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.

Currently, Supreme Court members serve lifetime appointments and bitter political battles have followed when justices have died or retired.

The article goes on to state the following:

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.

Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) reportedly plans to introduce the proposed legislation on Tuesday, and claimed in a Twitter post on Friday that a majority of Americans agree on term limits for Supreme Court Justices.

Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.), a co-sponsor of the bill, tweeted, “When I first ran for Congress in 2014, I proposed limiting terms of Supreme Court Justice to 18-appointments. Given the recent, dramatic politicization of the Court, it’s time for real reform.”

Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-Mass.), another co-sponsor of the bill, added, “Lifetime appointments to the highest court in our land undermine our democratic process and erode progress in our nation. We must enact 18 year term limits on our Supreme Court justices to continue our march towards a more perfect union.”

VOX editor Ezra Klein cheered the idea.

  1. If they can’t get more justices in the Supreme Court, they try to limit how many years they can be in the court. Maybe they should limit the tenure of SENATORS & REPRESENTATIVES!

  2. Another BUll S bill from the democrats. And they say the majority of the Americasn people support that. Another fat lie! I don’t support that a president is limited in his right to appoint justices! And so do many other people in the USA.

  3. Does that 18yr period include conservative judges now serving?? That number has to only benefit the dems agenda! However, I agree that Ginsberg served way past her usefulness. But, she did get in quite a few good naps.

  4. The people don’t care about term limits for the high court ,what they really care about is term limits for congress and senate so you don’t have people spending their entire life getting rich off the tax payers, people like Pelosi, waters , biden just to name a few

  5. First, before passing a bill to limit 18 years term for Supreme Court Justifies…. let us pass a bill to limit Congress and Senate to 8 years! Now, that will help “Make America Great Again!

  6. Tell the lying, cheating, evil, deceiving, communist socialist Democrats to go pound sand. Always want to change the rules when things don’t go their way or they can’t cram their agenda down your throat.

  7. We actually need term limits on the House and Senate. Maybe then they will actually spend their limited time working for Americans instead of their re-elections. Imagine that!

  8. This is ridiculous!!! We can’t go into this particular election without a new supreme court justice! Are the Democrats planning to use the BLM and ANTIFA as an army to take over the White House? They are planning a contentious election AND fighting the last resolution? They have lost their stupid little minds!

    • Yes the BLM and ANTIFA are the foot soldiers of the socialist Democrats and when Trump wins the election they will be used to disrupt. and destroy cities across the country.

  9. We need term limits in the house and in the Senate, say maybe 8 years. No person should be in there a lifetime like Pelosi and Schumer and all those. Plus they should have healthcare like the American people.

  10. What is needed is a bill limiting the left ,
    period . From Constitutional pandering and rewriting laws to suit their anti American ways .
    Those that wrote the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution knew what they were doing and that was all FOR THE PEOPLE , not a political group of discontents .

  11. And Rokhanna just how does this help the citizens of America. Your attempt to control government is a DimWit view of how to win every debated argument

  12. What about two term Presidents. Does that mean they would get four picks. If we still have 9, that would be almost half. Term limits for house for sure. There’s 435 reps in the house. That’s too much control when they’re in they for 20+ years. They’re like a mob or gang.

  13. I want a law passed for term limits on the Congress and senate. These people that been in There forever and they Forgot why they went into politics in the first place. And when they come out they are all not all multi-millionaires
