  •  Abolish Filibuster & Anonymous Holds and (7+ / 0-)

    RETURN the US Senate to Majority Rule.

    Filibuster in the United States Senate:

    "A filibuster in the United States Senate usually refers to any dilatory or obstructive tactics used to prevent a measure from being brought to a vote."
    Senate Hold:
    "In the United States Senate, a hold is a parliamentary procedure permitted by the Standing Rules of the United States Senate which allows one or more Senators to prevent a motion from reaching a vote on the Senate floor."
    Neither of these rules has any hint of democratic value to them. They are intended to obstruct the democratic process.
