Constitutional Law Expert on Confirming ACB and Biden's Court-Packing
The Cato Institute's Ilya Shapiro joins the Breaking Boundaries podcast to discuss his new book, Supreme Disorder: Judicial Nominations and the Politics of America's Highest Court, and the future of the Supreme Court after Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation. He breaks down how the Supreme Court really works and explains what conservative legal theory, "originalism" or "textualism," actually means.
We sort through the alarmist claims to examine what a conservative Supreme Court will actually mean for the future of Roe v. Wade, gay marriage, Obamacare, and more. Then, we discuss Joe Biden and Kamala Harris's dangerous flirtation with "court-packing," expanding the Supreme Court to add more liberal judges.
