04.13.2021 - By The FOX News Rundown
It was a big issue in the 2020 campaign. Would President Biden pack the U.S. Supreme Court to balance its shift to the right? The last President to attempt to add Justices to the Supreme Court was Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1930's. Then Senator Joe Biden was critical of the suggestion back in 1983 calling it "a boneheaded idea" and later saying President Roosevelt put into question the court's independence. Law Professor at George Washington University and Fox News Contributor, Jonathan Turley discusses President Biden's executive order he signed on Friday to examine Supreme Court reform, the possibility of it actually happening and how the addition of Justice Amy Coney Barrett could have been be the tipping point.

Students returning to school or small businesses requiring it from customers to shop in their stores? How about if you want go to a concert or sporting event? Will it be required? Dr. Arthur Caplan is head of the division of Medical Ethics at NYU School of Medicine and he joins the 'Rundown" to explain what a "vaccine passport" is, if we really need one, if it violates HIPAA and how it will impact businesses.
