    Biden PUNTS: Will create 'court reform commission,' options go 'well beyond' court packing

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden announced in a video clip released Thursday morning that he will create a national commission tasked with reforming the court system.

    Biden’s statement comes as he has repeatedly refused to say whether he supports far-left efforts to add judges to the Supreme Court in order to tilt the balance of power of America’s judicial system toward the Democratic Party.

    “If elected, what I will do is I’ll put together a national commission of bipartisan commission of scholars, constitutional scholars, Democrats, Republicans, liberal, conservative,” Biden told CBS News. “And I will ask them to over 180 days come back to me with recommendations as to how to reform the court system because it’s getting out of whack, the way in which it’s being handled. And it’s not about court packing. There’s a number of other things that our constitutional scholars have debated and I’d look to see what recommendations that commission might make.”

    “A majority of Americans oppose calls for Democrats to ‘pack’ the Supreme Court with additional justices if Republican succeed in confirming Amy Coney Barrett and Joe Biden wins the presidency, according to a recent poll of likely voters,” Fox News reported. “Among likely voters, 58% said Democrats should not look to increase the size of the Supreme Court, according to the results of a poll conducted from Oct.15-18 by The New York Times and Siena College. Just 31% said they were in favor of court-packing, while 11% of responders were undecided.”
