Leftists Blast Biden For Proposing a ‘Bipartisan Commission’ on Judicial Reform

'We certainly do not need a commission to tell us that Republicans are on the verge of stealing their second Supreme Court seat in four years...'

Liberals blasted Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden after he floated the idea of creating a bipartisan commission to come up with “reforms” for the Supreme Court.

Biden was asked about whether he’d support efforts to add seats to the Supreme Court. He has refused to answer the question directly, but said this week that he would rely on the recommendations of a commission when it comes to judicial reform.

Leftists, however, were not pleased.

“We don’t need to be promised a nice report about reform delivered to the White House, we need Vice President Biden to assure Americans that he will take bold action to ensure our courts don’t remain dominated by a right-wing fringe installed by Mitch McConnell to attack abortion rights, destroy health care reform, and dismantle our democracy,” Yvette Simpson, the CEO of the progressive group Democracy for America, said in a statement.

Adam Green, the co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, agreed and said there’s no way Biden’s commission will end up being bipartisan, since Republicans will try to block any proposed reforms.

“Joe Biden’s nonpartisan court commission is a gambit,” Green said, according to The Hill.

“He basically says that if you put conservative legal thinkers in a room with progressive ones, they will agree that Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans have politicized the courts in order to take away health care, worker rights, and voting rights,” Green continued. “And that America needs to unpack the courts and restore balance.”

A number of other media outlets, including the Associated Press, have run with radical left-wing activists’ talking points claiming, like Green, that Biden would merely be restoring balance for what they claim are stolen seats that they were rightfully entitled to fill.

“We certainly do not need a commission to tell us that Republicans are on the verge of stealing their second Supreme Court seat in four years and that the Roberts Court routinely sides with voter suppression schemes that advantage the Republican party,” said Brian Fallon, executive director of Demand Justice.

He said Biden’s proposal was a “punt” that avoided directly addressing the problem.

Instead of waffling on the issue, Biden should come out in support of court-packing, the liberals argued. If he does not, he’s risking losing the “momentum for serious reform.”

“The window when Democrats may have the power to implement Court reform may be short, and the timeline for a commission would only constrict the window further,” Fallon continued.
