Reader Opinion: Court packing
Court packing is being brought up now so that Democrats in Congress can possibly have their way on issues.

Court packing is being brought up now so that Democrats in Congress can possibly have their way on issues such as abortion “rights.”
If court packing is allowed now, what’s to stop a different party, if in charge in the future, from adding even more justices to the Supreme Court, so that they could have their way?
Where would it end?
