Tell Senate Democrats: Now is the time to pass the talking filibuster
Senate Democrats gained a victory when they ended the filibuster on nominees which Republicans had been blocking. But Republicans are still blocking key legislation, like extending unemployment benefits.
The good news is that Democrats kept the nuclear option in their pocket for another day—retaining the ability to stop Republicans from using the filibuster at any time.
Senate Democrats won a huge victory on nominees. They proved they can bust through a Republican filibuster with a simple majority at any time and that they have the political will to do it.
Now, Democrats need to use that political will to push for real reform and restore the talking filibuster for everything.
Sign the petition: Restore the talking filibuster.
