Opinion | Mitch McConnell: Democrats, leave the Supreme Court alone

For decades, Americans across the political spectrum agreed that President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s attempt at court-packing in 1937 was an embarrassment. In 2019, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg affirmed that “nine seems to be a good number.” Justice Stephen G. Breyer has echoed that view and warned that court-packing would erode public trust.

This year, both House and Senate Democrats have introduced actual legislation to do it.
