House Democrats' Court Packing Bill Much Worse Than Roosevelt's 1937 Attempt; POLL: Voters Reject Adding Justices to the Supreme Court by 2-to-1 Margin, and related stories

House Democrats' court packing bill much worse than Roosevelt's 1937 attempt:
The latest attempt to tear down a key foundation of our republic is the bill that was introduced by Sen. Edward J. Markey, Massachusetts Democrat, House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler and others to expand the U.S. Supreme Court. Their goal is to enable Democrats to hold a 7-6 majority and control all three branches of government.
As our educational system shifts from civics education to teaching political activism with curricula such as the 1619 Project and concepts such as protecting the minority against the “Tyranny of the Majority.” The 1619 Project in particular revises history to conclude that America is inherently bad, and in the process they miss why the Founders did not opt for a pure Democracy where to the winner went all the spoils.
While Franklin D. Roosevelt was also wrong when this was last tried during his fireside chat after his reelection in 1936, the current attempt in Congress is much more absurd.
At least in Roosevelt’s defense almost the entire country supported his agenda at that time. His popular vote win was more than five times as great as President Biden’s margin, and Roosevelt won the Electoral College 523-8, while Mr. Biden’s Electoral College win was in doubt long after the polls closed. Roosevelt’s policies were so popular that Republicans clung to only 89 seats out of 435, compared to the near majority of 213 they hold today, and they held only 16 of 100 Senate seats. --->READ MORE HERE

Voters reject adding justices to the Supreme Court by 2-to-1 margin, poll finds:
Voters oppose adding justices to the Supreme Court by a 2-to-1 margin, according to a new Morning Consult poll published Wednesday.
About 26% of voters thought Congress should pass a law allowing more than nine justices to serve on the high court, while 46% of those surveyed opposed a court-packing plan.
The numbers were similar to a poll taken in October when Republicans confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett, former President Trump’s appointee, to a seat previously held by the late liberal icon Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. --->READ MORE HERE
