In an incredible abuse of power, Mitch McConnell staged 420 filibusters since he became Minority Leader in 2007. It’s the highest rate of obstruction in history – but a badge of honor for McConnell, who once declared himself the “proud guardian of gridlock.”
Now, after nearly three decades in Washington, McConnell is the embodiment of political dysfunction. He used partisan gridlock to kill job growth, stop aid to small businesses, hurt women’s ability to gain equal pay for equal work, and cut benefits for seniors and veterans.
America needs senators who put the real issues first. Tell Mitch McConnell to stop the GOP gridlock right now. Progress can’t wait another day.
