Democrats might be disappointed in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after she rejects the idea of packing the Supreme Court from 9 members to 13.
Democrat Rep. Jerry Nadler wanted to bring this to fruition, but Pelosi says she does not support this right now and has "no plans" to bring it to the floor for a vote.
Pelosi later says it's an idea to be considered, but right now is not the time, as reported on The Hill:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday she has "no plans" to bring a Democratic-led bill to expand the Supreme Court to the House floor for a vote, while saying such an idea is "not out of the question."
Pelosi was asked during a press briefing if she supported a bill brought forward by House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) to expand the Supreme Court by four seats and if she would bring it to the House floor.
"No. I support the president's commission to study such a proposal, but frankly I'm not — right now, we're back, our members, our committees are working. We're putting together the infrastructure bill and the rest," Pelosi said.

"I don't know if that's a good idea or a bad idea. I think it's an idea that should be considered and I think the president's taking the right approach to have a commission to study such a thing. It's a big step," she continued.
Pelosi added of expanding the court: "It's not out of the question. It has been done before in the history of our country a long time ago. And the growth of our country, the size of our country, the growth of our challenges in terms of the economy, etc., might necessitate such a thing."
Packing the court is only being considered by Democrats because they're still mad about former President Donald Trump getting several picks.
People like Ruth Bader Ginsburg should have retired when Barack Obama was president, which would have likely prevented Trump from getting to replace her.Source: thehill
