“The Democrats are now in control of the White House, and have majorities in the House and the Senate and have several massive emergencies they were elected to deal with. However, as Republicans made clear when Obama was President, and with the GOP turning even more nefarious since then, they will ruthlessly try to stymie the Biden administration no matter what they try and accomplish. Their best instrument to undercut democracy from working is Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and the cynical use of the threat of a filibuster. Will Americans (and the Democratic party) really let a misused legislative tactic prevent the government from making any progress on Covid, the economy, health care or anything else? Michael is joined by Adam Jentleson, a former top aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who has written a book about the undemocratic U.S. Senate and the need to kill the filibuster for the sake of democracy.

Call your U.S. Senator! End the Filibuster! Majority Rules, Minority Rights.
