Senate Dems Deliver Ultimatum To SCOTUS: Heal Or Face Restructuring!

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.

Senators 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 related to to a New York City gun law(*)

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

Other Democratic candidates, including former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas, and Sens. Cory Booker of NJ, Pocahontas of Massachusetts, Kamala Harris of California, and Gillibrand, all have expressed their desire to "pack" the Supreme Court with more liberal-leaning Jurists so they can push through Gun Control measures that would otherwise be deemed infringements of the Second Amendment.

However,  Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders have openly opposed court-packing.

* NY State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. vs City of New York, which dealt with legal limitations on where gun owners could transport their licensed, locked, and unloaded firearms.

Governments will always devise ways to deprive an honest man of his money or property, and claim that it's legal.

I confess I was a bit startled to learn that.

Even Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said "Nine seems to be a good number.", implying that she is not favoring court packing.

See, people? Even Indy is making fun of people who are too old to serve in these positions.

I'm sure Ginsburg is sharp as a tack. I'm worried about the old people who aren't.

They should be forced to retire at 70.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Hey Oppo,

He is kind of like your protege, right?  I want you to sit down with him and help him out.  You have to have him unlearn his English and start him off again even if you have to take him back to first grade.  I will help him too.

That seems a pretty arbitrary number... Why 70?

Didn't FDR pick 70.5 as the age when a new justice should be appointed to assist (or perhaps negate) sitting justices?

You like FDR don't you?
