Published

The only Fortune 500 CEO in the Senate dismissed the government shutdown that ended Monday as a worthless exercise.

“It is ridiculous that we were ever in the Schumer Shutdown in the first place,” said Sen. David A. Perdue Jr. (R.-Ga.). “I’m glad to see that Senate Democrats came to their senses and stopped this nonsense.”

Perdue, who was the CEO of both Dollar General and Reebok, said he was not sure what the Senate Democrats, led by Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D.-N.Y.), were trying to accomplish.

“It is frustrating that this is the same proposal that was offered to them days ago before they decided to shut down the government over immigration,” he said.

“Senate Democrats took their political stunt a step too far since a majority of Americans support funding the federal government over continuing the DACA program,” he said.

Perdue has complained about the budget process, since he started to campaign for the seat in 2014.

“Clearly, Congress’ budget process is a complete failure. It has only worked four times in the past 43 years, and given the current political dynamics it will never work,” he said. “Tying important policy decisions to the funding process is the reason we end up in these damaging situations.”

Interesting timing.

Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.

It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.

The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.

A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
