Can the court be packed via simple majority?
They got rid of the 60-vote threshold for SCOTUS nominees back when Gorsuch was nominated......

Packing the court requires a majority in BOTH the House and the Senate to pass a law increasing the number of members on the court.
Note: There was actually NEVER a 60 vote threshold to confirm nominees.
The 60 votes is for ending debate and actually holding a vote. The actual vote has ALWAYS required a simple majority.
