SCOTUS Reform

The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) should be the embodiment of those most American values- democracy and equality - yet increasingly partisan Republican nominees, confirmed through illicit means, have skewed the Court to the extent that it no longer represents the intent of the Constitution or the will of the people. One hundred twenty-seven (127) nominees have been confirmed in the history of the Court, but only 5 Justices have failed to garner the 60% historical threshold of Senate votes. All 5 of those Justices currently sit on the 9-member Court and represent 5 of the past 6 Republican nominees. The most recent 3 nominees are the first in history to not be confirmed by Senators that represent a majority of the population. Taking steps to revise the Court will bring it back to center from its current right-wing radicalism and represent contemporary Americans again.
