Ocasio-Cortez weighed in on the latest proposal from several prominent Democrats in Congress to “pack” the Supreme Court by adding four new Democrat-selected justices to the bench to skew its ideological balance in their party’s favor. This proposal is disastrous and dangerous in and of itself. Yet, the congresswoman not only endorsed the plan to turn the Supreme Court into a rubber stamp but essentially suggested that she doesn’t believe the high court should act as a check on Congress at all.

According to Fox News, Ocasio-Cortez questioned why the justices "can overturn laws that hundreds and thousands of legislators, advocates, and policymakers drew consensus on."

“How much does the current structure benefit us?" she asked. “I don't think it does."

With these remarks, the congresswoman misunderstands or rejects the very role the Supreme Court plays in safeguarding our constitutional liberties. She decries the fact that the judiciary can overrule elected policymakers, but that’s exactly the point.
And if she believes this why add more trouble and just abolish the Supreme Court. If AOC believes that the SCOTUS should not be a co-equal branch, she should sponsor the bill and defend it.

being a socialist by nature is not in compliance with the Constitution. so not surprised with her "hottake". would be surprised if she's ever read it though.
