We Desperately Need an Age Ceiling in the Senate!

Even though her legacy as a senator is outright legendary, seeing as she’d become the longest-serving female member of the Senate in American history, Dianne Feinstein may no longer be fit for the position.

Several of her colleagues expressed concerns regarding her rapidly declining memory in recent years. Recent reports show Feinstein struggling to remember small pieces of information from only a few hours ago.

Dianne Feinstein may have gotten too old for the Senate

It was years ago when Feinstein was at the top of her class, always being in charge and driving either a bill or an idea with ease. Now, all of those skills are gone, washed away with age, and it’s time to face the facts.

Despite her worrying health, Feinstein decided she will continue to serve the rest of her term. While she won’t be running for re-election in 2024, many members of the party were strongly against the 89-year-old remaining in power.

Her monthslong absence was broken with her return to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Her health has been raising concerns ever since, as she’s still recovering from shingles and several other medical complications.

Feinstein’s office originally denied that shingles caused any other health problems, but now, it’s come to light that they caused swelling of the brain, professionally known as encephalitis.

Like clockwork

In the last week alone, five Democrats have called for her resignation, likely eyeing her seat in the Senate, including Ro Khanna, Dean Phillips, AOC, Rashida Tlaib, and finally, Ritchie Torres.

It’s not uncommon for Democrats to turn against their own when they see an opportunity to upgrade their own political careers. Not even the elderly are safe.

The fact that the majority of Biden’s party is against him running for president in 2024 is a testament to the vulture-like behavior of the Democrats. It won’t be long until AOC and her posse show their true intentions.

It was never about Feinstein’s health, but rather, the seat of the senior senator, one that she held since 1992.

That being said, it’s obvious that a dementious person shouldn’t be a member of the Senate, or any governing body in the US, for that matter.
