Michael Medved: Biden’s Blunder on Court Packing

Joe Biden makes a serious mistake when he repeatedly refuses to answer legitimate questions about his position on adding new justices to the Supreme Court—the same scheme of “court packing” that became FDR’s biggest blunder in 1937.

Biden says he’ll reveal his intentions after the election, but not before—denying voters a fully informed choice on November 3rd. The right answer should be easy: expressing confidence in the court and its moderate leadership by Chief Justice Roberts, while pledging no effort to add new justices unless there’s a sudden series of power-grabbing decisions that violate from the Constitutional mainstream.

Republican appointees have comprised the court majority for 45 years, but the Supremes have hardly moved in an ultra-conservative direction. Biden must ultimately come clean on his court-packing plans, or pay a political price for hiding information the electorate deserves.

Hugh Hewitt: Court Packing Is a Threat to Core American Freedoms

For the good of the country, Joe Biden must clearly and definitively answer the court-packing question

The Supreme Court is now at center stage with the start of Senate confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett. The court is also now at the center of the presidential election as many Democrats demand that—if their party controls the White House and Senate after the election—the court be expanded to establish a liberal majority.

“Court packing” is now a major issue in the presidential campaign because neither Joe Biden nor Kamala Harris—his running mate—will say what they think about demands by their party’s radical wing to expand the court.

Court-packing is a threat to the Supreme Court and thus to every American freedom, especially religious liberty, and the Second Amendment and property rights, and the separation of powers fundamental to our republic’s durability.

The Biden-Harris ticket should publicly condemn the idea—and condemn it now.
