A Supreme Court Justice disappeared from public view and everyone is asking one question

In recent weeks, one Supreme Court Justice’s health dominated the national conversation.

Their retirement could lead to the biggest political fight in American history.

And now that Justice disappeared from public view and every American is asking one big question.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg continues to recover from doctors removing cancerous tumors from her lungs.

Ginsburg skipped two weeks worth of oral arguments in order to rest and rehabilitate.

Now she canceled an appearance in Los Angeles at the Skirball Cultural Center to celebrate an exhibit dedicated to her life.

Some Americans are wondering if Ginsburg’s health complications could lead to Congress passing a mandatory retirement age for Supreme Court Justices.

Under the 1991, Gregory v. Ashcroft case, such a restriction would pass constitutional muster.

Others argued that the framers set all sorts of age restrictions setting minimum ages for people to run for office and if they wanted elected officials or judges to retire at a certain age they would have included such language in the Constitution.

Either way, if Ginsburg retires while Donald Trump is still President and the Republicans control the Senate, the ensuing liberal freak out will be like nothing seen before in American politics.

    I think there are many who think the same thing.
    They apparently haven’t listened to the prophecy of Mark Taylor, where Trump will appoint 5 new Supremes!
    Whether you believe in modern day prophecy or not, you can’t argue with his track record. ???? % is ???? % anyway you slice it.
    Story goes there are 3 that will be linked to causing their sudden retirement!!!! Hmmm, is this why Roberts is clinging to life so precariously

    Would “duh” be enough for you cuzz that is all you are going to get!

  8. rufusvondufus says:

    She is most likely already dead and the dems are attempting to keep it quiet. If not physically dead she is at least brain dead! Get her the hell out of there and quit holding up progress.

    That’s true. Older citizens do contribute to our Country. I agree that if you are ill you need to leave office. I can’t keep my job if I get sick.

    Their physical and mental conditions should be tested after age 70 for the simple reason they make life changing decisions that affect millions of citizens. Their recall of the laws to be at peak performance all all times. The same should apply to congressional leaderships as well. Citizens living under rulings/decisions made by aging law makers with lesser mental abilities are the ones who pay the price of their errors in judgement.

    Miyako, well said!!!

  12. Raven78 says:

    My only question is, Is she still kicking? Other then that I could careless if this old bat is dust.

  13. JD Richardson says:

    I demand proof of life and mental faculties.

  14. Djv says:

    I disagree. As long as a justice is of sound mind, their collective knowledge invaluable and an asset. HOWEVER when they become physically or chronically ill .. such as Ginsberg has, it should be set in stone that they move into retirement as not to impede Supreme Court hearing that become unbalanced by their prolonged absence. Case in point was McCain who was useless to begin with and worse after his dx. Jmo

    Guess it would be determined on there mental health!! Taking physicals and testing the mind. I would say when you hit 90 though that’s it! Time to retire. Lot of people doing good in there 80’s if they stay away from pill pushing doctors. Definitely need judges that neutral and not persuaded by anyone!
