Hiden (and Kamala and Tina and every Dem) still refusing to answer -- you have to vote for me to find out what I'll do... What do you think? Should we get keep of the current separation of powers where the courts, legislature and executive branch all balance each other with their ability to make decisions and our ability as voters to choose who represents us in those decisions; or should we remove the courts from the equation and hand that power over to the executive and legislative branches?

Take a look at history and what's happened when that has occurred -- Stalin in Russia, Hitler in Germany, Chavez in Venezuela. IMO, this is the biggest issue in this election. Removing the SC basically means removing the Constitution. Whatever the court rules, is the law of the land, whether it follows the Constitution or not. Pack the court, and you have no foundation for America any more, including any laws for future elections.

As Russia, Germany and Venezuela found out, once you give complete control to a pollical party with no limits, they do not give it back (we can't even get dictator Walz to step down from his power grab -- just think what happens with the elite libs get control...). Their is no "undo" in this deal. Once they have power, you won't be able to vote them out. There's a reason Putin wins every Russian election with something like 80% of the votes, and it's not because he's loved in Russia, it's because he has the power to rig the elections, and he and his elite are not going to give it up.

If you don't know your history, now would be really good time to learn.

Executive branch already has WAY to much power...

Agreed, this is why we have to hope the libs do not get the chance to pack the court. Remove the Supreme Court, and the Executive branch could do anything it wants. Issue any directive, and who's going to rule against it? Not a court that's been packed with the president's handpicked elite.

Packing the court....like refusing to bring a president's pick to a vote....so that you can make that pick later.

Yeah....sounds about right.
Geezus stocker, get over it.

If the WH, Senate and House were all the same party, would any legislation that they passed in a president’s lame duck year be “illegitimate“?

If the WH and Senate were the same party and the House the opposite party and the House wouldn’t vote to pass legislation that the Senate majority wanted, would that be unethical?

This is no different.

If your party doesn’t have a majority, you don’t get your way. Stop your incessant whining!

Why can't we get an answer to such a simple question?
You may be asking rhetorically, but the truth is Joe doesn’t want to piss off the extremists of his party to not favor it or the moderates of the party by supporting it. He needs them all to have a chance to win.

He thinks the MSM will cover for him and he can get away with it. Fortunately, we have some local reporters that won’t accept that.

Actually, it only takes a simple majority of the Senate and House to pass legislation to pack the SC court, along with the President signing the legislation.

The filibuster absolutely must go away. It should have gone away 190 years ago. It's destroying our country. Let's hope whomever holds the Senate ditches it in a couple months.

You're arguing against the same thing the Republicans are doing by strong-arming their SCOTUS nomination.

Joe says voters do not deserve to know his position.
Voters do not deserve an answer.
And the left says Trump is a dictator?

Two sets of rules, two sets of standards, for left politicians and right politicians, as per our nation's media. It's not like we haven't known this for 10+ years now. It's not exactly a surprise that the Harris-Biden ticket is being given a free pass on this one

Biden says what the Republicans are doing right now “is not constitutional” in nominating and confirming the SC Justice. Seriously...he said that.

Right. So when the dems expand the court....I suppose you'll shrug it off.

Lol.

How long until he gets beaten back into submission, forced to get back in line?
I think Jake is hoping for a job on Fox News (to jump off that sinking CNN ship) where a diversity of opinion is allowed and challenged. He still has a ways to go, but asking a tough question to Biden’s spokesperson is a good start.

pack the court. Get PR and DC statehood, 4 more senators.

Republicans have been cheating for years now, and unquestionably stole a SCOTUS seat. Give it back to em in spades.

This is the latest tactic from the left. Redefine the term court packing. They are utilizing their complicit MSM to push it.
