Behind The Poll:
Democrats have given up on the ‘Build Back Better’ bill for now, and most of them have pivoted to pushing for the federal takeover of elections, disguised as “voting rights.”
In Elizabeth Warren’s case, she has decided to go back to the unpopular idea of packing the United States Supreme Court with liberal justices.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said in an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Wednesday that she supports expanding the Supreme Court by at least four seats.
“I don’t come to this conclusion lightly or because I disagree with a particular decision; I come to this conclusion because I believe the current court threatens the democratic foundations of our nation,” Warren wrote.
The Democratic senator laid out a list of judicial decisions that she believed warranted a Supreme Court expansion.
“This radical court has reversed century-old campaign-finance restrictions, opening the floodgates for corporations to spend unlimited sums of money to buy our elections. It has reversed well-settled law that once required employers to permit union organizers to meet with workers,” Warren said.
“It has trampled on the Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection by upholding a racist Muslim ban. It has twisted the law to deny Americans their right to a day in court, despite the clear intent of Congress. And it has gutted one of the most important civil rights laws of our time, the Voting Rights Act, not once but twice,” she continued.
