Joe Biden Promises Answer on Court Packing if GOP Confirms Barrett

Haris Alic 15 Oct 2020

Former Vice President Joe Biden is promising to unveil his position on packing the Supreme Court if the GOP confirms Amy Coney Barrett.

The Democrat nominee, who has refused to take a position on court packing since Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed last month, was asked during an ABC town hall whether he would support the initiative if elected in November. Biden began his response by asserting there were other ways to change the makeup of the Court without adding new justices, but conceded that he was not in favor of court packing, as it was likely to lead to a situation where both parties expand the court at every opportunity.

“I have not been a fan of court packing because then it just generates a [scenario] where whoever wins, it just keeps moving in a way which is going to be unmanageable,” the former vice president said.

When pressed on the topic, Biden repeated that he was “not a fan” of court packing, but clarified that his stance on the issue would ultimately be decided by the manner in which Republicans handled themselves in the Barrett hearings.

Joe does not even realize a political party does not confirm justices to the Supreme Court.

The GOP does not confirm.  It is the US Senate.

And what happens if someone like Joe Manchin votes to confirm Barrett?

Does that mean Joe is off the hook about court packing?
