(ReliableNews.org) – Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris both refused to answer questions about increasing the number of Supreme Court justices if Republicans push through a replacement for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Asked during the Sept. 29 presidential debate whether he would “pack the [Supreme] Court”, Biden replied: “Vote now.” CBS News host John Dickerson asked Harris about Biden’s refusal to answer the question, and she dodged the question as well.
REPORTER: Joe Biden's "answer on court packing, adding more justices to the [Supreme] Court, just sounds like a straight up dodge. Why won't he talk about what he wants to do, what he thinks should happen?"

“I think [Biden’s] very clear,” she responded, adding his focus was on the remaining 35 days before the election and the process utilized by President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to replace Ginsburg.
Presidents are constitutionally required to nominate justices to fill vacant seats on the Supreme Court. This power is one of the most lasting ones of many presidencies since Supreme Court justices enjoy lifetime appointments.
Americans are casting votes already in several states. Biden and Harris’ refusal to answer a simple question about their vision of the future of the Court leaves voters in the dark.
