The Supreme Court is about to face a big shake up if these Democrats get their way

The Supreme Court is the one power center in Washington, D.C. that the Democrats do not control.

Many on the Left are furious.

Now the Supreme Court is about to face a big shake up if these Democrats get their way.

Liberal justice Stephen Breyer is the oldest member of the Supreme Court.

Bill Clinton appointed Breyer to the court in 1996.

With Joe Biden in the White House and Democrats holding a majority in the Senate only by virtue of Kamala Harris casting the tie breaking vote, many on the Left are demanding Breyer step aside so Biden can appoint a younger leftist.

Democrats want to avoid what happened when Ruth Bader Ginsburg did not retire after Barack Obama was re-elected in 2012 and passed away in 2020 allowing Donald Trump to pick her replacement.

“My goodness: Have we not learned our lesson?” socialist New York Democrat Congressman Mondaire Jones told Cheddar News.

Other Democrats are wary of pressuring Breyer

“I’m not sure that that kind of pressure on Justice Breyer is actually helpful in his decision making,” Rhode Island Democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse told CNN. “I don’t know the man well enough, but I know plenty of people whose backs would get up when subjected to that kind of pressure. And it’s certainly plausible.”

Breyer’s associates are hearing this pressure campaign and not happy.

CNN reported that “those close to Breyer are infuriated by the retirement pressure from Demand Justice and others, even though they think he will still make his decision based on concern for the well-being of the institution and not because of pressure from liberal groups.”

Democrats are worried they could lose their Senate majority next year and that a Republican Senate majority could keep a seat vacant until after the 2024 Presidential election in hopes a Republican defeats Biden.

That’s why many on the Left want Breyer to retire now.
