They’re also angered by the GOP’s perceived hypocrisy, given that Republicans previously blocked former President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee during an election year. In their furious response, several top congressional Democrats have openly called for “packing the court.” They want to rewrite the rules to expand the number of justices on the Supreme Court – so they can add more like-minded judges and skew its balance.
