Pelosi Says She Will Not Bring Court-packing Legislation to the Floor

The big news regarding the Supreme Court this week was that Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) introduced court-packing legislation.  

Nadler and company were proposing an additional four justices to the court so there would be a liberal advantage. 

Shockingly, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced that she would not be bringing the legislation to the House floor for a vote.  

Sorry, Jerry 

It was only a few days ago that Joe Biden launched a commission to research options for the Supreme Court, among them, adding more justices to the bench.  

Well, Jerry Nadler and company decided to beat Biden to the punch, announcing his own legislation to pack the court with four additional justices.  

Pelosi, however, is shutting that down, at least for now.  

Pelosi stated“I support the president’s commission to study such a proposal, but frankly I’m not — right now, we’re back, our members, our committees are working. 

“We’re putting together the infrastructure bill and the rest. 

“I don’t know that that’s a good idea or a bad idea. 

“I think it’s an idea that should be considered and I think the president’s taking the right approach.” 

The White House also shut down the idea for now but did so rather gingerly 

When White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about the legislation, she stated, “[The commission] is going to come back to the president with a report on what their discussions are and what their findings are, so he’s gonna wait for that to play out and wait to read that report.” 

She later added, “The president believes it’s important to look at a range of points of view. 

“He believes that members of Congress have the right to put forward legislation on issues they support.  

“His view is that he wants to hear from this commission that has a range of viewpoints.” 

I would not get overly excited about this little stand by Pelosi, however, as we fully expect Joe’s commission to come back with the recommendation that the court add justices, so Pelosi could just table the legislation until the recommendation is made, then move forward.

        1. Michael,
          Wasn’t she the one that taught the rest of the Democrats in the HOUSE to
          lie about everyrthing?

  1. Yep Hooray for Dem division

    Best left alone cuz a Rep President could really muck up Nadler’s idea by putting 10 Conservative Justices on the court

  2. If there are is a bigger fool than Biden/ Obama his name is Nadler if he had any brains at all he would be dangerous! The people in his district should be ashamed to keep putting him in office!

    1. What you said about Naaaaader’s district was right on the nail head. Problem is that there are so many demonRATs that I feel do not deserve to be in Congress I would run out of allotted words on this post. AOC comes to mind and omar too but omar comes from a district that is anti-American anyway.

  3. Well, well, well, DEMOCRATS, how do you feel today ? Yes the party is over , it took only four months ,and now you are suffering from a DEMOCRAT PARTY HANGOVER . No your head is not being used as a nuclear bomb testing site. You may have puked yourself , or worse.
    Don’t worry , Pres Biden , and VP Kamala are backtracking as fast as they can .
    Selling arms to the Saudis – who stood by us in the oil and gas embargo of 1973 . That is correct , our big brother the SAUDS took on the other twelve OPEC members ,and made them say UNCLE.
    Don’t worry , a few more miles of TRUMP WALL ON THE BORDER may help us .
    Don’t worry the Trump cages for children, now the Biden steel cribs, are packed to the gills. VP Kamala is looking into it as soon as she stops eating pastries .
    Don’t worry , rising : oil, gas, home fuel prices; we are printing money 24/7/365 so you can burn it to keep warm . What did Pres Trump do? Where is that exec order? Reword it so it wont lookalike I plagiarized it , they got me on that before. Can I count on Pennsylvania in 2022, and more important 2024 ? Ho many well paying jobs did they lose ? Don’t worry, the inmates are running the asylum. ROFLMAO

  4. I think Biden and Harris should be arrested for kidnapping…….Sent shirts and the border is open……….Once the children started coming they put them in cages……. are transferring them all over the US…….Japanese detention center is one of them………Just like a kidnapper who offers candy and then takes them to cages………

  5. The way things are going should be an awakening. How can the dummocrats get away with what they are doing? Even if they try to pull off a 2022 robbery in 2022 there should be enough voters who are tired of everything to vote the dummycrats out.

  6. I guess once a sucker always a sucker. You actually believe Pelosi wouldn’t pack the Supremes? Please.

  7. Do not trust Pelosi, she is up to something. She did not tell you that the infrastructure bill is not for building anything. It is to tear down certain bridges with certain names and never rebuild them! Plus a bunch of other things!

When Joe Biden claimed in late April that “we’ve now gotten control,” border officials were encountering the most illegal immigrants in 20 years.

Was he ignoring warnings on the ground? Or was he lying to the American people?

Kamala Harris has been border crisis manager for over 50 days.

Meanwhile, border encounters reached a 20-year high, 1,500 illegal immigrants escape into the U.S. per day, and criminal activity has boomed.

And she still hasn’t even visited the border.
