WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) spoke on the Senator floor in opposition to Senate Democrats’ legislation that would immediately expand the U.S. Supreme Court to 13 justices.
“This is a transparent and foolish ploy for power that would undermine trust in the fair application of the law and delegitimize the highest court in the land,” said Sen. Moran. “Rather than working across the aisle, Senate Democrats are more interested in eliminating the filibuster to pass their agenda and stacking the court to prevent their agenda from being struck down as unconstitutional.”
“The checks and balances of our Constitution work,” continued Sen. Moran. “I implore Senate Democrats to have the same faith in these constitutional guardrails as I do; to have the same faith in the independence and fairness of the Supreme Court that the majority of Americans have; and to believe that we can work together on behalf of the Americans we serve without resorting to acts that will damage us all.”
