Biden’s Court Packing Threat

Joe Biden’s ominous threat about our courts.
With the ALG Minute, I’m Catherine Mortensen.
On the question of court packing Joe Biden says, “You’ll know my opinion on court packing when the election is over.”
“Packing the court” is when a president increases the number of judges in order to get a desired political outcome.
President Franklin Roosevelt tried to do it in order obtain a favorable ruling for the New Deal legislation.
In 2013, the Obama-Biden Administration was accused of “packing” what is often called the 2nd highest court in the land – the federal appeals court for the DC circuit.
The fact that Biden has been involved in what looks like court packing in the past, should concern every American. If he is allowed back into the White House, and his party gains control of the Senate, he could very likely push through a Roosevelt-type scheme to politicize the Supreme Court.
