Supreme Court Expansion Raised to at Least Ten

Supreme Court of The United States

In light of a number of unanimous (9-0) Supreme Court rulings this session, the Biden Administration has decided the Supreme Court should be expanded by ten. It seems The Democrat Appointees no longer identify as Democrats and instead have identified with the constitution.

The Biden Administration previously wanted to weight the votes of Democratic appointees. Each Democrat appointee would have 2 votes versus the Republican appointees who would get only one. This proposal would apparently not work because recent unanimous decisions would still be unanimous just more unanimous.

The average Supreme Court confirmation takes about 70 days, from presidential nomination to Senate vote, according to data from the Congressional Research Service. The longest confirmation took about four months, and the shortest took just 19 days. The House of Representatives has averaged 146.7 “legislative days” a year since 2001, according to records kept. That’s about one day of work every two and a half days. The Senate, on the other hand, was in session an average of 165 days a year over the same time period.

Optimistically, that would mean 2 nominees could be approved in a Congressional Session. Thus, it would take 5 years to nominate and confirm 10 Justices and that presumes the Senate and President were of the same party (Democrat) as when nominations began.

We here at DogfacePonia have another potential plan – just keep adding Justices indefinitely. When your party is in power just add as many as possible. This way it can be never ending and if we lose one there is always another. Another huge advantage would be the Senate could spend all it’s time approving Supreme Court Candidates. This way they won’t have as much time to pass laws that will ruin our Republic.
