Dems Threaten Supreme Court: ‘Heal’ or Face Drastic Restructuring

Recommended Posts


Several Senate Democrats have issued a strong threat to the Supreme Court if it does not rule in ways Democrats find favorable: "Heal itself," or face restructuring.

The group, which includes five Democratic senators, made the demand in the form of an amicus brief filed in a court case regarding New York City gun laws. Presidential candidate and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) joined Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse (D. R.I.), Richard Blumenthal, (D., Conn.), Mazie Hirono (D., Hawaii), and Richard Durbin (D., Ill.) in signing on to the brief.

The brief blasts the court as overly partisan and too friendly to conservative causes. It claims the court has influenced "sensitive areas" including "voting rights, partisan gerrymandering, dark money, union power," and civil rights and discrimination issues in the workplace, among others. "Every single time, the corporate and Republican political interests prevailed," it reads.:snip:

1. Oh that'll work out well. :rolleyes:

2. Substitute Liberal for Conservative and it sounds like Conservative Republicans for the last....60-70 years.

3. Lets hope it stays that way for the next 60-70 years. If for no other reason than to let the Democrats know how it feels. :evil:
