Booker introduces bill to end lifetime appointments for Supreme Court

Article III of the United States Constitution says Supreme Court Justices are appointed for life. Now several Democrat U.S. Senators who are upset about the Supreme Court's recent decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade want to permanently change how long they serve. One of them is New Jersey Senator Cory Booker. Yesterday he said "The Supreme Court is facing a crisis of legitimacy. The crisis is a result of radical rulings that discard years of legal precedent and are at odds with the views of the American people." The senators would like to see the term of each Supreme Court Justice end after 18 years.

Any change to Article III of the U.S. Constitution would require much more than a simple majority in the Senate and Congress. The process of amending our Constitution would start with 2/3's of both houses supporting the idea. Approval by 3/4's of all of our country's state legislatures is also another way to amend the Constitution.
