His position all but assures Republicans can move forward with filling the vacancy during an election year.

Egos have consequences. 

At any rate this means president Biden will likely push to expand the court so long as they can win the senate. 

As much as I detest Biden, this means that the importance of voting for Biden is more important than ever for that one aim. 

Can we all acknowledge that both parties will be hypocrites so long as it serves their interest for power? That's all this is. Our economic and political reality is a board game for a small group of wealthy people to play.

Maybe if Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer actually chose to fight...

EASY:
• Ask for unanimous consent on every vote for the next 2 months 

• Budget limit the right

• Limit the debt ceiling

HARD:

• Impeach Bill Barr, Kavanaugh (both possible if the filibuster’s in the dumpster) or even Trump again (might back fire badly)

PETTY:

• Threaten Joe Biden to anoint Hillary Clinton on the SC if they replace RGB (which they don’t even have to) lmao

 

Nancy Pelosi has, unsurprisingly, signaled she won’t do most of those, while not giving a plan herself. Paper tearing queen snapped  huh 😍 Currently think court packing should be the last option, but ofc its easiest so that’s the main narrative. Yall gotta support weak Republicans in the Senate races rn, not trynna get Mitch out (Specifically Arizona) Y’all will die trying. 

 

Y’all really about to lose the ACA and abortion for no reason?? 😭

Also, there is literally no way people can defend this. It's blatantly hypocritical. Anyone trying to defend this either has blind loyalty to the Republican Party or is just dumb as hell :smh:

Comparatively, sure, I guess, but considering Romney has been opposed to Trump for a long time, I expected him to be at the very least a liiiiiiiittttle more unbiased here.

The way Biden’s expansionophobic... and I kinda get it. Honestly what if a Hillary Clinton clone comes along and clumsily loses a future election? What’s to stop the republican president from adding like 5 judges? I just see a back and forth coming. Making hard decisions is essentially congress’ job, but they’ve become so lazy now they wanna push so much more than they need to, to the court.

Soo... essentially we replace the average person choosing how to sway america, to DC choosing how to sway America... its just another step in the loss of democracy huh 💀

None of those things will work. They all will make republicans stick together and give Trump a sure win.
