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.
