Democrats in of the House of Representatives will introduce a bill next week to limit the tenure of U.S. Supreme Court justices to 18 years from current lifetime appointments, in a bid to reduce partisan warring over vacancies and preserve the court’s legitimacy.
The new bill, seen by Reuters, would allow every president to nominate two justices per four-year term and comes amid heightened political tensions as Republican President Donald Trump prepares to announce his third pick for the Supreme Court after the death on Sept. 18 of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, with just 40 days to go until the Nov. 3 election.
“It would save the country a lot of agony and help lower the temperature over fights for the court that go to the fault lines of cultural issues and is one of the primary things tearing at our social fabric,” said California U.S. Representative Ro Khanna, who plans to introduce the legislation on Tuesday, along with Representatives Joe Kennedy III of Massachusetts and Don Beyer of Virginia.
We know why they are doing this. Democrats can’t handle the fact that they are losing power. They had no problem keeping Ruth Bader-Ginsburg on the court for as long as she could. The reason they want term limits is so that they can have a chance to retake the court. They know they are done. They know President Trump is going to get his nominee onto the Supreme Court and that he will win in 2020.
The argument they make here doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. They claim that term limits would make it less divisive when a new Justice is confirmed. This simply isn’t true. In fact, all this would do is force us to have more frequent divisive moments.
Democrats are all about power. Never forget that.
