Filibuster abuse kept one of President Obama's nominees in limbo for 730 days. In total, 161 nominees were left pending before a long overdue agreement was reached. It's entirely unacceptable.
Americans deserve better than nonstop bickering and nonstop gridlock. It doesn't matter if the president's a Democrat or a Republican, he or she deserves to have qualified nominees confirmed.
The Senate's role is "advise and consent," not obstruct and delay.
Sign the petition in support of filibuster reform now.
