Senators openly contesting Franklin D Roosevelt attempt at packing the Supreme Court. Unidentified Sentaor, I shall not be a party to breaking down the checks and balances of the Constitution in the absence of a mandate from the People to that effect. Unidentified Sentaor, I do not think that any person who has confidence in the President of the United States will believe for one moment that he was urged by a desire to pack the Supreme Court of the United States in his personal interest. Unidentified Sentaor, I am opposed to packing the Court for the purpose of controlling its Constitutional decisions, whether by the President or by anybody else..

March 9, 1937. Fireside Chat. Franklin D Roosevelt What do they mean by the words "packing the Court"? Let me answer this question with a bluntness that will end all honest misunderstanding of my purposes. If by that phrase "packing the Court" it is charged that I wish to place on the bench spineless puppets who would disregard the law and would decide specific cases as I wished them to be decided, I make this answer: that no President fit for his office would appoint, and no Senate of honorable men fit for their office would confirm, that kind of appointees to the Supreme Court of the United States.
