Our country cannot make meaningful progress without ending the Senate filibuster. For decades, the filibuster has been used to protect racist policies and block progress in the Senate, giving a minority of senators the ability to hold legislation hostage. We need to get rid of this antiquated procedural hurdle and open the door to meaningful progressive change.

Congressional Democrats and the President need to play hardball, just the way republicans always do. We are running out of time to save American democracy and if we don’t, the ‘American experiment’ will become a failure.
