14. A judicial review board or something isn't all that bad....BUT...
This comment from Dershowitz unveils what this is really all about:

A variety of legal scholars said the Republican blueprint looks overtly political. Harvard law professor Alan M. Dershowitz said he does not necessarily disagree with the proposals, but he noted that the scandal-scarred Republican leaders "are the wrong people and this is the wrong political context in which to make changes to improve the judiciary."

"You can't take them seriously, considering their source and timing," he said.
