    If the Democrats in the Senate have the numbers to pass a bill expanding the size of the Supreme Court, I don't see how they wouldn't have the numbers to approve the new justices as long as Biden doesn't choose someone totally off the wall.

    The harder thing is that to get such a bill passed they'd have to get rid of the filibuster, which would require every Democrat and the two Independents (who are basically Democrats, admittedly) to agree, and that's a step that I think people would be more uneasy about.
    Keep in mind that the last pick for a SCOTUS justice offered up by the Democrats and who was repeatedly billed as a moderate but, as we can see by his actions as Attorney General, he is anything but. He just declared that parents protesting against CRT (which just a couple months ago the left was insisting didn't even exist) being taught in their school are domestic terrorists and has sicced the FBI on them.

    I'm always still in trouble again
