US History of Adding to the SC. "Supreme Court/Changing number of justices not a new idea"

This is an interesting read about the History of adding & removing Supreme Court seats & why 2020 is critical for a Democratic President, House & Senate.

Without all 3, it will be difficult to do.

VOTING downballot for the strongest Dem House & Senate candidate on the ballot is critical.

Find out who holds the greatest advantage against the Republican candidate and vote, or this cheering for Stacking the Court is already lost.

1. As I understand it, the SC turns down cases every year.

Why not have two panels of Justices? They can address more cases that are appropriately brought to the Court.

2. That's an interesting idea I don't know for certain but don't believe there's anything..

..in the Constitution that would deny your idea.

We should ask Pete B to weigh in on this.
He could turn a topic like the Constitution into a fascinating forum.

I love listening to his brain at work!
🙂
