how does the threat of “packing the court” contribute to ones idea of integrity?
The Dems probably won't expand the number of Justices, in order to make up for being SCREWED OVER TWICE by the RepugLIARS who don't give a flip about integrity, or honor, or truth, or fair play, or government working for the people.
The Dems do care about that stuff, because it makes govt work better for all. But the RepugLIARS care only about expanding the autocratic powers of the tRump. But expanding the # of SCOTUS Justices could lead to an escalating cold war, in which each party does this when they control the Congress (esp. the Senate) and the presidency at the same time. Joe Biden does not want such a scenario to play out.
However, I suggest that when faced with “RepugLIARS who don’t give a flip about integrity, or honor, or truth, or fair play, or government working for the people.” then it becomes necessary, at times, to go against the grain of ones values, because the corrupt RepugLIARS leave no alternative.
