I am concerned if this pauses confirmation of Federal judge positions.
Too many bad choices already.  That is another thing that needs term limits.

I recently read the Federalist Papers. It is long and dry in lots of places, but illuminating in others. I recommend reading this to anyone interested in why the government was designed the way it was by the founding fathers. (At least in Hamilton's and Madison's view of such things.)

Regarding lifetime appointments...one of the thoughts was that a long career with thoughtful experience in the law was beneficial as long as the justice remained in good health. Impeachment is the remedy for corrupt judges. Appeals are the remedy for bad decisions.

You can have your federal judge term limits, after I get my House and Senate term limits - 3 terms for the house, 2 terms for the senate.

I need, the country needs, a little break from these shenanigans.

Yes, I really hope this wakes up a lot of conservatives  who do not normally vote to come out and be counted. The Democrats are wasting time doing nothing but try to make President Trump look bad and I think that this is really going to backfire on them as it has shown Americans who they really are.
