Democrats’ Court-Packing Plans: A Threat To Your Rights?

This episode of What’s Ahead exposes the real reasons that Democrats will try to pack the Supreme Court with as many as six new compliant justices if they sweep the November elections. Democrats realize they aren’t likely to block an immediate replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which will give the so-called conservatives a solid majority on the High Court. 

Their real fear is not an overturning of Roe v Wade—protestations to the contrary, the Court is not oblivious to public opinion—but rather that most Justices won’t go along with far-left Democrats’ desires to restrict First Amendment free-speech guarantees, to gut Second Amendment gun rights and to impose unprecedented regulatory burdens on commerce and individuals.

Franklin Roosevelt tried to pack the Court in 1937, when he was at the height of his political powers. The public was appalled, and FDR’s scheme went down to overwhelming and ignominious defeat.

Will we be so fortunate this time?

Steve Forbes is Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Media. Steve’s newest project is the podcast “What’s Ahead,” where he engages the world’s top newsmakers, politicians and pioneers in business and economics in honest conversations meant to challenge traditional conventions as well as featuring Steve’s signature views on the intersection of society, economic and policy. Steve helped create the recently released and highly acclaimed public television documentary, In Money We Trust?, which was produced under the auspices of Maryland Public television. The film was inspired by the book he co-authored, Money: How the Destruction of the Dollar Threatens the Global Economy – and What We Can Do About It. Steve’s latest book is Reviving America: How Repealing Obamacare, Replacing the Tax Code and Reforming The Fed will Restore Hope and Prosperity co-authored by Elizabeth Ames (McGraw-Hill Professional). Steve writes editorials for each issue of Forbes under the heading of “Fact and Comment.” A widely respected economic prognosticator, he is the only writer to have won the highly prestigious Crystal Owl Award four times. The prize was formerly given by U.S. Steel Corporation to the financial journalist whose economic forecasts for the coming year proved most accurate. In both 1996 and 2000, Steve campaigned vigorously for the Republican nomination for the Presidency. Key to his platform were a flat tax, medical savings accounts, a new Social Security system for working Americans, parental choice of schools for their children, term limits and a strong national defense. Steve continues to energetically promote this agenda.
