New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had an interview with CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday and said that Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer should retire at the end of the court’s term to allow President Biden to name a successor.
Ocasio-Cortez said the quiet part out loud on Sunday while she was discussing the House’s sweeping elections reform bill, H.R.1.
The Democrat-controlled House in March passed H.R. 1, a massive elections reform bill making it easier for Democrats to steal elections.
“It’s something that I’d think about but I would probably lean toward yes.
But yes, you’re asking me this question so I’ve just — I would give more thought to it, but I’m inclined to say yes,” Ocasio-Cortez responded.
“We have had very difficult experiences with making, I believe the opposite mistake, and especially if Senate Democrats are not going to pass reforms on HR 1, we cannot rely solely on a wish of winning elections, particularly in the Senate when voting rights are under attack in Georgia, Arizona, and Texas across the country.”
“And if we’re not going to pass HR 1 with the preemptive clauses that can roll some of that voter suppression attacks back, yeah, I believe that we should protect our Supreme Court and I bet that should be a consideration.”

The House Democrats previously introduced the “For the People Act of 2021” which will ensure Democrats can count ballots for days and days after an election until they have enough votes to win.
The Democrats used Covid as a vehicle to successfully steal the White House and the Senate (and possibly the House) with ballot harvesting, ballot drop boxes, mail-in ballots and by counting ballots in secret for several days after Election Day in 2020 so now they’re passing legislation to make it easier to steal every election going forward.
H.R.1. has stalled in the Senate where the Democrats have a slim majority with a 50-50 senate and Kamala Harris as the tiebreaker.
According to West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin, he does not support H.R.1 and he won’t end the filibuster so the bill is pretty much DOA in the senate.
