A Growing Bipartisan Effort…
The “COALITION FOR AN INDEPENDENT SUPREME COURT”, led by Democratic former Attorney General of Virginia Andrew Miller, and backed by several former Democratic and Republican Members of Congress, and the immediate past Chair of the Council of State Governments is leading a bipartisan effort to persuade Congress to propose the “KEEP NINE” Amendment” to the U.S. Constitution which says:
“The Supreme Court of the United States shall be composed of nine Justices.”
2020 and the Court Packing Issue…
Every candidate running for federal and state office in 2020 should be asked to tell us where they stand on this Amendment that would ensure that no future Congress and President could change the size of the Supreme Court. Polling shows overwhelming 3-1 support.
No candidate should be able to say today “I oppose Court-Packing” without having to say where they stand on a Constitutional Amendment to permanently ban it.
Without an Amendment, when the left next wins control of Washington, they may abolish the Senate filibuster, add new states to pad their Senate majority. and pass a law to increase the size of the Court. That would undermine the independence of the Court and respect for the rule of law itself. We cannot let that happen, but we must act now, in 2020, to prevent it.
