To be delivered to: The United States Senate
Something is broken in Congress. The filibuster has been distorted into a weapon in a partisan war, effectively making legislative progress impossible, imperiling essential policies supported by the American people, and blocking vitally important judicial nominations. As the fiscal cliff negotiations made clear, Washington is deeply divided. The Senate needs to reform its rules in order to ensure that these divisions do not jeopardize the progress we need to make on jobs, climate change, immigration, and more.
It's time for the Senate to pass common-sense rules reforms to end routine obstruction and ensure that the Senate will once again be able to address the critical issues facing our country.
