Republicans jammed through a historically unpopular Supreme Court justice, in a historically short period of time, literally days before the election. They succeeded by ignoring their own voter opinion, their own precedent, their own committee rules, and all other legislative needs including pandemic relief.
And the Supreme Court, now with a 6-3 Republican slant, is wildly unrepresentative of the American people (1/3 of those seats were filled by Trump, who lost the popular vote in 2016) and set to cripple us with damaging conservative opinions on climate change, voter rights, women's and LGBTQ+ rights, and healthcare for decades to come.
Democrats MUST play hardball to fight back. It's time to expand the Supreme Court.
Add your name to demand Democrats add more seats to the Supreme Court when we take back the White House and Senate.
The number of Supreme Court justice seats is not Constitutionally mandated, and has fluctuated over the history of our country. Changing the number again now would have precedent AND allow us more accurate representation.
We must urge our Democratic leaders to take this big step in 2021, to protect us from Mitch McConnell's coup of our highest court.
