WASHINGTON DC United States Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) published an op-ed today in the Boston Globe calling for the Supreme Court to be expanded by four or more seats to protect America’s democracy and restore faith in an independent judiciary committed to the rule of law.

Senator Warren described how the Supreme Court has been hijacked by Republican extremists to pack a 6-3 conservative supermajority for wealthy corporations and special interests and how the Court has consistently shown that it is not bound by the rule of law – reversing centuries-old campaign finance laws, destroying the power of organized labor, upholding a racist Muslim ban, undermining the right to an abortion, and gutting the Voting Rights Act twice.

Senator Warren called on Congress to exercise its constitutional authority to rebalance the size of the Supreme Court, which it has done seven times before, to restore integrity to a broken institution.

Senator Warren also announced that she will cosponsor the Judiciary Act of 2021, which would add four seats to the Supreme Court to restore balance, integrity, and independence to the extremist Court that has been hijacked, politicized, and delegitimized by Republicans.
