I finished jury duty in a civil trial today, so I found myself working from home this afternoon. This gave me the chance to make a couple calls to my senators, something I haven’t done in a while. I asked my senators in today’s calls to get rid of the filibuster, an outdated and racist political weapon which is currently preventing our government from passing key legislation supported by the majority of Americans.
My call script, courtesy of 5 Calls:
Hi, my name is Kevin Gamin and I’m a constituent from Medina.
I’m calling to recommend Senator Sherrod Brown support abolishing the Senate filibuster so Congress can break free from obstruction and gridlock and enact important legislation needed to secure our democracy.
Thank you for your hard work answering the phones.https://5calls.org/issue/end-abolish-senate-fillibuster
I also used Resistbot to send a text version of the above script to both Senators Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman.
Please be sure to call your representatives in Congress and let them know you would like them to abolish the filibuster as well.
