This assumes that the Democrats do not engage in the “audacity of consequences” by righting wrongs. One way to do this, is to suspend the filibuster until the Democrats gain a SCOTUS Seat advantage, commensurate to the seats stolen by the Trump/McConnell partnership.

A GOP stolen seat gives them an advantage of 1 seat, which is equalized by the Dems gaining one: only when the Dems Gain 2 seats are, they compensated. Counting foreign influence enabling 45 to win in 2016, three SCOTUS seats were stolen. Give Mitch’s 2021 unfavorable rating of 64%, the 2022 Senatorial races can become a referendum on the SCOTUS Seats.
