McConnell Slams Dems For Power Grab Attempt
It has been about three months since Biden came into Office, and in that time Dems have not been shy about their want to transform our country. In fact, it feels far more like they want to take it over. Dems have been working to get rid of the filibuster, so that they can pass anything they want without interference from the GOP and now they are trying to pack the SCOTUS so that they will have close to total control. Senator McConnell spoke out about their attempt to ruin The Supreme Court.
"... in recent years we've seen Democratic leaders stand on the steps of the court and threaten that specific justices 'won't know what hit em' if they didn't rule the way they wanted. We've seen a number of Democratic senators send threatening briefs suggesting the court might need to be 'restructured' if its rulings upset liberals."
"They are introducing a bill to add four new seats to the Supreme Court so that Democrats can pack the court, destroy its legitimacy and guarantee the rulings that liberals want."
"The late liberal icon JusticeRuth Bader Ginsberg explicitly warned against court-packing, "if anything would make the court appear partisan, it would be that. Nine seems to be a good number.'"
And according to a recent poll Americans don't want court-packing either.
"One survey late last year showed a clear majority of Americans oppose packing the Supreme Court, but the farthest left activists aren't interested in the common good, they want power," the senator said. "The same Democrats and the same corporate media that spent the last four years hyperventilating and declaring a new constitutional crisis was underway every 30 seconds seem to be perfectly content to play along."

The Supreme Court has not been modified since 1869. Politicians messed with it a bit before to gain political advantage, but it was petty and since then we have known better. But Dems are power-hungry and trying to stop the GOP from ever holding Office again. So it seems they caused the border crisis to boost their voter base and are trying to take control of the SCOTUS to pass whatever they want.
