Paul Collins appears on Talking Politics

Paul Collins, professor of legal studies and political science, appeared on “Talking Politics” to discuss a proposal by a group of elected officials, including Massachusetts Senators Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey, to make changes affecting the U.S. Supreme Court, including increasing its size. Collins says increasing the size of the Court creates a “tit for tat” strategy in which there’s a push for more justices each time control of Congress or the Court changes. He says the best solution would be to institute staggered 18-year terms. (GBH, 4/28/23)
