The “court-packing” bill Democrats proposed Thursday to raise the number of Supreme Court seats from 9 to 13 has Republicans planning a counterattack on what they say is “a full assault on the independence of the federal judiciary.”
Colorado Rep. Ken Buck tweeted the efforts of Democrats to pass this bill will be in vain. “Republicans will stop them,” he says.

The bill, though unlikely to pass as Democrats now can only lose 2 votes in the House in order to pass new legislation, seeks to challenge a system that has been in place since 1869.
“This should scare every single American, regardless of where you stand politically,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said in an interview on Mornings with Maria. “This just goes to show how far the Democrat Party has moved. There almost are no longer common-sense or moderate Democrats elected. … It’s overtaking a branch of government simply to have your control over a nation. It must be the scariest thing I’ve ever heard them do.”
Sen. Mike Lee of Utah chimed in, radically opposed to the proposition.
Packing the court is an act of arrogant lawlessness. Those behind this effort spit in the face of judicial independence.
