Response to NYC Liberal (Reply #39)

55. Can that be done? I thought FDR tried to do it, but to no avail.

He wanted to increase the size of the court to 15 justices. In the end, however, two conservative justices become more progressive and allowed a number of FDR's initiatives--such as the Social Security Act--to withstand challenges.
