It’s Time for Term Limits on the Supreme Court

John Fund, National Review

It’s time to end the unseemly position that the anachronism of life tenure for Supreme Court justices has put the country in. Modern medicine is a great thing. But the time has come to remove the incentives that make justices serve until they drop dead or are gaga. It’s time to put term limits on the Supreme Court. Returning our courts to their proper place in our constitutional framework is a tall order, and not one to be solved by abandoning life tenure for Supreme Court justices. But the idea is a sensible step, enjoys support from both conservative and liberal legal scholars, and just might give Congress the opportunity to prove to the American people that it’s still capable of bipartisan action.
