Pelosi Says She Won’t Commit to Expanding Supreme Court, Backs Biden’s Commission
The Epoch Times ^ | April 15, 2021 | Zachary Stieber

A group of House Democrats were expected to announce a bill later in the day that would expand the nation’s top court from nine seats to 13, with members upset that six of the current members were nominated by Republican presidents, including three Trump appointees.

Asked if she would commit to bringing the bill to a vote, Pelosi said, “no.”

They floated the trial balloon and didn’t like what they saw. Now, they’re back peddling.

And if push comes to shove, Kav will always be an establishment lackey. And the jury is still out on Gorsuch and Barrett. At this point, there are only two solid, proven conservatives: Thomas and Alito.

Trumps three picks were disasters.
Barret and Kav were Bushies and Roberts pals.
Who set him up ?
Mitchy or Linda ?

The midterms must be bleak for the Vampire .

This is the democrat version of failure theater, except that unlike the GOP they eventually get what they’re looking for. Leftist dems introduce radical bill calling for radical changes to government. Pubbies go “REE!” and raise a stink. Moderates and establishment types wonder if the dems have gone too far this time and make some phone calls threatening to pull their donations if Pelosi and Schumer don’t get their ducks back into a row. Pelosi acts like the voice of reason to show that she still has control of the leftists... and later, once the emotion dies down, ends up passing 90% of what the radicals wanted.

Sounds like Nanzi's getting plenty of negative feedback from Dems ....
they're scared stiff all this "progress" is making being a Dem a huge liability.

They were testing the waters.

Every drop of the test pollutes the waters.

They're not backing off anything. DC and PR statehood, SCOTUS, the border. Pack the Congress, pack the Court, pack the electorate.

They've even packed the White House. Co-presidents.
