The stakes are high. Voting rights, health care, climate change, and so much more — they’re all on the line.— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) July 14, 2021
The people who voted and organized and marched expect action. The country demands it.
The path is clear. We must end the filibuster.
There is simply no other way.

President Biden gave a full throated passionate speech calling for Voting Rights to be passed. He said we must act. Ok. ACT!! KILL THE FILIBUSTER!!! SAVE DEMOCRACY!!!!!— Rob Reiner (@robreiner) July 14, 2021
Joe Biden must make voting rights his first priority by ending the filibuster. If that means strong arming Manchin and buttonholing senators on the Hill, then do it. Nothing should be off the table to protect our democracy from Republican attempts to dismantle it.— Robert Reich (@RBReich) July 13, 2021

This is not some ordinary moment—we are at an inflection point and a defining moment in our nation’s history. There is no doubt history will judge us based on what we do right here, right now.— Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock (@SenatorWarnock) July 14, 2021
We must pass federal voting rights legislation. No matter what.
