Rubio Reveals Dems ‘Dirty Little Secret’ — They've Wanted To ‘Pack The Supreme Court’ For Years

Florida GOP Sen. Marco Rubio has revealed something about Democrats that we all know -- but they think we are too stupid to see with our own eyes.
In an opinion column for Fox News, Rubio said the Democratic Party, which has been flirting with the idea of packing the Supreme Court with additional justices if Judge Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed for the Court, has been planning to pack the Court for a long time.
Rubio began: “You don’t need to wait for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s long-promised and still-elusive answer to know that a Biden administration would sign the legislation into law allowing them to pack the Supreme Court with left-wing activists. Biden may claim that he is ‘not a fan’ of court-packing, but when asked directly last week whether he would support it, he acknowledged ‘it depends’ on how Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination ‘turns out.’”
After Rubio wrote bluntly that Barrett would be confirmed and that Biden’s running mate, Senator Kamala Harris, said Barrett’s confirmation process was “illegitimate” and “reckless,” he opined that Biden would pack the Court “because his radical base demands it,” adding, “And here is the dirty little secret that Democrats do not want the American people to know: it has always been their plan to pack the Supreme Court with liberal judges.”
Rubio pointed out that in March 2019, he and other Senate Republicans, knowing the predilections of the Democrats, proposed a constitutional amendment limiting the Supreme Court to nine justices.
In his Fox opinion piece, Rubio noted, “It is telling that no Democratic senator has cosponsored my constitutional amendment, which would merely keep the Supreme Court at the same number of seats it has had since 1869.”
“Protecting our legal institutions is critical,” Rubio stated. “Over the past two centuries, they have defended and upheld Americans’ natural rights and made the United States the most exceptional nation in all of human history. But this is about more than our institutions — it is about what happens to our country, our communities, and our way of life if the radical left and the Democratic Party destroy them. It is clear they don’t want to pack the Supreme Court just to cancel out the votes of Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and soon Amy Coney Barrett. They want to pack the Court to cancel out your ability to resist their radical agenda.”
“The truth is that this is a major part of the Democratic Party’s desire to manipulate and coerce our public institutions into being an arm of their radical progressive agenda,” Rubio continued, adding, “And that radical agenda is part and parcel to Joe Biden, who said earlier this year that he would be the ‘most progressive president in history.’”
He concluded, “To protect our people, we need to protect our institutions and ensure no one can ever pack the Supreme Court for partisan gains.”
Court-packing has become a huge issue just weeks before the election.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden recently answered a question about whether he supports court-packing -- kind of.
Biden said he was “not a fan” of packing the Supreme Court by adding more justices.
His answer is still sort of a non-answer.
He did say he's "not a fan" of the idea, but then he began to deflect and tried to change the subject by saying he didn't want to get into the issue because the election has begun.
If he was against court-packing, he could literally just say he does not support it.
At the first presidential debate with President Donald Trump, Biden refused to answer the question asked by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace.
When asked again last week on his position on packing the court he said, point-blank, that you have to vote before he will tell you his position on it.
"You'll know my opinion on court-packing when the election is over," he said. It's a great question, and I don't blame you for asking. But you know, the moment I answer that question, the headline in every one of your papers will be on the answer to that question.”
