Biden’s Supreme Court commission already facing resistance as it considers wide range of ‘reforms’
Anthony Marcum, a resident fellow at the libertarian R Street Institute, argued term limits would raise the temperature of Supreme Court confirmation fights by more frequently lining them up in presidential election years. Under staggered, 18-year terms, he noted, a two-term president would pick 44% of the court’s justices.
“Term limits don’t solve any problems surrounding the Supreme Court,” Marcum said. He said advocates should focus on “increasing transparency” and ensuring that Americans – and lawmakers – understand the court’s role as the nation’s top judicial decisionmaker.
