Harry Reid calls for abolishing the filibuster

Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has called on Congress to abolish the filibuster in all of its forms. Reid argued that the procedural rule has turned the Senate into an ’unworkable legislative graveyard’. The rule allows the minority party to block legislation by requiring 60 votes for the Senate to end debate on a bill.
