Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) stated the Supreme Court should undergo “reforms” or be abolished “for the sake of the planet.”
Moments after President Joe Biden announced in Europe that he supports a carveout to codify Roe v. Wade, a tactic that Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) has opposed, Ocasio-Cortez stated a “filibuster carveout is not enough.”
We need to reform or do away with the whole thing, for the sake of the planet,” she claimed, retweeting a Thursday ruling by the Supreme Court that reduces the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) scope of authority to regulate emissions.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calls for expanding the Supreme Court and eliminating the filibuster.
It should be noted that the United States Constitution mandates a Supreme Court, so following through on Ocasio-Cortez’s demand would be illegal unless a constitutional amendment was passed to terminate the institution.
Ocasio-Cortez also retweeted a statement by Kate Aronoff, a staff writer at The New Republic, who stated, “Minority rule … is a threat to life on earth.”
