The President is limited to two terms. And now Pelosi and the democrats want to limit Supreme Court justices to 18 years.

Strange but Pelosi didnt mention a thing about term limits for Congress.

I don't know about 18 years.....but a set retirement age for SC justices would be good.

Congress are elected representatives......SC judges are not.

I realize American Government was a hard class, but try and remember: Members of the house of representatives stand for election every 2 years. Voters can remove them every 2 years if they are unhappy with them. Supreme Court justices are not elected, and can't be removed outside of impeachment or their own choosing. See the tiny difference there...

Reps in Congress can be removed by the people of their district every two years, hence we already have term limits. Not so with SC Justices, 18 years is more than enough.

The president is voted in every 4 years, but he has term limits, why not Congress?

Congress can remove any federal judge any time they want to, not just every 2 years.

By a wide margin people want term limits for Congress. I suggest 3 terms for the House, and 2 terms for the Senate.

I can’t ****ing believe that I agree with you. Congressmen and senators should have term limits. As should Supreme Court justices. Stopped clock and all that, right buddy?

Well, they're different topics for one.

But I get you. Sometimes when someone is talking about the weather, I start whining about why they aren't also talking about the stock market, and how busy traffic is, and the price of gas.

Then they ridicule me, and I feel sad, because I'm stupid.
