost.

Here's a story about packing the court.

Can’t....and they know it 

the Judiciary Act of 1869 set the Court at nine. When FDR tried to pack the court, he couldn’t

but their base isn’t smart enough for even the slightest thought, so they cheer, donate, trend, and vote
