More justices just the ticket for 'America last' Dems

Sen. Chuck Schumer with For the People ActA political action organization is strongly opposed to a Democrat effort to stack the Supreme Court, as it would put the party on a fast track to change America for the worse.

In 1983, then-Senator Joe Biden called court packing a "bonehead idea." Then in 2005, he said eliminating the filibuster for political convenience would gut the "core of what the Senate is about as an institution." But now, Biden and his far-left allies want to expand the high court from nine members to 13, which would give the Democrats a rubber stamp for their radical agenda.

"The Democrats now want to stack the court and want to basically implement full socialist agenda through the courts," says Rob Chambers, a spokesman for AFA Action. "If they can't beat it at the legislative level, they go to the courts. That's what the Democratic left, socialist, America last Democrats are wanting to do with the Supreme Court."

That, says Chambers, would provide Democrats an avenue to fast-track all aspects of their legislative agenda.

"That would be the Equality Act that would basically eviscerate all the religious liberty protections of individual business owners and would probably even encroach upon some religious institutions," he notes. "It would also seek … to advance H.R.1 or S. 1, which is the egregious overreach of Democrats in Congress to centralize federal elections under the power of Congress."

The AFA Action spokesman reiterates that stacking the Supreme Court would allow the Democrats to accomplish at the judicial level what they cannot accomplish at the legislative level.
