Republicans still don’t seem to understand that expanding the Supreme Court is completely constitutional, which is why Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-Wisc.) found himself being mocked and schooled this week.

Democrats have been seeking to pass legislation that would add four seats to the high court in an effort to restore balance and match the number the appellate courts in our country, which has historical precedent.

The bill is in response to the Republican scheme to pack the court system with unqualified cronies who will do the party’s bidding rather than follow the Constitution and established precedent. For instance, the 6-3 conservative majority recently took up an abortion case that could result in the striking down of Roe v. Wade, which has protected a woman’s right to choose since 1973.

On Tuesday, Grothman demonstrated that he has no clue how expanding the Supreme Court works by declaring that Biden has “no authority to pack the court.”

In reality, Biden does have such authority. Congress has the power to expand the number of seats on the court. In fact, the number of seats has been changed multiple times in our history, the last time being in 1869. So, expanding it again is long overdue. Once Congress passes the law to expand the court, the president would be responsible for filling the seats, hopefully with competent and qualified nominees.

Twitter users not only schooled Grothman, but they also pointed out that Republicans have been packing the court for years now.
