The potential retirement of two U.S. Supreme Court Justices has liberal Democrats on edge.  Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg is 87 years old and Justice Stephen Breyer is 81.

"We are about 40 or 50 years behind the conservatives on realizing that a lot of excitement actually happens at the courts," Indivisible Project's director of democracy policy Meagan Hatcher-Mays told CBS News. She cited the Supreme Court's recent decision regarding Wisconsin's primary, which effectively forced voters to brave the polls during the COVID-19 pandemic, as a clear example of how the high court's decisions can directly impact lives...   READ MORE HERE....
