TPPA Launches Petition to Support Senate Republican Proposals to Prevent Court Packing


Senate Republicans have introduced two proposals to prevent “court packing.” The first proposal would prevent the expansion or contraction of the Supreme Court by constitutional amendment, also known as the “Keep Nine” amendment. The second proposal would stop Democrats from unilaterally passing any court-packing legislation in the U.S. Senate. Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) has launched a petition in support of the proposals.  TPPA  Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today.

“Democrats are determined to ‘pack’ the Supreme Court and politicize our judicial system, turning the highest court in the land into a rubber stamp for the executive branch. Congress needs to take action, and needs to do it now. The constitutional and legislative proposals introduced by six Republican Senators this week are exactly what we need. Their proposals will keep the number of Supreme Court justice at nine – a number that’s been in effect for over 150 years. TPPA is doing its part, launching a petition in support of their proposals. We’re educating and motivating the grassroots, because the future of the Supreme Court is truly at stake.  We thank Senators Cruz, Tillis, McSally, Wicker, Loeffler, and Hyde-Smith for their leadership on this issue.”
