JANUARY 6 COMMISSION FAILURE – END FILIBUSTER. Important to use the successful Republican filibuster of the bipartisan Jan. 6 Commission to urge Sinema in particular to end her refusal to reform the filibuster. Even Sen. Machin was disgusted by the successful filibuster, tweeting last Thursday that the commission met all Republican demands and there was no reason they should have voted against it.
Sample voice mail for either Senator: “My name is XXXX and I live in XXXXX.
I WAS SO DISMAYED THAT EVEN A BIPARTISAN COMMISSION THAT MET ALL REPUBLICAN CONDITIONS WAS FILIBUSTERED. WHILE I APPRECIATE YOUR EFFORTS TO OBTAIN TEN REPUBLICAN VOTES, ITS NOW CLEAR WE NEED TO REFORM OR GET RID OF THE FILIBUSTER. IT WE COULDN’T GET THE COMMISSION ESTABLISHED THERE WILL BE NO WAY TO GET IMPORTANT THINGS YOU SUPPORT, LIKE VOTING RIGHTS, PASSED INTO LAW.
