Should Older Politicians Have to Take Cognitive Tests?

Here’s the Scoop

Prominent Republicans have called on President Joe Biden to take a “cognitive test” amid concerns about his mental capacity. Former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley discussed the topic earlier this month.

“Well what I’ll tell you is, rather than making this about a person, we seriously need to have a conversation that if you’re gonna have anyone above a certain age in a position of power — whether it’s the House, whether it’s the Senate, whether it’s vice president, whether it’s president — you should have some sort of cognitive test,” Haley said.

    I believe all politicians need to take a cognitive test. AOC is the perfect example of why all ages should have to take tests.

    Yes by all means he should be required to take the test. We need assurance that he is capable od holding the office of President. His reluctance to do so is definately a RED flag.

      In addition, a 2-term in office minus a pension needs to be considered and enforced as it is on the Presidency!

    All political positions from congress to the president should be held to competency tests. Which should include being vetted to supporting our constitution, rights and adherence to our laws and protocols. Acting like school children is getting embarrassing.

    Yes to anyone over 65 and term limits as well. That’s should weed out all the career politicians like Feinstein who doesn’t even know where she is!

    Having a test on their knowledge of the Constitution would be better since both major parties regularly violate it – just in different ways.

    So if the citizens (majority) request that something be addressed to Congress in a Democracy, they have to respond per the rules of a Democracy country, right?!?!
    So, if this request(s) is presented to a Democracy type Congress, they must address the constituent’s request?! The Leftists in Congress keep claiming that we are a democracy, but their action is of a Socialist nature!
    I for one am sick of the lies and propaganda that is coming from this swamp-led government!
