马基, D-Mass, 众议院司法委员会主席杰罗德·纳德勒（Jerrold Nadler）, D-N.Y。, 和司法委员会成员Mondaire Jones, D-N.Y。, 和汉克·约翰逊（Hank Johnson）, D-Ga, 星期四宣布了他们的立法, which would expand the Supreme Court to 13 大法官.
There are currently nine seats on the court – a number that has remained the same since 1869.
立法, 虽然, is highly unlikely to pass, as Democrats can only lose two votes in the House and still be able to pass the bill. And in the Senate, they would need to get rid of the legislative filibuster to pass their court-packing bill.
“最终, we have to repeal the filibuster and then we can move this legislation, as they can move the legislation in the House of Representatives right now with a majority of the votes,” Markey said Thursday in unveiling the bill. “So we begin the case today.”
