Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said during an interview this week that voters do not deserve to know his position on supreme court packing.
Imagine what it would be like if a person running for the highest elected office in the most-powerful nation on earth was asked a policy question about his administration’s stance on the Supreme Court, and his actual answer was that “voters don’t deserve to know” what his position is. That’s exactly what Joe Biden did this week when asked if whether or not he would pack the Supreme Court. Voters don’t deserve to know. Still confused about who to vote for?
You know what Donald Trump will do, we have had four years of his administration already, but what you don’t know is what Joe Biden would do should he win. If voters “don’t deserve to know” whether or not he will pack the court, what else will the voters “not deserve” in a Biden administration? Joe Biden has already promised to raise your taxes, Joe Biden has already promised to make mask wearing a federal mandate, Joe Biden has already promised to allow the murder of babies on their due date. If these are some of his stated promises, the thought of what his promises are that voters “don’t deserve to know” about should make your blood run cold. Literally.
‘No, They Don’t’: Joe Biden Dismisses Idea that Voters ‘Deserve’ to Know Court Packing Stance
FROM BREITBART NEWS: “I know you said yesterday you aren’t going to answer the question until after the election, but this is the number one thing that I’ve been asked about from viewers in the past couple of days,” the interviewer stated.
“Well, you’ve been asked by the viewers who are probably Republicans who don’t want me continuing to talk about what they are doing to the court right now,” Joe Biden responded.
When asked if the voters “deserve” to know his answer, Biden said, “No, they don’t.”
“I’m not going to play his game. He’d love me to talk about — and I’ve already said something on packing the court, court packing,” Joe Biden continued:

“He’d love that to be the discussion instead of what he’s doing now. He’s about to make a pick in the middle of an election — first time it’s ever been done, first time in history it’s ever been done.”
Biden’s claim, that it is the “first time in history” that it has ever been done, is false.
As the National Review’s Dan McLaughlin wrote:
Twenty-nine times in American history there has been an open Supreme Court vacancy in a presidential election year, or in a lame-duck session before the next presidential inauguration. (This counts vacancies created by new seats on the Court, but not vacancies for which there was a nomination already pending when the year began, such as happened in 1835–36 and 1987–88.) The president made a nomination in all twenty-nine cases. George Washington did it three times. John Adams did it. Thomas Jefferson did it. Abraham Lincoln did it. Ulysses S. Grant did it. Franklin D. Roosevelt did it. Dwight Eisenhower did it. Barack Obama, of course, did it. Twenty-two of the 44 men to hold the office faced this situation, and all twenty-two made the decision to send up a nomination, whether or not they had the votes in the Senate.
Nineteen times between 1796 and 1968, presidents have sought to fill a Supreme Court vacancy in a presidential-election year while their party controlled the Senate. Ten of those nominations came before the election; nine of the ten were successful, the only failure being the bipartisan filibuster of the ethically challenged Abe Fortas as chief justice in 1968.
Earlier in the week, Biden said voters would know his position on packing the court after the presidential election.
During a Senate speech in 2005, however, Biden famously referred to court packing as a “power grab.”
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has also refused to say if a Biden-Harris administration would pack the court, dodging the question during Wednesday’s vice presidential debate. She said last year, though, that she was “absolutely” open to the idea.
