Joe Biden has in recent days told more than half of Americans not to vote for him and said they don't deserve to know if he will pack the Supreme Court if elected to ensure rulings in favour of his Democratic Party.
Biden told CNN WKRC affiliate in Cincinnati: "I am not a fan of shortcut packaging, but I don't want to get off all this stuff". Biden was again asked about the issue on October 9 in Las Vegas, Nevada, and told KTNV that he was "not going to play his game", referring to Trump.
The former United States vice president said: "I've already spoken on - I'm not a fan of court packing, but I don't want to get off on that whole issue".
"The focus is why is he doing what he's doing now?"
Vice President Biden should answer whether he has plans fundamentally to reshape that institution by adding justices and undermining constitutional separation of powers principles. "We're going to bring a lot of super left people on the court, and we're going to get a whole other world". Paying taxes, cleaning toilets, and cleaning up after our dogs are all things people are not thrilled to do. Instead, it whets their appetite for dogged pursuit until they receive an answer. "If you don't find it out yet, the straight answer is they will pack the Supreme Court", Pence said during the interview.

After Cruz clashed with Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) over the reason why Democrats were absent from Wednesday's proceeding, he began to slam Democrats in favor of restoring voting rights to disenfranchised felons.
At present, the ticket appears to be split. If not, the electorate will have to take her response during the primary as final.
Before the hearings, Senate Democrats had expressed strong opposition to Barrett's nomination based largely on her past positions on abortion rights and the 2010 Affordable Care Act (ACA), popularly known as Obamacare. A bitter fight for the White House and control of Congress has many Americans seeking to avoid Election Day crowds amid coronavirus safety concerns. If the situation were reversed, Biden would not have proceeded any differently. "Forgiveness of sins, the virgin birth, resurrection from the dead, eternal life, there are a whole bunch of really, really insane ideas that are a lot weirder than some Catholic moms giving each other advice about parenting", Sasse continued.
Ginsburg was not alone in criticizing FDR's 1937 court-packing attempt.
The story has legs now, but its central theme has been transformed from whether court packing is sound policy into Biden's persistent refusal to take a position. They need no Democrat votes to confirm Barrett. The current ticket really represents two parties.
