The Supreme Court promises to be one of the defining issues in the 2020 election.
That’s because Donald Trump’s nominations of Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh are two of the highlight achievements of his Presidency.
But the Supreme Court could undergo one big change that is bad news for Donald Trump.
South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is one of the top contenders for the Democrat presidential nomination.
Like every other candidate, he is running far to the left in order to court the party’s radical base.
And one idea he came up with was packing the Supreme Court with six new liberal justices.
Buttigieg outrageously claims this is “nonpartisan” but installing six new liberals judges on the Court will give the left a 10-5 majority.
That means when a Republican holds the White House, they will never be allowed to govern as the liberal justices will just strike down every action they take.
2020 White House hopeful and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) has reiterated his support for packing the Supreme Court, stating he views the policy proposal as “the one that I find most intriguing.”
In an interview with NBC News released Monday, Buttigieg discussed his plans to “overhaul” the nation’s highest court. The Indiana Democrat told the news outlet that he supports “whatever Supreme Court reform will depoliticize this body” in an effort to change its perception of “an almost nakedly political institution.”
“The reform of not just expanding the number of members but doing it in a way where some of them are selected on a consensus, nonpartisan basis, it’s a very promising way to do it,” he claimed. “There may be others.
But the point is, we’ve got to get out of where we are now, where any time there is an opening, there is an apocalyptic, ideological firefight. It harms the court, it harms the country, and it leads to outcomes like we have right now.”
Court packing is one radical idea that quickly gained traction in the Democrat primaries.
Another is eliminating the Electoral College.
Democrats are seizing on these ideas because they think Republicans should never be allowed to win elections or govern.
They want to rig the system in their favor in perpetuity and that is why you see presidential candidates playing to their base’s anger by embracing increasingly radical policy prescriptions.
