We need to kill the filibuster. The system is broken.
I am fed up. Something is very wrong with our system when one Senator can have more power than 59 others. But that is the reality in today's Senate. Not just health care reform but any legislation can be held hostage by one Senator. Oh yes, Harry Reid is a wienie and that's a big part of the problem too, but we need to stop this unlimited filibuster nonsense. Checks and balances are healthy, but not to this extreme. The system is broken and needs to be fixed.
I urge everyone to get behind Tom Harkin if he does do what is rumored: Tom Harkin May Reintroduce Legislation To Kill Filibuster.
So I made the following graphic. I don't have great software and I am no graphic designer, but I am fed up. Feel free to copy and post the image or make your own better one. It's the idea that matters.
So, admittedly not the greatest diary entry, but sometimes short and to the point is sufficient.
