On Monday the Senate confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Immediately following, Democratic Representatives, also known as “the squad,” wasted no time bulldozing their progressive, liberal plans through to social media. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took to Twitter, writing “Expand the court.”
Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) re-tweeted her buddy AOC’s post, then preyed upon liberals’ disdain for the electoral college writing, “Remember that Republicans have lost 6 of the last 7 popular votes, but have appointed 6 of the last 9 justices. By expanding the court we fix this broken system and have the court better represent the values of the American people”
Not to be outdone by her fellow squad members, Michigan Democrat Rashida Tlaib jumped in on the Twitter fun, adding, “We are going to take back the White House & Senate next week with a resounding mandate from the people to fight back against Trump’s illegitimately stacked judiciary. We must expand the Court if we’re serious about the transformational change the people are crying out for.”
Thus far, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his vice presidential running mate and senator from California, Kamala Harris have “refused to say whether or not they will seek to expand and pack the Supreme Court if elected” reported the Daily Caller.
The behavior of the squad is pretty standard for Democrats as of late. On Thursday of last week, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to advance Barrett’s nomination to the Senate floor to hold the full confirmation vote. Zero Democrats attended the vote because they were boycotting Barrett’s vote. Instead, they “filled their seats in the committee with life-sized posters of people who could be hurt if the Affordable Care Act were to be repealed” reported the Daily Caller.
Barrett was confirmed Monday with a 52-48 vote. One Republican, Susan Collins of Maine, was the only one who split from their party and voted against Barrett’s confirmation. Democratic Senator Mazie Hirono from Hawaii maturely voted by sternly declaring “hell no” into the Senate mic and gave a thumbs down.
