Response to babylonsister (Original post)

3. The Republicans upended norms with Garland

and some kind of remedy should be called for. There has to be some kind of response/remedy for the Republicans unilaterally refusing to consider a legitimately nominated Justice for nearly a year on the basis of something that was never a previously recognized norm or precedent (i.e. McConnell Rule). And a suggestion made by a former Senator (Biden) does NOT count as a precedent or a "rule" either because it never actually happened to Republicans. I'm not sure what the best way to handle it might be but there has GOT to be some way to remedy the situation, whether it be adding at least one seat to SCOTUS or somehow removing Gorsuch from the bench and replacing him with a Democratic-appointed Justice once we have another Democratic President (hopefully in 2021). Republicans got one more justice than they should have and that needs to be remedied.
