Not sure Obamacare was a "disaster".
So where is President Trump's plan which he promised months ago? Why have we not seen it.?

It is not unusual for elected officials to dodge questions.

54% think packing the courts is not okay so I would imagine most are miffed that Biden, who is acting like an evasive jerk, won't answer to the people. If Biden should be elected it makes me wonder if he'll follow Obama's propensity for showing a lack of tranparency.

Really?

9 Times The Obama Administration Fought Subpoenas or Blocked Officials from Testifying Before Congress

PJ media? Did infowars not have a list?

Instead of questioning the source, show that the information is wrong. 🤷‍♂️

I will admit that in some of those cases, Obama's Administration "relented" later on. But he did fight all of them initially.

Nor are either Trump or Obama the first to do so:

Donald Trump is not the first president to fight subpoenas

Trump refusing to lay out his plan for what happens if he succeeds in getting the Supreme Court to throw out pre-existing condition protections and immediately strip tens of millions of Americans of coverage is a lot more relevant to hundreds of millions of American daily lives than Biden’s thoughts on a hypothetical court expansion proposal that doesn’t even exist.

If Joe decides to correct the court, that needs to be adjudicated if/when.

However: if ACB is made to declare where she stands on Roe and ACA, then there would be greater pressure on Joe to commit. (Still wont’ change a *single* vote)

I am seeing A LOT of hypocrisy on this forum coming from the left. Especially from the ones that call for open transparency.

To hold this veiled threat as a post election secret is not fair to the moderate and independent voters. And where is Biden's list of Supreme Court nominees? The media (which we all know is completely biased) should force answers from the Biden campaign.

any declaration she would declare would mean she has to recuse herself from the case. judges have learned not to do that.

there is no correction needed for the court.
leftists not liking the court doing what they are supposed to do is there issue no one else's.

Then Joe has no reason to discuss his plans to correct the SC. If we can’t be honest about where we stand on these Very Important SC Issues, then Biden is 100% right: **** the media and the GOP. Go cry about it some more as voters continue to not care in droves. IN DROVES.

Nope he does not owe you an answer. As with trump he will let you know what he will do once he is elected.

No he actually doesn't, it is just a theoretical and nothing has been put forth by either Party, you are just speculating. Nonsense, you are not qualified to judge squat. You are Dismissed.

Would it not also take Congress to approve any plan to expand or shrink the SC?

As far as "our court system"., How much input have you had on Trump's appointment in filling lower federal court judges?

Can someone explain to me why we need Biden to tell us what we all know he's going to do? No different than what Trump will do, just a moot topic in my mind.
