Dear President Biden,
I am writing to ask you to support filibuster reform. According to The Brennan Center, so far this year 43 states have introduced over 253 bills to restrict voting access, using racist conspiracy theories as their weak justification. Many of these bills would make it harder for communities of color to vote.
If Congress can pass HR1/S1, most of these bills introduced in the state legislatures would not be viable. But the truth is if we don't eliminate or reform the filibuster then all the progressive legislation we have worked so hard for, including the For the People Act, will die on the Senate floor. Worse, with Republicans in the states making it so hard to vote, Democrats will find it close to impossible to maintain our thin majority.
For the sake of the American people, I am asking you to support filibuster reform so that we can have a government that works for the people.
