The Left's 'Grand' Idea: Expand SCOTUS
The New York Times’ David Leonhardt writes, “Progressives can still win many of these issues. They simply will have to do so in a small-d democratic way, by winning elections.” But that’s the problem — the Left’s radicalism is a major turnoff to voters. Yet Democrats continue to believe that the Supreme Court’s makeup, not the Left’s radicalism, is the problem. It’s not “fairness” leftists are after; it’s control via judicial diktat.
No wonder Thomas Jefferson warned, "The Constitution ... is a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary which they may twist and shape into any form they please." Faris says "saving the court's legitimacy requires breaking some norms." On the contrary, expanding the Court with jurists who desire to turn the Constitution into "a mere thing of wax" will further undermine its legitimacy.
