Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) has proposed a constitutional amendment to stop court-packing.
The constitutional amendment would keep the Supreme Court at only nine justices.
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), the head of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, introduced a proposed constitutional amendment on Thursday to maintain the size of the Supreme Court at nine justices.
The amendment, which has no path to succeed with Democrats controlling both chambers of Congress, is a response to a bill introduced by Democrats that proposes expanding the size of the Supreme Court from nine justices to 13.
“The Supreme Court must faithfully interpret the Constitution. We cannot allow it to fall victim to partisan attempts to pack it with far-left radicals,” Biggs said in a statement. “This desperate power-grab by Democrats will only further divide our Nation. I will not stand for a ‘Supreme Coup’ of our highest court.”
The amendment, a copy of which was obtained by The Hill, would state: “The Supreme Court of the United States shall be composed of nine justices consisting of one chief justice and eight associate justices.”
This comes after Democrats moved to add four Supreme Court Justices to the Supreme Court.
Biden has not yet come out and said he supported this court-packing effort.
However, he has not expressed that he is against it either.
In fact, he started a commission to study court-packing.
The Democrats at some point will attempt to pack the Supreme Court.
Every elected Republican must stand against this.
