Tell Harry Reid: Fix the Filibuster! | LeftAction

For too long, America has watched helplessly as the the Senate became the place where good bills go to die. The ridiculous, outdated, undemocratic filibuster meant that majority rule was turned on its head, and the stubbornness of 41 senators was enough to block the hard work and good will of 59 others. And with the Republican minority using the filibuster at an unprecedented pace, work and progress ground to a halt.

With the Senate back in session, the Democratic majority has the opportunity to fix this asinine rule. And it will be able to do so with a simple majority vote, if it acts in the critical first few weeks, when Senate rules are set for the term.
