Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is a new Progressive Secretary letter.

This letter supports actions by a wide variety of organizations from the environmental group, Evergreen to Ms. Magazine to the Brennan Center for Justice to the consumer group, Consumers United for Fairness. Individual supporters include Bill Moyers, former senator, Harry Reid, every Democratic and Independent senator except Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and Joe Manchin (D-WV).

We will send your letters to your Senators
.

End the filibuster now. Implemented to protect slave owners and kill civil rights legislation, the filibuster has a sordid history.

It’s not part of the Constitution. James Madison ardently opposed the filibuster as a tactic to abrogate majority rule, a tenet of the democracy he and others fought to give America.

Constant filibusters and the ensuing cloture process paralyze the Senate. It ensures that members have less time to legislate.

To eliminate the filibuster is to accept that opponents may win elections and to risk their agenda passing into law. But it would eliminate the paralysis that has defined the Senate in recent years. It would also re-establish “majority rule,” as our founders envisioned.

Vote to end the filibuster.

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
