No, and the Supreme Court should not be politicized

 @JonBSimConstitutionfrom Kentucky  agreed…3wks

No, reforming the Supreme Court is unconstitutional and would upset the balance of power

The Court is supposed to judge the bill according to the law according to author's intent.

It should not be judged according to popular opinion.

The Court should judge the bill according to the law according to its intent.

The only reason to expand the court today is for political reasons.

the supreme court should be under the watch of both ODNI, and the emperor, with the emperor having the last say on the most important issues.

@7PTCG38Democrat from Wisconsin answered…15hrs

Yes, add two additional seats and impose an age limit of 75 for judges serving on the Court

@966XFQMDemocrat from Iowa answered…24hrs

Reform is needed because it's already been politicized, but more seats and term limits on judges are not the answers. The solution lies in how judges are appointed.

I think the Supreme Court should maintain an equal balance between political affiliations. I also think that electing Supreme Court judges for lifelong terms is problematic because things change, public opinions change, new information arises, etc. Someone who was favored by the American public 20 years ago may not be favored now. I also think it’s good for positions of power to have set terms because electing someone for life does not support a system of checks and balances in my opinion.

@964Q428 from Missouri answered…3 days

Yes, and we should replace conservative/liberal judges with impartial ones. Bias should not affect laws.

@964KK4RCommunist from Missouri answered…3 days

The Supreme Court is an undemocratic institution where the rights of people are decided by a handful or unelected individuals, it should be reformed to include term limits and positions should be filled by popular vote

@964B9XC from North Carolina answered…4 days

No, we should consider amending the Constitution to have a 9 seat maximum for the Supreme Court.

@963M7YL from California answered…5 days

Yes, the Supreme Court should be modernized in some way to be able to keep up with the American culture to be the most accurate interpretation of the Constitution

No, but there should be mandatory retirement at age 75 or onset of serious illness.

@95WZQH6 from Mississippi answered…1wk

Yes, as a minimum. However, the Supreme Court should be abolished.

@95WF5BF from New Jersey answered…1wk

Our Supreme Court is no longer helping the people. They help big business screw the tax payer and take rights away that they should protect. 20 year term but If they vote by party lines rather then law they should be investigated

@95TB85J from Pennsylvania answered…2wks

Yes, I believe the Supreme Court should have the number of justices tied to the number of circuits.

@95SKX9B from Oregon answered…2wks

Yes, reform to impose term limits on judges, add a code of ethics, make them elected by the people of their district not appointed, and increase the number of judges to 15. 1 judge for every district in the country and 2 elected solely by indigenous people.

@95S856C from Louisiana answered…2wks

@95RMJGZ from Arizona answered…2wks

No but reform appointment procedures so Congress can’t block a president from filling a vacancy that occurs in their term.

@95RFQG4 from California answered…2wks

@95RCS9J from Colorado answered…2wks

The Supreme Court should be reformed to require judicial and trial experience and a pool of alternate jurists set up to immediately step into vacancies.

@95RCPCF from Colorado answered…2wks

@95M9VSC from California answered…2wks

Yes, and they should be required to obey the same laws we are required. Three currently seated judges lied to Congress under oath by saying they would not abolish the right to Abortion.

@95LW6MM from Pennsylvania answered…2wks

No, but all basic human rights should have Constitutional protection. Because this is a utopian idea, in the short term increasing to 13 seats makes sense, we should have one seat per circuit.

@95LN3L3 from Virginia answered…2wks

No, but make the process of selecting a judge more secure to avoid abuse of their power and making them follow code of ethics.

@95LGPVR from Kansas answered…2wks

Yes, but also set age limits to prevent judges from being unfit to represent the average citizen

@95KXDCBfrom Guam  answered…2wks

Yes and they should be directly elected democratically by the government
