Restore Fairness to Our Courts
If we are going to enact just laws and pass crucial legislation, we must act now to restore fairness and balance in our courts.
By controlling the selection of judges, Republicans seek to overturn the will of the people. Through manipulation of the rules, they have appointed 16 of the last 20 Supreme Court Judges. Donald Trump, a man who lost the popular vote, just appointed over a quarter of the federal judiciary to lifetime appointments. Many of these judges were rated as unqualified.
In order to return fairness and balance to our courts, experts have long said we should expand the Supreme Court and impose term limits.
Action: Contact Senators Murray and Cantwell and make your voice heard.
