Joe Biden’s former chief of staff and the current head of his campaign’s transition team, Ted Kaufman, supports a bill promoted by a leftist group, Fix the Court, which if implemented would impose strict limits on the justices’ term of office. This move is in keeping with Biden’s explicit desire to bring about change on the Supreme Court to facilitate the implementation of his policies.
As reported by The Federalist, Kaufman, who worked with Biden for more than 20 years, supported a radical proposal that, among other things, seeks to limit the terms of U.S. Supreme Court justices to 18 years.
Fix the Court, using the excuse of “depoliticizing” the court, is seeking real “reform” to hinder constitutionally appointed conservative justices.
Among the proposed reforms, any former justice who is no longer on the court could return to office without congressional or presidential approval if any other justice leaves a seat vacant for any reason.
A letter of support for the bill signed by Kaufman, among others, states, “We are pleased that a formal legislative proposal to limit future justices to 18 years of high court service has been introduced and is advancing public discourse on court reform.”
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) made strong statements last week on Fox News regarding Democratic candidate Joe Biden, saying he is leading a plan to “fill the Supreme Court with left-wing activists.”
According to Rubio’s words, there is a sort of political plan, promoted by the Democrats and currently led by the candidate for president Joe Biden, to destroy the democratic institutions of the United States, with the simple objective of being able to develop his progressive agenda without problems.
While Biden has avoided answering the question of whether he would agree to enact legislation that would allow them to increase the number of Supreme Court justices and then fill it with leftist activists, he has not denied it either. And he conspicuously stated that he would answer that question when the Senate is voting on the addition of President Trump’s nominee, Amy Coney Barrett.
“I’m going to make my position clear in the next few days when they vote on the judge nominee, now I have to stay focused on that,” Joe Biden responded when asked by Fox2 Detroit about the possibility of enacting legislation to expand the Supreme Court.
Today, the Senate confirmed the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court, but Joe Biden has yet to make a statement.
