Make them debate

The Senate is broken. Republicans have perverted its rules so that a 60-vote supermajority is needed to pass virtually anything. Now we have a chance to reform the Senate rules and get it working for the people again. Last month, all 53 Democratic Senators signed a letter saying they supported rules reform that returned the filibuster to its original form, forcing Senators to hold the floor and talk for hours if they want to block legislation. Call your Democratic Senator right now and tell them to support rules reform that fixes the filibuster: 1-877-426-8013 Thank you for everything you do.
