An Open Letter

To: Rep. McClain, Sen. Peters, Pres. Biden, Sen. Stabenow

From: A constituent in Chesterfield, MI

July 2

I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. I am writing to express my deep concern regarding the recent rulings of the Supreme Court and to urge you to take decisive action to restore balance and integrity to our judiciary. As an American citizen, I have been profoundly disheartened by the apparent bias and partisanship exhibited by the current conservative majority on the Supreme Court. In recent years, the Court has issued decisions that undermine fundamental rights and values that many Americans hold dear. The erosion of voting rights, environmental protections, and reproductive rights, among others, signals a troubling departure from the principles of justice and equality upon which our nation was founded. These decisions not only impact the lives of millions but also threaten the very fabric of our democracy. Given the gravity of this situation, I strongly urge you to consider expanding the Supreme Court. The Constitution grants Congress the authority to determine the size of the Court, and it has been altered multiple times throughout our history. Expanding the Court would provide an opportunity to introduce a more balanced and representative judiciary that better reflects the diverse perspectives and values of the American people. Additionally, I implore you to support measures aimed at enhancing the transparency and accountability of the Supreme Court. Implementing term limits for justices and establishing a robust code of ethics are essential steps towards ensuring that the Court remains a fair and impartial arbiter of justice. As President, you have the power and the responsibility to act in the best interests of our nation. The integrity of our judicial system is at stake, and it is imperative that we take bold and decisive action to safeguard it. Expanding the Supreme Court is not a radical idea but rather a necessary response to the current crisis of legitimacy facing our highest court. Thank you for your attention to this urgent matter. I trust that you will give this request the serious consideration it deserves. Together, we can work to uphold the values of justice, equality, and democracy that are the foundation of our great nation.
