House Democrats are in the process of introducing a piece of legislation next week designed to limit the tenure of U.S. Supreme Court justices, desiring to get rid of lifetime appointments — which is something outlined in the Constitution — to a single term of 18 years.
The bill comes hot on the heels of the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who passed away on September 18, leaving yet another vacancy for President Trump to fill.
The left is obviously terrified of having a conservative majority on the bench for decades to come so they are willing to shoot themselves in the foot and try to circumvent the Constitution, all so they can ensure things like abortion continue to be legal in this country.
They have to continue their assault against the family unit because it stands in their way of having ultimate power and authority. Thus, it’s critical for them to control the courts.

Reuters reported on the forthcoming bill, Thursday:
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.
According to Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna (CA), the bill — the “Supreme Court Term Limits and Regular Appointments Act” — is intended to tamp down partisanship.
“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 Khanna.
The bill is due to be introduced on Tuesday of next week.
Legal experts have already come out and stated that since the term of a Supreme Court justice is outlined in the Constitution, a bill alone isn’t going to change anything. It has to be changed through an amendment.
“The bill seeks to avoid constitutional concerns by exempting current justices from the 18-year rule,” Rueters said in their report. “Those appointed under term limits would become ‘senior’ upon retirement and rotate to lower courts.”
At the end of the day, this isn’t about preventing partisanship. It’s about preventing conservatives from being on the bench for too long so the left can replace them at a faster clip and keep pushing their radical agenda by abusing the power and authority of the Supreme Court.
