To be delivered to: Majority Leader Harry Reid, Majority Leader of United States Senate, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Minority Leader of United States Senate, and The United States Senate
The use of the filibuster rule, as now being practiced in the US Senate is creating governmental paralysis at a time when The United States of America faces many challenges, the global Great Recession, rising oil/gas prices, environmental challenges, and educational decline. The American People MUST have a functioning government now more than ever and reforming the filibuster is one step towards fulfilling that need. The filibuster should not be eliminated as it protects the minority from a potentially oppressive majority, but it MUST be reformed.
