Democrats' court-packing push haunted by 2016 'We Need Nine' campaign

The Democratic push to expand the Supreme Court has led to opponents resurfacing Democrats' "We Need Nine" campaign in support of then-Judge Merrick Garland's 2016 nomination, which emphasized the need for nine justices on the high court.

Republicans on Thursday reminded Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., the lead Senate sponsor on a bill expanding the court from nine to 13 seats, of his 2016 position.

America’s unique gun violence problem, explained in 16 maps and charts

  America’s unique gun violence problem, explained in 16 maps and charts In the developed world, these levels of gun violence are a uniquely American problem. Here’s why.America is certainly an exceptional country when it comes to firearms. It’s one of the few countries in which the right to bear arms is constitutionally protected. But the relationship is unique in another crucial way: Among developed nations, the US is far and away the most homicidal — in large part due to the easy access many Americans have to firearms.

"This you?" asked Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., who posted a 2016 photo of Markey at a podium emblazoned with the hashtag "#WeNeedNine."

Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., also took a shot, saying he "thought we only needed nine?"

Markey was far from the only Democrat making the case that the Supreme Court needed nine justices in 2016. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said in 2016 that every day that "goes by without a ninth justice is another day the American people’s business is not getting done."

SOME PARTING WORDS

Lawrence Jones discussed the proposed addition of four new justices to the U.S. Supreme Court on "Fox News Primetime," declaring, "Tonight, the high court hijacking is underway."

"A far-left coalition of Democrats convened this afternoon to roll out their most radical agenda point yet – packing the Supreme Court," Jones said. "Their plan: create four new seats on the Supreme Court and let Joe Biden nominate anyone he wants. … But don’t you dare say they’re packing the court.

"Now, Joe Biden got the ball rolling when he convened the Supreme Court commission last week," he added. "But Democrats know this bill is a hard sell. Take Nancy Pelosi – she said she won’t even bring the bill to the floor for a vote. But Ed Markey thinks she’ll come around. But when she does, he’ll be ready to get rid of the filibuster and pass it anyway."
