Supreme Court decisions

Packing the Supreme Court has been back in the news as Congress is entertaining the idea of increasing the number of judges from nine to 13. Other countries have tried this before. What became of them? Back with us today is Jorge Gomez, Senior Writer and Content Strategist for First Liberty Institute (firstliberty.org). He takes a look at late 20th century Argentina under President Carlos Menem, who increased that country's Supreme Court from five judges to nine. He explores the tactics used to achieve that increase and the devastating fallout that ensued. It's an object lesson for the U.S., but will anyone learn from it?
