Well, they said they wouldn’t….until they are.  Today debates to add DC as a state and the Senate is working the SCOTUS packing angle.

This may be some of the most shameless examples of a power grab in my life time and maybe since reconstruction. 

So if the Dems get their wish of adding 4 seats to the court the GOP will retaliate if they get power and add another 4…This is nuts.

As for DC…It will be deemed unconstitutional under Article I Section 8

https://constitution.congress.gov/browse/article-1/section-8/

Only a Constitutional Amendment can make DC a State.  They should have tried Puerto Rico or some other liberal territory.

Again, if the Dems add a few States to state the Senate and House the should the GOP somehow gain power they will add two state to rebalance.  Do you want to see a Norther Utah and Southern Utah?

It’s clearly a power grab and a disregard for the Constitution which clearly lays out DC as neutral.
