FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Democrats’ Calls to Pack the Supreme Court

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to Democratic Presidential Candidates’ comments that they would not rule-out adding additional Justices to the United States Supreme Court, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“Democrats still haven’t come to grips with the fact that the days of an activist Supreme Court that legislates from the bench are over. These Democratic 2020 hopefuls are also out of touch with reality if they think that packing the court won’t backfire on them in the future. This is an act of desperation by a Democratic Party that is on the ropes.

“If you can’t beat them at the ballot box, just change the rules. That’s how Democratic 2020 hopefuls obviously see things. The American people elected President Trump and a Republican Senate to confirm conservative justices who will uphold the Constitution and the rule of law. By packing the court to advance their far-left agenda, Democrats seek to circumvent the will of the American people.”
