On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that Democrats “would certainly be in the constitutional right” to pack the Supreme Court, Republicans have already packed courts, “everything will be on the table” if Democrats control the White House and the Senate, and Democrats won’t “fall into the trap of debating” court-packing now.
Schumer said, “We would certainly be in the constitutional right to do it. Let me say this, you know, the Republicans are always looking for a smokescreen. They don’t want America to know that this justice would take away their health care. They don’t want America to know that this justice would repeal Roe v. Wade even though 71% of Americans are against it. They don’t want to know that this justice could turn the court into something that would get rid of all labor unions, make America a right-to-work state following the Janus decision. So, they come up with smokescreens.”
