Term limits on the Supreme Court will take too long to have an impact

what I wrote in comments on the Washington Post site.

Your editorial supporting term limits states “The reform would take a long time to work.” Are we supposed to put up with 30 more years of the extremist court until the Trump justices are gone?  (I assume it would not apply to current justice.) This right-wing court will continue to do damage so this would not solve the problem any time soon.  I expect them to endorse the independent state legislature theory in the next term.   Term limits are a good idea but something else must be done sooner.

One thing that should be done is a law requiring the Senate to have hearings and a vote on any presidential nominee for the Supreme Court. A repeat McConnell’s shameful behavior on Garland is unacceptable.
