I believe this issue is so important because if the "nuclear option" goes through, the majority party in congress will have absolute, unchecked power to appoint judges, including Supreme Court judges, and that's not how our country is supposed to work.
Without the right to filibuster to provide a counter balance, President Bush and the radical Republicans can stack the courts with hard-right, pro-corporate ideologues who will slash all the worker protections, environmental protections, anti-discrimination laws and civil liberties that we treasure.
And to see how they intend to force their ideology on our personal, family decisions, just look at how they meddled in the Schiavo family tragedy. This congress does not recognize any limits on their own power, and that's why we must not let them eliminate the filibuster and pack the courts.
Please call 202-224-3121 and ask for your senators today.
And after you call, make sure you click here so it counts towards the 25,000 total!
