Democrat Rep. Mondaire Jones claims “Supreme Court expansion is infrastructure.”

In a controversial tweet being ridiculed by some conservatives, Rep. Mondaire Jones tweeted “Supreme Court expansion is infrastructure.”

Jones is one of the four Democrats spearheading a new bill to expand the SCOTUS to 13 justices.

April 7th fellow Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand had also expanded the traditional definition of “infrastructure” by tweeting:

Paid leave is infrastructure.
Child care is infrastructure.
Caregiving is infrastructure.

Moments ago, Jones added:

Our democracy is in crisis.

If we’re going to save it, we must #ExpandTheCourt.

Today, our movement begins.
