Restoring Balance to the Supreme Court
The Supreme Court has traveled far from the mainstream. If we don’t want dangerous decisions to become the norm, we must take action.
The Supreme Court’s decision to discard decades of settled precedent and overturn Roe was shocking and yet entirely unsurprising: this is a Supreme Court that has fled from the mainstream values held by the majority of our nation, choosing instead to represent only the far-right extremes and monied interests. If we don’t take drastic, sweeping action, all the rights we have come to know as fundamental–the right to access contraception, marry someone of the same sex, and more–could find themselves declared unconstitutional at any moment.
Jerry has been one of the leading government voices calling for systemic reform of the highest court in our land–reform that is necessary lest the Court lose any tiny shred of legitimacy it might still retain. That’s why he introduced legislation to expand the size of the Court: so that Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell’s radical, deeply unethical court-packing doesn’t slide our country to the extreme right for generations to come.
