Biden Unveils His Plans For The Supreme Court If He Wins
Biden and Kamala Harris have been trying to hide the fact that they want to pack the Supreme Court. During the first debates, Biden and Harris both refused to answer whether they would add more justices. But now Biden seems to be changing his tune and has decided to sort of answer the question. Biden claims he wants to create a commission to decide how to change the Supreme Court. In other words, he has finally admitted that he intends to pack it.
During an interview on 60 Minutes, Biden had the following to say about the Supreme Court.
“If elected, what I will do is I’ll put together a national commission of bipartisan commission of scholars, constitutional scholars, Democrats, Republicans, liberal, conservative,” Biden told CBS News. “And I will ask them to over 180 days come back to me with recommendations as to how to reform the court system because it’s getting out of whack, the way in which it’s being handled. And it’s not about court-packing. There’s a number of other things that our constitutional scholars have debated and I’d look to see what recommendations that commission might make."
When asked directly if he is going to pack the court he still was wishy-washy.
"No, whether — there’s a number of alternatives that are — go well beyond packing.”

“A majority of Americans oppose calls for Democrats to ‘pack’ the Supreme Court with additional justices if Republicans succeed in confirming Amy Coney Barrett and Joe Biden wins the presidency, according to a recent poll of likely voters."
“Among likely voters, 58% said Democrats should not look to increase the size of the Supreme Court, according to the results of a poll conducted from Oct.15-18 by The New York Times and Siena College. Just 31% said they were in favor of court-packing, while 11% of responders were undecided.”
So it's uncertain as to whether Biden is saying that packing the court is just the start or if he is looking for other alternatives to picking Justices for the court. But still, it looks like the SCOTUS is in for some big changes if Biden finds a way to beat Trump.
