Preserve the Filibuster

SPRINGFIELD, Virginia - Campaign for Liberty today called on the Senate to reject Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s calls to weaken the Senate Filibuster to rush approval on presidential nominations:

“Senate rules are specifically designed to allow all Senators to make their voices heard,” said Campaign for Liberty President John Tate. “Rather than listen to legitimate concerns, Harry Reid apparently prefers to ram through President Obama’s agenda.  During the Bush years, Senator Reid defended the filibuster when it suited his minority party’s interests. If the Senator one day finds himself again in the minority, I expect he will quickly and deeply regret this power play.”
