(PoliticalLookout.com)- After Senate Republicans voted to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett at the newest Supreme Court justice, Democrats and media pundits lost their minds and immediately began pushing extreme measures to counteract a perceived conservative bias on the Supreme Court.
Justice Coney Barrett was officially confirmed on Monday, which is in line with what the Constitution says about the nomination and confirmation of judges. The president did his duty in nominating a justice, and as is the norm, the Senate voted to confirm the judge as they represent the same party as the president.
Far-left Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joined her socialist and radical progressive colleagues in tweeting “Expand the court,” in response.
Republicans do this because they don’t believe Dems have the stones to play hardball like they do. And for a long time they’ve been correct. But do not let them bully the public into thinking their bulldozing is normal but a response isn’t. There is a legal process for expansion.

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who has been heavily criticized for making anti-Semitic comments in the past, echoed the message. Omar claimed that Republicans have no authority as they have lost popular votes in the past, seemingly not understanding how the Electoral College and Congressional elections work.
Remember that Republicans have lost 6 of the last 7 popular votes, but have appointed 6 of the last 9 justices.
By expanding the court we fix this broken system and have the court better represent the values of the American people.

Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris threatened Republicans in a tweet, too. She incorrectly claimed that Republicans “denied the will of the people” by confirming Amy Coney Barrett, and then said, “We won’t forget this.”
Today Republicans denied the will of the American people by confirming a Supreme Court justice through an illegitimate process—all in their effort to gut the Affordable Care Act and strip health care from millions with pre-existing conditions.
We won’t forget this.

Polls show that the majority of Americans support the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett, meaning the Republicans actually followed through on the will of the people. Only 28% of the public opposed the confirmation of Judge Barrett according to one study.
Democratic House Speaker was no better, either. Immediately after Barrett’s confirmation, the notorious anti-Trump legislator said that the Democrats should consider packing the Supreme Court as well as the District Courts.
Directly after ACB is confirmed Nancy Pelosi suggests packing the Supreme Court AND District Courts:
