The following article, Biden: GOP Is ‘Packing the Court Now’ — What They’re Doing Is ‘Not Constitutional’, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Because Democrats don’t control either the Senate or the Executive Branch, liberals like Joe Biden believe what Republicans are doing is unconstitutional. These people don’t know how to tell the truth.
As if Dems wouldn’t place left-leaning judges on the courts if they were in power, right? Would it be constitutional then, Joe?
From The Daily Wire:
Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden made false claims on Saturday while speaking to reporters before he boarded his campaign plane, saying that Republicans are the ones engaged in court-packing and claiming that what the Republicans are doing is not constitutional.
Biden made the remarks while standing right next to the plane while it was running, making it very difficult to hear his responses.
He said, “The only court packing that’s going on right now is going on with the Republicans packing the court now. It’s not constitutional what they’re doing […] focus on what’s happening right now. The fact that is that the only packing going is this court […] by the Republicans after the vote has already begun. I’m gonna stay focused on it […] don’t take your eyes off the ball here.”
Biden is again asked why voters don’t deserve to know his views on court packing. He responds: “The only court packing going on right now is going on with Republicans packing the court right now … I’m going to stay focused on it so we don’t take our eyes off the ball here." pic.twitter.com/E9H5rIXMX2

If Republicans confirm Judge Barrett, end the filibuster and expand the Supreme Court.

Here are more reactions from Congressional liberals on Barrett’s nomination…
Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court is the product of a corrupt, illegitimate process that undermines the will of the American people. Alongside her dangerous, ultra-conservative record, she’s not fit to serve on the Supreme Court.

Judge Barrett’s views would harm real lives—real people—in real ways, from children with pre-existing conditions to women who just want to be able to decide when & how to have a family. I’m fighting for them.

Donald Trump's nominee is a direct threat to the Affordable Care Act, reproductive choice, and so many other liberties we hold sacred.
We can't be silent as he tries to rush a Supreme Court Justice through the Senate.
The American people deserve to have their voices heard.

It doesn’t matter who the Supreme Court nominee is; it matters who’s behind this pick. And the answer is special interests out to capture our courts.

1. This entire process is illegitimate.
2. We knew that anyone on Trump’s list would represent a grave threat to Roe & ACA—including Barrett. Now GOP Senators will have to decide if they are truly willing to take away millions' rights & health care in the middle of a pandemic.
— Senator Jeff Merkley (@SenJeffMerkley) September 26, 2020
It is clear why Republicans have reversed their position from 2016—they want to use the Supreme Court to overturn the ACA.
What’s at stake with this nomination is the fate of affordable, quality health care and pre-existing conditions protections for millions of Americans.

President Trump has guaranteed that Judge Barrett will deliver on conservative priorities. In doing so, she would stand as the polar opposite to the vision of America that Justice Ginsburg fought for decades to achieve.

I will not vote for a nominee to a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court until after the American people have voted and our next President and new Senate have taken office. pic.twitter.com/olR4sOuBvT

No big deal, just Senator Mazie Hirono being a religious bigot, questioning whether Amy Coney Barrett can set aside her "closely-held views" as a judge. pic.twitter.com/FI4lH7LtJM
