The second segment of April 18th’s WCVB On The Record Sunday Roundtable with anchor Janet Wu. Mary Anne Marsh and Rob Gray ask if adding Justices to the Supreme Court is the right call. Last week, U.S. Senator Ed Markey proposed a bill to increase the Court’s seats from 9 to 13.
In light of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing last fall, many Americans believe a larger court would lead to more representative rulings. However, is Markey just playing politics? Either way, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has no plans to bring the bill to the floor.
Also, Forbes’ list of Massachusetts billionaires grew to 25 this year. With a collective net worth of $104 Billion, could this be the hit-list for President Joe Biden’s corporate tax hike?
Lastly, who in American politics had the best or worst week? On one hand, Rob Gray looks towards Hunter Biden. On the other, Mary Anne points back at the Trump campaign’s collusion with Russia.
