AOC Should Know Better…Her Take on SCOTUS Is Insane – Watch
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the progressive firebrand from New York, has been a vocal critic of the Supreme Court in recent months. She has called the court “illegitimate” and “out of control,” and she has vowed to do everything she can to limit its power.
Ocasio-Cortez has proposed a number of reforms to the Supreme Court, including expanding the number of justices, term limits, and a requirement that justices recuse themselves from cases involving their personal finances. She has also called for the court to be abolished altogether.
The “Washington Examiner” wrote this on AOC and the High Court: “Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested that Congress should use a variety of methods to limit the power of the Supreme Court.
In an appearance on CNN on Sunday, the New York Democrat argued that the Supreme Court was compromising its own legitimacy and that she believes Congress must act to limit its power.
‘I truly do,’ Ocasio-Cortez answered when asked if she believes the power of the Supreme Court justices should be limited. ‘And this is not a new — this is not a new development in history. This is part of our system of checks and balances. The courts, if they were to proceed without any check on their power, without any balance on their power, it would be a dangerous, authoritarian expansion of power in the Supreme Court.’
The New York Democrat then said that Congress should use every tool at its disposal against the Supreme Court, including investigations, subpoenas, and impeachments.”
Right-wing critics have accused Ocasio-Cortez of trying to “pack” the Supreme Court and of undermining the rule of law. They argue that her proposals would politicize the court and make it even more difficult to get a fair hearing for controversial cases.
