The Congress in the United States of America should not be doing what it is doing. Some are arguing that this all being done for political reasons because people do not like the president of the United States of America. However they should not be doing this to our court systems.
I definitely think that the amount of time it is taken and the backlog is affecting our Federal Courts. Everything is always in a turmoil and you never know who is coming and going and just causes a lot of distraction and unnecessary drama. There should be a easier way to appoint them that would be faster and also less controversy.
No, the backlog in approving presidential judicial nominations is not impairing the functioning of the federal courts, because that is the way the courts and the legislature just work. Those who are nominated would likely just be a further part of the inefficiency that already exists. Some people work harder than others.
I do not believe the backlog in approving presidential judicial nominations is impairing the functioning of federal courts. The federal courts are always slow and methodical and it is doubtful that these delays are causing any major problems in the system or delaying things any more than usual. Should the backlog exist? No, but that's how our system works.
