SIGN THE PETITION: It's time to end the filibuster.

Sign the petition
An outdated Senate procedural rule, the filibuster, has evolved to require a 60-vote supermajority to pass virtually any important legislation in the Senate.  It's time to end the filibuster in its current form. If you agree, sign my online petition to tell our elected and party leaders it's time change the filibuster.

Petition Text

In order to get the strong health care changes we need ? and enact countless other popular initiatives ? we must revisit the filibuster, which smothers good ideas and stifles real progress in Washington.

I urge our leaders in Washington to end the filibuster in its current form and reform the outdated 60-vote cloture threshold to end the partisan obstructionism currently gripping Washington.
