This is wild!

Democrats currently control the House, Senate and Presidency but sadly that still isn’t enough for them because now they want the Supreme Court too.

According to The Hill, a group of House Democrats are now demanding for new legislation that will immediately add four new seats to the Supreme Court.

The Democrats are claiming that an “ultra right-wing” branch made up of conservatives have taken over the Supreme Court and things must change.

The group of eight Democrats that the are demanding for four new seats be added to the Supreme Court pointed to a number of decisions that the Supreme Court made that they deem are “unacceptable.” Some of the decisions they are unhappy with are the Supreme Court’s rulings on Miranda rights, New York Gun Control, religion in schools and the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health decision with ultimately overturned Roe.

The leader of the Democrat group calling to add four new seats, Rep. Hank Johnson said that the current Supreme Court is “a Supreme Court at crisis with itself and with our democracy” where “basic freedoms are under assault.”

Rep. Johnson added that the Supreme Court is “making decisions that usurp the power of the legislative and executive branches.”
