Make Them Talk
There is one thing the obstructionist conservatives in Congress don't want: TV cameras that show them obstructing. And so they are fiercely fighting in the backrooms of the Senate to defeat the Merkley-Harkin-Udall plan to end the practice of filibustering legislation without having to utter a word to the public on the Senate floor. A decision on rule changes is expected next week. If we are going to fix the Senate so the majority will can be exercised again, your Senators need to hear from you immediately.
