This week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid faces a choice: will he make history by reforming the filibuster in a meaningful way or will he fail to learn the lessons of history and potentially agree to a meaningless compromise on rules reform with Minority Leader Mitch McConnell?
Yesterday, Senator Reid told reporters that the Senate would move to reform the Senate rules, but he left open the possibility of a compromise agreement with Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. Such an agreement would fall short of the substantive package of rules reforms that our country needs to move forward on our most pressing priorities.
There isn’t a moment to lose. Call Senator Reid now and urge him to stand strong for real rules reform in the face of Republican opposition.
To date, supporters of the Fix the Senate Now coalition -- including thousands of members of [ORGANIZATION NAME] -- have sent more than 2.5 million emails, made more than 75,000 phone calls, and delivered nearly one million petition signatures to the Senate.
And yet, with every day that passes more legislation is tied up in the endless gridlock. Every day, more American families grow restless at the Senate’s inability to debate issues of vital importance to our country.
We cannot let this crucial moment pass.
Call Senator Reid at 1-855-973-4213 and urge him to capitalize on this historic opportunity. Tell him to fix the Senate once and for all.
