The Democrat party’s two candidates, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, continue to not answer the question of whether their plan is to pack the Supreme Court. Court-packing is the only area where both Biden and Harris refuse to answer the question.
Evidently, it’s easier to dodge the question than it is to come out 20-something days before the election and say, “yes, we are giving this serious consideration.” Biden was asked for the umpteenth time Thursday where he stands on the matter. For the umpteenth time, he refused to say.
“You’ll know my opinion on court-packing when the election is over,” he told reporters, alleging that the issue is a distraction from Democrats’ false assertion that Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court is being “rushed.”
During the debate Wednesday night, Harris was asked by Vice-President Pence and she wouldn’t give an answer. She tried to avoid the question by saying Trump was racist because he hadn’t appointed any blacks in his nominations.
It has been like this with Harris and Biden since Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on Sept. 18, back when court-packing became a serious 2020 issue in Democratic circles. The Democratic ticket simply will not say one way or the other where they stand on the issue.
Biden and Harris have answered every other question, and I might add, when they could, especially Harris. She is in way over her head and we are one heartbeat away from her being president if the Democrats’ win.
The refusal to answer the question is, politically speaking, to admitting in the lead-up to Election Day that they are giving serious consideration to fundamentally transforming one of the three branches of the U.S. government.
