Republicans are blasting Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's plan to introduce legislation Thursday to expand the number of justices on the Supreme Court from nine to 13.

“Here are some facts: The Supreme Court isn’t supposed to be America’s super-legislature; Democrats don’t have some historic mandate in a 50-50 Senate to nuke the Court; the progressive activists who wrote this bill are high on their own supply; and a whole bunch of sane Democrats are quietly praying this thing dies. The court-packing bill is delusional," Republican Ben Sasse said.
