Fix the Filibuster

Once again, the U.S. Senate failed to pass an increase in the minimum wage. And it wasn’t for lack of support.

In fact, a majority of U.S. Senators supported giving working families a raise. But Republicans used the power of the silent filibuster to kill the bill and prevent a fair up or down vote on the issue.

We’re calling on the Senate to do the right thing – reform the filibuster and get back to work.

Senator Jeff Merkley

To the U.S. Senate:

It’s time to end the political games that have hijacked the U.S. Senate. We demand rules that allow the Senate to do its job. Reform the filibuster and allow a fair up or down vote on the important issues.
