Thank you Harry Reid

From over at Left Action:

Send a message to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Democrats, and let them know you stand with them on their bold and sensible move to fight back against Republican filibuster abuse.

Since President Obama took office, Mitch McConnell and his Republican colleagues have waged filibusters at a level unprecedented in Senate history. In an incredible abuse of power, they have used it to consistently block the will of the majority by blocking up-or-down votes from even taking place.

Worst of all, they have blocked a series of eminently qualified judicial and executive nominees from taking office, depriving America of the key leadership necessary to take on the challenges that face us.

No more. In a bold move, Harry Reid and a majority of Senators have fought back by ending the filibuster on nominations, and requiring an up-or-down vote. Nominees will either be approved or disapproved, but there will be a vote. And 41 senators will no longer be able to block the will of the other 59.

Republicans will no doubt scream and howl, but sensible Americans know this is nothing more than restoring democracy, and making the Senate work again as the Founding Fathers intended.

So please join us in thanking Harry Reid and Senate Democrats. Letting them know you stand with them in taking this critical step.
