Today’s Action: The filibuster MUST go!

For too long, Mitch McConnell has abused the Senate’s provision for unlimited debate to enable a minority of senators to overturn the will of the majority of Americans. But that progress-halting power could be on the verge of extinction — IF we demand the end of the filibuster.

Here’s just a sampling of what’s highly unlikely to pass while the filibuster remains in place:

    • The For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, to undo the wave of GOP voter suppression hitting nearly every state in the wake of Trump’s loss
  • Statehood for D.C., where over 700,000 (largely Black) Americans currently live under taxation without representation

 

  • The Equality Act, to include sexual orientation and gender identity as protected characteristics under civil rights law

 

  • Gun safety laws, effective climate change policy, a $15 minimum wage, and so much more…practically every element of the Democratic agenda that can’t be squeezed through the budget reconciliation process (as we saw, several months ago, with the failed attempt to raise the $15 minimum wage through budget reconciliation) 

 

Contact your Senators TODAY and demand they eliminate the Senate’s minority veto by ending the filibuster as we know it!

What’s the filibuster? Ending debate and officially advancing most legislation to a final vote in the Senate requires 60 votes. So, the minority party may simply vote against ending debate – thereby blocking legislation that would otherwise pass with a simple majority. No long speeches into the night; the minority has nearly the same power as the majority, thanks to the filibuster.

Most Democratic Senators are on board with ending the filibuster…but a few moderates are holding back their entire party. Every Democratic Senator needs to hear about the urgency of passing the Democratic agenda without letting the filibuster get in the way – and every Republican Senator needs to know you support these important policies and you won’t be forgetting their vote come election year.

Call (202.224.3121) or email your Senators and demand they eliminate the Jim Crow filibuster, to allow the majority of Americans to finally rule in the United States!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
