President Biden will issue an executive order Friday to form a commission to study reforms to the United States Supreme Court.
Biden, under pressure from liberals to expand the size of the high court, promised to create the commission during a "60 Minutes" interview back in October in the wake of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.
While court packing -- or expanding the number of justices beyond nine -- has been the most high-profile court reform debated, Biden's executive order seeks to look at other judicial changes, including the lifetime appointment of justices.
According to the White House, the commission will look into "the length of service and turnover of justices on the Court; the membership and size of the Court; and the Court’s case selection, rules, and practices."

This type of EOs never ends in legislation, been just an EO it means nothing, is just pandering to liberals to show he is doing something.

We'd have to fix the state governments first. Before I could get behind, that idea.
We don't need a CC. We need to hold "them" to "The Law" and "their oaths" as written. The C.O.T.U.S doesn't need "fixed/changed". It needs to be adhered to!
