Letter: It’s time for term limits on U.S. Supreme Court

It’s time for term limits on U.S. Supreme Court

While watching the State of the Union address, I was appalled at the sight of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg sleeping. Arguably one of the most powerful positions within our government, it should have some term limit. While some 81-year-olds contemplate surrendering their driver’s license, she is steering our country. Should the justices be appointed for life? Where is the accountability?

Ironically, the highest elected office within our government, the president, is limited to two terms. Yet Ginsburg is in her 22nd year. With an annual salary of $244,400, the least she could do is stay awake during the next State of the Union address.
