GOP Sen. Marsha Blackburn Reveals Real Reason Democrats Want To Expand The Supreme Court

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) spoke out on Thursday in a press conference to reveal the real reason she thinks Democrats want to pack the Supreme Court, saying that they want to turn it into a “super legislative body” so they can have people who “rubber-stamp everything they believe.”

Blackburn Sounds Off

“Can you even imagine what Joy Reid and her MSNBC friends would be saying if Republicans tried to pack the Court? They would just lose it, and it would be nonstop coverage,” Blackburn said as she stood with Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC).

“The Democrats are trying to pack the Court, to turn it into a super legislative body so they have people that are going to rubber-stamp everything they believe. Everything,” she said, citing the Green New Deal, H.R. 1, and the Equality Act as examples of this.

“And if they are successful, you will not see life protected. You will see government-run health care. I guarantee you, they will come to take away your guns. These are things you can count on because this is their agenda,” she warned.

Blackburn Doubles Down

“Their policies are so unpopular, they know they could not get it through the House and the Senate,” Blackburn added. “Why are they keeping the Capitol in lockdown? Why are they keeping people away, not giving them the opportunity to petition their government?”

“They are doing it because they want to radically change this country and radically change our institutions,” Blackburn said as she pledged to stand against the left’s push to pack the Court and fight to preserve liberties.

“All these institutions are important to the American people, and they want to see us stand for the Constitution, for freedom, for liberty, for the institutions that have kept this nation free,” Blackburn continued.

Democrats Introduce Bill

This comes just one week after Democrats introduced the Judiciary Act of 2021 to expand the Supreme Court from 9 justices to 13. When announcing this, Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) whined about what described as a “stilted, illegitimate 6-3 conservative majority on the Court.”

“The Republicans stole two seats on the Supreme Court, and now it is up to us to repair that damage. Our democracy is in jeopardy today because the Supreme Court’s standing is sorely damaged. And the way we repair it is straightforward,” Markey said. 

“These four new seats, to be filled by President Biden, will reconstitute the United States Supreme Court,” he added. “The bench will then rightfully reflect the values of the majority of the American people on whose behalf they serve.”
