Amy Coney Barrett, partisan hacksaw



Biden's commission on Supreme Court expansion is expected to issue a report that offers no conclusion about the need to expand the Supreme Court. The current Supreme Court needs to be recognized for what it is- a partisan force supporting the Republican Party's agenda, including the drive for minority rule and support for evangelical whims. Recent decisions such as Citizens United and Shelby County v Holder have crippled the ability of Americans to maintain a government that prioritizes equity and the well-being of the citizenry as a whole. The expansion discussion needs to be changed from "court packing" to "court unpacking" in recognition of the fact that the current court was successfully packed by McConnell and the forces supporting the Federalist Society.
