Rubio introduces amendment to keep SCOTUS at nine

Florida Senator Marco Rubio announced that he has introduced a Constitutional amendment that would keep the Supreme Court at nine justices.

Twelve other Republican Senators join Rubio in supporting the amendment, including Sens. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Mike Lee of Utah, Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, and Todd Young of Indiana.

Rubio made this statement:

The Democrats’ court packing proposal represents the latest shortsighted effort to undermine America’s confidence in our institutions and our democracy. America’s institutions are far from perfect. But over the past two centuries, they have provided a framework for our nation to become the most dynamic, most vibrant, and most exceptional nation in all of human history. To prevent the delegitimizing of the Supreme Court, I am introducing a constitutional amendment to keep the number of seats at nine. Our institutions matter. Our Constitution matters. And we should fight to protect them.
