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.
It’s not just the terrible decisions made by the extreme right majority, it’s how the Trump justices got there.
Congress or DOJ must look into this. The Supreme Court is destroying its own reputation.
Look how their favorability is falling. This will make it fall more.
It’s bad for the environment
It’s bad for the government’s ability to function (which was the right-wing extremists’ intention)
