    Yes, every Justice has clerks and interns. The oldest ones have clerks who do everything.

    Term limits would help.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    The House does not participate in that process.

    With Buzzy out for the foreseeable future, every vote should parallel the Constitution. Won't that be refreshing?

    The House has no say. It's a Senate confirmation.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    SCOTUS will make no rulings until she returns.

    No. They may put aside business she is involved in but they will not stop the work off the court while she dies over the next two years.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.
