To be delivered to: The United States Senate
The US Senate rules need to be changed to encourage bipartisan debate in order to conduct the people's business. All Americans have suffered from the inability of Congress to reach consensus in a timely manner on important issues. Part of the problem is time wasted in the Senate by increased rigidity on procedural questions and escalation of the use of the filibuster as a way of impeding legislative progress.
There is still a window of opportunity, but only a few days left, for the Senate to change the rules for the new congressional term.
