Liberal Justices Against Packing the Court

Pro-abortion politicians in Congress are working to pack the Supreme Court with fellow extremists.  They want to increase the number of justices from nine to thirteen.  But liberal Justice Stephen Breyer and the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg are on record opposing the scheme.  Breyer said such a move would, make the Court “another political institution” and give the appearance the justices were “junior league politicians.”  Ginsburg said, “I think it was a bad idea when President Franklin Roosevelt tried to pack the court” in an attempt to advance his political agenda, but it failed and cost the president substantial political clout.  The real reason behind the plan is to keep abortion on demand the law of the land, even as most American’s reject this extremism.
