    At least not my recommendations to increase the size of the SCOTUS. There's a clear path to increasing the size of the Court that is Constitutional and legal.

    Congress has failed in its duty to ensure the size of the Cort is adequate to represent all the diversity in the Nation. Unlike FDRs attempt to pack the Court, my call is not agenda driven.

    The Supreme Court has become the final arbiter and vehicle to adapt the original system of laws created at the nations founding to our modern day reality. The SCOTUS should represent all the diversity of the Nation, but until quite recently it was exclusively male and exclusively white. Right now, Catholics and Jews almost have a total lock on the Court's makeup.

    I do not believe this is 'healthy' for democracy, given the role of the Court.
