Letter to the Editor

Since the Democrats took control of the Senate the Republicans have used the filibuster to block almost everything. The filibuster is just a Senate rule and not part of the Constitution and is supposed to only be used in extreme cases rather than all the time. The Democrats can get rid of the filibuster doing a procedure called “the nuclear option” to get the Senate back to a 51 vote majority rather than this artificial 60 vote threshold. America voted and we won and it’s time for us to rule. So I’m asking the Dems in the Senate to go nuclearand get rid of the filibuster.
