Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said at her weekly press conference on Thursday that she has “no plans” to have the whole House vote on a new bill to pack the Supreme Court with four additional justices, but she thinks the proposal “should be considered.”
“I don’t know if that’s a good idea or a bad idea. I think it’s an idea that should be considered, and I think the president is taking the right approach to have a commission to study such a thing,” Pelosi said. “It’s a big step. It’s not out of the question. It has been done before.”
New York Democratic congressman Jerrold Nadler, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is introducing a bill that would increase the number of justices on the Supreme Court from nine to 13 (with the hope of giving Democratic appointees a 7–6 majority).
