Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) joined Fox News Radio’s Guy Benson Show to discuss Democrat’s push to pack Supreme Court with four new justices. Democrat lawmakers introduced a bill that would increase the court from 9 to 13 justices.
Senator Sasse said,
“I don’t know how to guess how the politics play out, but a bunch of these people are clearly high. Like I didn’t remember the Guam line, but it feels like just kind of a weed infused policy rollout would have included the danger of Guam capsizing. So that’s a good time.”
Sasse also added,
“I think there have been folks on the progressive activist left who’ve been pledging to pack the courts since Brett Kavanaugh was nominated. So I think we just admit historically over the last three-ish years, there’s nothing brand new here. This is an attempt to fulfill a delusional campaign promise. And this isn’t about balancing the court the wrong kind of a verb to use about an independent judiciary, because our judges wear black robes for a reason. They’re not supposed to be Republican or Democrat, blue or red jersey wearing, they’re not supposed to be partizan political actors. They don’t make the rules. They’re supposed to be applying them. So if you if you believe that the Supreme Court isn’t a super legislature, then you don’t think about packing the court to get specific legislative policy outcomes. And even just at the level of, you know, we’re in a 50 50 Senate and they’re talking about nuking the court as if they have some massive, historic, you know, precedent to do this. It’s nonsense.”
