Ruth Bader Ginsburg: “Bad idea when [FDR] tried to pack the court… If anything would make the court appear partisan it’d be…one side saying, ‘When we’re in power we’re going to enlarge the number of judges so we’ll have more ppl who will vote the way we want them to.’”

You elect presidents, you don’t “install” them!
“The comments mark the furthest a sitting justice has gone, since the sudden death of the late Justice Antonin Scalia earlier this year, to signal that the court would function better with a fully staffed bench,” CNN reported. “Ginsburg was giving an end of the term report to an audience of mostly judges of the Second Circuit Judicial Conference in New York.”
Ginsburg’s resurfaced remark follows her passing late last week after she lost her the fight against her fifth bout with cancer. More
Both make sense because RBG wanted to preserve the norms. Now they want to do an end-around what she believed in to get power.

Today’s Democrats don’t know actual American history so they are unaware of Roosevelt’s attempt to pack the SCOTUS. Dems are only know the history they have rewritten.

Dems think the advice/wish she allegedly uttered near death should be respected but don’t want to heed her well-considered advice here, stated while clearly lucid.

There is no line the Democrats won’t cross for power. They will disregard and disrespect RBG on this if they think it would serve their list for power

Once again, I’ll explain it for the people that have a short memory. Garland NEVER would have been confirmed because the republicans had the majority in the Senate. The GOP had the majority with 53 so it wouldn’t have mattered

RBG is right on this.
Packing the courts would come back and haunt the Democrats in the same way the filibuster rule has come back and bitten them in the proverbial butt.
