Tell Senate Democrats: Now is the time to pass the talking filibuster
Republicans just blinked in the filibuster fight. Senate Democrats successfully forced votes on a slew of executive branch nominees which Republicans had been blocking. Additionally, Democrats kept the nuclear option in their pocket for another day—retaining the ability to stop Republicans from using the filibuster at any time.
Democrats won a huge victory. 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.
Sign the petition: Restore the talking filibuster.
