Tell Your Senators: Support Senate Rules Reform
With the new Congress, we need real change. Americans have been impatiently waiting for discussion and debate on immigration, climate change and the economic stagnation that has destroyed the American dream.
For too long now in the U.S. Senate, tactics like the filibuster have been misused and abused. Congress has stopped legislating effectively, with Senators using ridiculous dodge tactics to block real progress.
We have a chance to restore the filibuster to its original purpose and to streamline Senate procedures, but we need your help to do it.
Ask your Senators to co-sponsor Senate Resolution 4, which would make meaningful Senate rules changes, including requiring Senators to speak on the floor if they wish to filibuster. If you have time, please personalize the sample letter and tell your Senators which issues important to you are being held up by our dysfunctional Congress.
