Senator Harry Reid: End the filibuster in the US Senate

      San Francisco, CA

The Senate has effectively ceased to funtion due to the abuse of outdated, 18th century obstructionist rules like the filibuster and anonymous holds. When the new Congress convenes there will be a single opportunity for the adoption of new Senate rules by simple majority vote. Please do not miss this chance to make our govenrment work again. I suggest as a model the rules for the Senate originally drafted for it by Thomas Jefferson; they are currently known as the House rules.
