With a 6-3 Republican supermajority, the Supreme Court is exceptionally susceptible to partisan bias and special interests. Without real change, we risk losing our ability to moderate or block policies that suppress the right to vote—endangering our entire democracy.
Congress can change the number of Supreme Court justices at any time with simple legislation, and has done so several times throughout American history. Now, top Democrats have introduced a bill that adds four new seats to restore ideological balance. By passing this legislation and introducing term limits for Supreme Court justices, we can begin the work necessary to depoliticize our courts.
