Biden Sets Up Commission To Study Supreme Court Reform
https://www.npr.org/2021/04/09/985738915/biden-sets-up-commission-to-study-supreme-court-reform
Quote
"The Commission's purpose is to provide an analysis of the principal arguments in the contemporary public debate for and against Supreme Court reform, including an appraisal of the merits and legality of particular reform proposals," the White House said in a statement. "The topics it will examine include the genesis of the reform debate; the Court's role in the Constitutional system; 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."
If this is not handled very carefully it risks setting off a battle royal in the Culture Wars.

I doubt that there is enough support to make any changes here but I have been wrong before.

I agree.  This would set a very bad precedent.

I read somewhere today that setting up a commission in Washington, D.C. is a sure way to kill whatever the commission was to study.
Arctic ice is healthy for children and other living things.

To kill is probably a too strong word, looking at the Luxembourgish situation, I would say to delay any action. But here I feel that direct action wouldn't have been possible anyway, so maybe it's a good path to follow. But I have no idea what could come out of it. I feel that the problem nowadays is more a clan feeling inside the parties than the nomination process.
