Rep. Nancy Pelosi told MSNBC’s Jen Psaki, Biden’s former press secretary that now she wants term limits but not for Congress.
Pelosi now demands that the nation’s highest court impose term limits instead of lifetime appointments.
“Here we have a body … chosen for life. Never have to run for office. Nominated, confirmed for life, with no accountability for their ethical behavior,” Pelosi said.
“If nothing else, there should be some ethical rules that would be followed,” Pelosi said.
It’s funny that Pelosi is calling for ethical rules when she’s seemed to have beaten the stock market and cashed in.
The former speaker of the House also called Justices Thomas and Alito “shameful” insinuating that they have violated ethics.
She was coy about expanding the court.
“It’s been over 150 years since we’ve had an expansion of the court. It was in the time of Lincoln that it went up to nine, so the subject of whether that should happen is a discussion — it’s not, say, a rallying cry, but it’s a discussion,” Pelosi said.
The California Congresswoman also told Psaki that she believes abortion will be their winning issue in 2024.
“Everybody said we’re going to lose 30, 40 seats,” Pelosi said of the 2022 midterms. “Last time we lost five and everybody says you had the wrong message. They were saying to me, you’re going to owe an apology to the members because Dobbs is in the rearview mirror. But it wasn’t. It was up front, and it is right up in front of women in our country.”
“Our country has always been about expanding freedom. Until now, this court, ignoring its own precedent and the right of privacy in the Constitution,” Pelosi said. “So we have to reverse that. And Congress has the right to do that one way or another.”
Do you mean the Democrat party that wanted to force people into a mandate so they could work? Or is that the same party attempting to ban gas stoves?
Of course, Psaki never followed up by asking Pelosi why the Democrats didn’t codify abortion when the Democrats had full control of Congress.
