An open letter to the U.S. Senate

We Need to Eliminate the Filibuster

335 so far! Let’s get to 500 signers!

I am writing to ask you to do everything in your power to abolish the filibuster. As long as the filibuster remains a tool of the minority party, Republicans will be able to block climate change legislation, the Dream Act, Medicare for All, affordable college, equal pay, gun safety legislation, an increase to the minimum wage, universal pre-k, and any other legislation that will improve people's lives. The filibuster is not something that was written into the Constitution. It is merely a procedural tool of obstruction. Already Senator McConnell eliminated the filibuster to confirm judges when he was the majority leader. Our country is in desperate need of governance and the Senate has been a graveyard run by the Grim Reaper for far too long. If we don't show people what good governance looks like, Democrats may lose the majority in 2022. If we want to have a chance of passing any sort of progressive legislation in Congress, we need to eliminate the filibuster.
