What do the Dream Act, the Bring Jobs Home Act, and the Disclose Act have in Common?
They probably would have passed if it weren't for the silent filibuster1 - where a single Senator can paralyze the Senate without even saying a word.
Like all of us, many Senators are frustrated with the lack of progress. That's why Senators Udall and Merkley have introduced Resolution 4 - which would replace the silent filibuster with the good old Mr Smith Goes to Washington talking filibuster, so that Senators would at least have to explain their objections.
Rhode Island's own Senator Jack Reed is one of seven Democrats who hasn't made up his mind yet.
Add your voice to the growing chorus of Rhode Islanders calling for an end to Washington gridlock and obstructionism, and ask Senator Reed co-sponsor Resolution 4 today!
