Dem Vows To Stop Far Left From Ruining The Supreme Court
We are not sure who is going to lead us yet, but at least now we can be sure that the Senate, even if it ends up with Dem majority, is not going to destroy the Supreme Court. Dem Senator Joe Manchin swears that he will not vote to end the filibuster in the Senate and he will not vote to pack the courts. Manchin said as much during an interview with FOX's Brett Baier.
“Well, there’s a lot of people that are concerned. There’s a lot of fear tactics that are being used right now,” Manchin said. “If both of the Georgia senators were elected from the Democratic Party, then that would be 50/50, if both Dan Sullivan and Thom Tillis win; 50/50 means there’s a tie. But if one senator does not vote on the Democratic side, there is no tie and there is no bill.”
“So, I commit to you tonight and I commit to all of your viewers and everyone else that’s watching, I want to lay those fears, I want to rest those fears for you right now, because, when they talk about whether it be packing the courts or ending the filibuster, I will not vote to do that,” Manchin continued. “I will not vote to pack the courts. I think — and I will not vote to end the filibuster. Bret, this system, the Senate, this so unique body in the world, it was made to work together in a bipartisan way. And once you start breaking down those barriers, then you lose every reason that we are the institution that we are, the most deliberative body.”
“So, I want to lay those fears to rest, that that won’t happen, because I will not be the 50th Democrat voting to end that filibuster or to basically stack the court,” he added. “And then all the other things you’re hearing about, Bret, also, is — defund the police. I don’t know of any of the Democrats in the caucus that are for defunding the police. We are not for that whatsoever. And when they talk about basically Medicare for All, we can’t even pay for Medicare for some. It doesn’t make any sense at all. We have got to fix the Affordable Care Act we have. And I think our Republican — moderate Republicans will work with us to now repair what needs to be repaired.”

This is great news. Biden has already said he wants to basically revamp the Supreme Court with a special committee he plans to put together when elected. But if Manchin is not on board, then the Senate will be powerless to pass such a bill to change the court. So at least we can forward knowing the Supreme Court is safe from Dem meddling for the most part.
