@RBReich: The filibuster is a tool of white supremacy.In the late 19th century, it was used to protect the pro-slavery Senate minority.The current filibuster was popularized during Jim Crow by Southern senators seeking to block civil rights legislation.It must be abolished.

@PramilaJayapal: Let’s be clear: the filibuster is a tool of voter suppression. It was used to block civil rights. It protected Jim Crow.Now, it’s being used now to block the voting reforms our democracy desperately needs.It’s time to get rid of it and protect the fundamental right to vote.

@RBReich: The same Republicans who are now crying about the deficit are the same people who voted for $2T in tax cuts for the wealth and corporations. Don’t be fooled. The deficit is political tool used by Republicans to block laws that benefit the American people.

@OurRevolution: The filibuster is an outdated Senate tool that gives veto power to a fraction of senators representing as little as 11% of the American population. We cannot allow it to continue standing in the way of progress & a functioning democracy. #EndTheFilibuster @SenJeffMerkley
