Make the filibuster a real filibuster

Too often, good ideas die in the Senate even when they have majority support because a single Senator can tie up the process and prevent an up-or-down vote. They can do this not by mounting an impassioned lengthy floor speech, but by making one quick call and then heading out to dinner.

If Senators want to filibuster, they should be required to stand on the floor and make their case to the American people with a real, talking filibuster.

Sign our petition in support of making the filibuster a real, talking filibuster. We'll deliver the signatures to the Senators who are leading the fight to reform Senate rules, so they can use your support to help make their case to their colleagues.

To all Senators who will serve in the 113th Congress:

Please reform the filibuster so that if Senators want to block a bill with endless “debate," they are required to stand on the floor of the Senate and make their case to the American people with a real, talking filibuster.
