SUBJECT: Say No to the Party of No! DailyKos is leading the way!

If you haven’t already, add your name to the 20,000 that DailyKos has already amassed to end the filibuster! Because of all that support, they’ve already got meetings with senators next week.


The goal is for the senators to use the constitutionally valid process of a simple majority vote — and we will work to assure that that majority is still Democratic! — at the beginning of the next Congress, this coming January — a golden opportunity, which won’t come our way again for another two years — to change the Senate rule requiring a two-thirds, undemocratic “supermajority” vote to end filibusters and in effect get truly progressive legislation passed.


Don’t let the Senate continue to be the place where good legislation goes to die — particularly more government spending to create new jobs, as in infrastructure and green technology, and thus much-needed demand, to get our economy growing again!

Say No to the Party of No!






[An e-mail from DailyKos, with an online petition to sign]




Here’s a quick update on what we’re doing with the petition to reform Senate rules:


— Thanks to you, we reached our goal of 20,000 signatures.


— Because of the petition, we’re getting meetings with returning Senators to discuss reforming the rules. Four meetings have already been scheduled for next week.


— During these meetings, we’ll get returning Senators on record in support of changing Senate rules with only 51 votes on the first day the Senate is in session in 2011.


We’ll post updates on Daily Kos as new commitments are received. To help out, please tell a friend about the campaign to reform Senate rules:
