SIGN PETITION: Don't Let Republican Leadership "Go Nuclear" on Supreme Court

We could lose our fight against a right-wing Supreme Court takeover before a vacancy and nomination occur if Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist can get 50 votes to pass the “nuclear option,” which would target the 200-year-old Senate filibuster – a tool that empowers 41 or more senators to prevent a narrow majority from abusing its power.

Frist needs the votes of half the Senate plus Vice President Cheney’s tie-breaker to succeed. That means we must win the votes of all 44 Democratic senators, the one Independent, and at least six courageous Republicans to stop him. That’s why we need you to sign the petition that will go to senators whose vote we need to win this fight – and then pass it on!
