Fix The Filibuster, End Paralysis in the US Senate

Posted by ProudlyProgressive on May 15, 2012

This is my first ever e-petition!  It is a simple fix to current Senate rules that would require Senators that want to filibuster and stop government from acting during the Great Recession to ACTUALLY stand on the floor of the Senate and explain to the American People why they are pissing on the wheels of progress! PLEASE show your support and sign here!  SHARE it with your friends and family!


Call/fax/tweet/email your State’s Senator’s and tell them to adopt these new rules and get to work for the American People! Find your Senator’s contact information here.

This chart from a screen shot of The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC shows the dramatic increase in the use of the filibuster since President Obama was sworn into office in 2009 along with the 110th Congress who were also elected in 2008.  The Republican opposition in the US Senate is the most obstructionist in American history and have paralyzed the government’s response to the biggest economic crisis since the Great Depression and they must be stopped! Sign the petition HERE!
