On October 1, according to The Washington Free Beacon’s Andrew Kugle, Democratic candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is running in New York’s 14th Congressional District, said that Democrats should "pack the Supreme Court" in the wake of the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh:

AUDIENCE MEMBER: If in a few months from now, the Supreme Court looks like I’m pretty scared it’s going to – a court that would overturn Roe and make the president above the rule of law – what is to be done?

OCASIO-CORTEZ: I think that we take back the House, we take back the Senate, we take back the presidency, and we pack the Supreme Court of the United States of America. Next!

With the nomination and subsequent appointment of Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, some progressives are calling for the next Democratic president to pack the court. However, as it was noted by the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1937, and repeated by legal scholars today, including Ilya Somin, the notion of court packing could prove to be a "menace to the role of judicial review as a check on the power of political majorities."

They cannot pack anything until after the Judges that are there now resign or die.
They can win the House and the Senate and it will still be 5 to 4 and perhaps 6 to 3 when Ginsberg leaves this earth.

Does this woman have any idea how our Government works?

She's a Socialist - of course she wants absolute rule. What, you think Socialists believe in equal representation?

What she's talking about is an idea Franklin Roosevelt came up with in the 30's. Nothing in the constitution sees the number of SC judges, so we'll just keep adding more until we get a majority. She doesn't seem to realize these "get a rounds" always come back to bite them in ass.

I am thinking you mean Franklin, but it doesn’t matter at this point. Why not have eleven, or more. Good grief. This crap has gotten way past old. BTW, Cortez thinks hurricanes are analyzed by the Richter Scale, among other uneducated, ignorant stupid rhetoric that she has said.

It’s going to be a bumpy ride. Hold on to your hats, y’all. Masks seem to be the fashion of the day. God bless America.

Don’t neglect your right to vote, y’all, unless you are dead, illegal, or are a hack. Thanks.

It would be funny if it wasn’t funny that fellow Americans, actually, believe in this moronic, lobotomized woman. I read her bio. It seems she has had ups and downs; like the rest of US. Shaking my head has become part of my daily life. It is hard to watch what is happening to our country. I would stop watching and crochet, or something, but I can’t stop watching, and, as of now, there are no new grand babies on the way.

I wonder how she would feel if Trump decided to pack the court. After all, if she thinks its OK for it to be done, then why wait?

LMAO Trump is doing just that--------------only legally.
Just waiting for Ginsburg not to wake up one day while sleeping during a court session.

Look up the judiciary act of 1802 if you think that the supreme Court is beyond the reach of a committed president who has willing majorities in house and Senate. Do you think president Warren is going to even hesitate to sign the 'restore justice to Americans act of 2022 ?'

I think if they got the right ME they could call time of death already.
