U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement regarding President Biden's executive order creating a commission on the size of the Supreme Court.
"This progressive court packing commission is going nowhere fast. President Biden knows that he doesn't even have the votes in his own party to pack the court; he knows that court packing is a non-starter with the American people; and he knows that this commission's report is just going to be a taxpayer-funded door stopper. What the President doesn't have is the courage to come out and flatly tell the radical left that he's not going to pack the Supreme Court."
