Reforming a Broken Senate: Conclusion

When the Senate reconvenes for 2011, the first order of business should be eliminating secret holds and abuse of the filibuster, commonsense reforms that will allow the chamber to run more smoothly. This is neither a partisan nor ideological issue. The question is not whether legislation or nominations blocked by filibuster are good or bad, but whether the American people will be better served by up or down votes that will allow voters to hold senators accountable on Election Day. Staying the course is unacceptable.
