Congressman David Rouzer (R-NC) released the following statement upon the House introduction of Representative Mike Gallagher’s (WI-08) constitutional amendment that would prevent court packing by capping the size of the Supreme Court at nine justices, which Congressman Rouzer has joined as an original cosponsor:
“Democrats’ attempt to pack the Supreme Court is an undemocratic, partisan power grab that even the very liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued against. This effort is all about advancing the Democrat Party’s very dangerous socialist and liberal policy agenda at the expense of our great republic.
“For more than 150 years, the Supreme Court has been comprised of nine justices. We must amend the Constitution to ensure it remains this way.”
