Second Filibuster Letter to Boxer

Barbara BoxerDear Senator Boxer:

Thank you for your automated response. I know that the Senate made changes that now allow the majority to bring bills to the floor faster where the Republicans will filibuster them. (Admittedly, not always successfully.)

My letter regarded the rumored July “nuclear option.” I guess it is the nature of politics that I cannot even get a straight answer on this issue from my one good Senator even when she is more than 5 years away from re-election. But I think I deserve at least the courtesy of registering that I want you to support Harry Reid and the “nuclear option” to allow Obama nominees to get a vote in the Senate.

Once again: I want you to support Harry Reid and the “nuclear option” to allow Obama nominees to get a vote in the Senate.

Also: I want you to support Harry Reid and the “nuclear option” to allow Obama nominees to get a vote in the Senate.

And finally: I want you to support Harry Reid and the “nuclear option” to allow Obama nominees to get a vote in the Senate.

This is not just about filibuster reform. Yes, I would have liked it if more were done. But this is a big deal. I really want you to know that I want you to support Harry Reid and the “nuclear option” to allow Obama nominees to get a vote in the Senate.

-Frank

PS: I want you to support Harry Reid and the “nuclear option” to allow Obama nominees to get a vote in the Senate.
