Notice these China-First rats don't make the same and more obvious declaration of term limits for Congress?


The Washington Post editorial board over the weekend called to establish term limits for Supreme Court justices, limiting them to 18 years on the bench, in an effort to ensure both Republicans and Democrats have "foreseeable, regular opportunities to nominate justices."

The Post’s view came on the heels of Joe Biden’s Executive Order Friday to form a commission to "study" reforming the Supreme Court, including analysis of the "membership and size" and "length of service and turnover of justices" of the court, according to the White House.

Biden said the court system was "out of whack" in a "60 minutes" interview during his campaign for president, and promised to establish a commission to investigate solutions. The 36-member bipartisan commission will hold public meetings and is directed to complete its report within 180 days.

What a hypocrite.

Biden had no issues with the court while he was VP and the lefties (along with Roberts) were upholding Obamacare.

It would be a big mistake for term limits for the Supreme Court. No term limits keeps the members from political pressure from one election to the next.

Term limits wouldn't have any more effect on justices than they would on politicians. Conservatives think term limits on politicians are a good idea. Why not justices?

The proposal is that the 18 year term limit would stagger every two years. That means, every President could appoint a new justice every two years. Seems reasonable to me.

I would then cement into law only nine justices. Right now, there is no limit on the number of SCOTUS justices.

It will require a Constitutional Amendment.

Mark Levin has long agitated for term limits for the Justices.

FYI Canada has term limits on its Supreme Court.

Canadian SC judges must retire when they are 75.

I didn't even know this.

I actually agree with term limits for judges and politicians of all kinds. We don't even have two term limits on Prime Ministers. This can be a real problem.

LOL That's only because we've got a conservative court right now.

I hope this partisan insanity doesn't reach that far. Constitutional law is a life long study and should be respected as such.

Deep in the heart of Texas.
I'm sure if there were six liberal leaning justices on the court instead of conservative leaning ones the Post would have a different take on this. To be fair and honest so would conservatives if this were the case. Funny how politicans and there supporters in and out of the media only support ideas like this when it's to their benefit never when it's not which tells you what horrible idea it actually is.

Then they should impose term limits on Congress too which is a lot easier to do since a law is all is needed, for SCOTUS you need a new amendment to do that.

But who makes those laws? How many people do you know that would voluntarily decide to throw themselves out of a good job?

You may have unintentionally exposed what they truly are, they treat it as a job and make a lot of money out of it.

What does unessentially mean?
