Some legislators are proposing to increase the number of justices on the Supreme Court following recent decisions with which certain members of Congress disagree. 

Representative Adam Schiff stated, “We must unpack the court by expanding the number of justices on the court, instituting term limits, and enacting a code of ethics like every other federal court.” He added, “I’ve spent years talking about the need to expand, unstack and reform the Supreme Court This week we saw firsthand the consequences of this imbalance.” 

The congressman also wrote that the opinions of the court are what are extreme, not suggestions to expand it.
