Democrats prepare bill to reform Supreme Court; your thoughts?
the Supreme Court Term Limits and Regular Appointments Act
@Kieth: The part about adding Justices to the court does NOT require a constitutional amendment.
the part about Term Limits ---- they wrote it so that it doesn't apply to current justices, so that makes it less likely that it requires an amendment to the constitution.

I've been saying for years that the Supreme Court needed term limits, so I see this as a step in the right direction.
