Biden Comission Divided Whether Expanding Supreme Court Is Good Idea

( – As Americans eagerly await pivotal US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) decisions this fall on issues like abortion and gun rights, President Joe Biden has a bipartisan commission looking into the workings of the nation’s highest court. A draft of discussion materials from the group shows that it will likely not be taking a hard stance on whether or not expanding the Supreme Court is a good idea, a notion currently pushed by the Left.

On Thursday, October 14, the White House released a draft of “discussion materials” from the SCOTUS commission. The papers highlighted that while some members agree with the Left’s desire to add justices to the court, many commissioners agreed it “is likely to undermine, rather than enhance, the Supreme Court’s legitimacy.”

Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) shared his opinion on the draft on Twitter:

While the released documents are not a final report, many Liberals lashed out against them anyway, as they did not directly support their desired plan. However, it’s clear from this draft there are plenty of lawmakers on the commission who understand the “real risk” of expanding the Supreme Court and will likely strongly condemn the idea in the final report.

At a time when the Supreme Court is already struggling with approval ratings and questions of biased judges, Americans need to rebuild trust in the judicial system and its justices. It’s up to this commission to help guide this rebuilding of trust at such a critical time in our nation’s history.
