AOC: ‘Expand the court.’

AOC hearing with FBI e1612395839691

After Republicans in the Senate confirmed the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court Monday night, many progressive Democrats were upset that the opposing party would push through a nominee weeks before the presidential election and called for measures to shift the now 6-3 conservative majority on the nation’s highest court.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, says it’s time to “Expand the court.” Court-packing has been a major point of contention ahead of Tuesday’s election. And former Vice President Joe Biden has yet to answer to whether he intends to do just that after harshly criticizing the President’s decision to nominate Justice Barrett.

Despite Biden’s silence, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez was clear that Democrats should be just as aggressive as Republicans right now in pushing their agenda through.

“Republicans do this because they don’t believe Dems have the stones to play hardball like they do,” Rep. Ocasio Cortez added. “And for a long time they’ve been correct. But do not let them bully the public into thinking their bulldozing is normal but a response isn’t. There is a legal process for expansion.”

Oops! NY Dem Accidentally Slips, Voting Bill Inspired by ‘Hugo Chavez’

Democratic Representative Hakeem Jeffries says in his speech that the infamous elections takeover bill is “inspired by Hugo Chavez.” He quickly said Cesar Chavez, but not before social media had the chance to blast him for the slip.

Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas quickly tweeted the video with the caption: “The Democrats; election takeover bill being inspired by Hugo Chavez is a classic Washington ‘gaffe’-accidentally telling the truth.”

New York Democrat Jeffries had previously said the voting rights bills must pass “by any means necessary” and supported “reforming a filibuster rule that is dripping in racist history.” Even President Biden admitted “I hope we can get this done. The honest-to-God answer is I don’t know whether we can get this done.”

On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wrote, “we cannot and we will not rest until this legislation is enacted into law” after the House passed a bill Thursday morning that combined the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act, which now has virtually zero chance of surviving the Senate.
