Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) argued how vital it is that Democrats stand down from trying to pack the Supreme Court.

During an interview on Saturday, Cruz suggested Joe Biden is in a better position than FDR was when he tried to pack the Supreme Court back in 1937.

The senator pointed to the fact Democrats actually tried to stand against Roosevelt’s power grab, whereas now it is congressional Democrats pushing the move.

Cruz went on to say how often constitutional rights have been one vote away from extinction in 5-4 votes in the Supreme Court. He added packing the seats with liberal judges could spell the end for freedoms, such as free speech and the Second Amendment.
