Democrats have been itching for this fight.
But they got some bad news.
And that’s because Joe Biden got a warning from the Supreme Court that stopped him dead in his tracks.
Democrats spent the last five years fuming about the Supreme Court.
In 2016, Republicans blocked Barack Obama from swinging the court to a five to four liberal majority by blocking Obama’s nominee to fill the late Antonin Scalia’s seat.
Republicans reasoned that with a Democrat in the White House and a Republican Senate, the voters should decide who they wanted picking Scalia’s successor.
The GOP won that gamble when Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton and placed three conservatives on the Supreme Court.
When Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away and Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett, Democrats threatened to pack the Supreme Court with as many as six new liberal justices if they won the 2020 election.
Democrats have yet to follow through and liberal Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer warned Democrats not to travel down this road.
Breyer said in an interview that if the Democrats packed the Supreme Court, Republicans would eventually win back power and respond in kind.
“What goes around comes around,” Breyer stated. “And if the Democrats can do it, then the Republicans can do it.”
Breyer added that both parties engaging in an escalating war of court-packing would destroy the Supreme Court.
“If A can do it, B can do it. And what are you going to have when you have A and B doing it?” Breyer warned. “Nobody really knows, but there’s a risk, and how big a risk do you want to take?”
Breyer’s words fell on deaf ears with some leaders in the Democrat Party.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ranted that a five to four decision allowing a Texas pro-life law that banned abortion after six weeks that could take effect was grounds for packing the court.
“Republicans promised to overturn Roe v Wade, and they have,” Ocasio-Cortez posted on social media. “Democrats can either abolish the filibuster and expand the court, or do nothing as millions of peoples’ bodies, rights, and lives are sacrificed for far-right minority rule.
“This shouldn’t be a difficult decision,” Ocasio-Cortez concluded.
Ocasio-Cortez’s fellow New York Congressman and “Squad” member Jamaal Bowman echoed Ocasio-Cortez’s call to pack the court out of fear a conservative majority would end the horror of abortion on demand.
“For 48 years, Roe v. Wade has been the law of the land in America,” Bowman ranted. “Republicans on the Supreme Court just effectively struck it down. They’re not playing by the rules, and it’s time for the President and Senate to act to save lives.
“Expand the Court,” Bowman added.
But Joe Biden is listening to Breyer.
Warnings from Breyer – and public opinion polls showing court-packing is horribly unpopular – caused Biden to backdown and try and ignore the left’s calls to pack the court.
