The next Democratic President should expand the Supreme Court

Now that Neil Gorsuch has taken the Supreme Court seat stolen from President Obama, let us put aside the fantasy that someday we will be able to get along with the Republican Party like we used to.  We won’t.  It will be self-defeating to try.  When we are back in the majority, let’s plan on revising the Judiciary Act of 1869 to increase the number of Supreme Court Justices, and appoint Democratic nominees until the damage done by Trump is reversed.  They will call it court packing (and for once they will be correct), they will call it unprecedented, they will call it unfair.  And we should say nothing in response but “April 7, 2017.”
