3. thanks for the info. Contacted both Senator Boxer and Senator Leahy. Now I will continue

with Senators Feinstein and Levin.

If or when you contact them let them know this: The senate republicans used the silent filibuster many, many times (100+ in Obama's first year); President Obama only had a super majority from Sept 24, 2009 when Paul Kirk was appointed to the late Ted Kennedy's seat until Feb. 4, 2010 when Scott Brown won the Mass. special election; the affordable care act would not have passed without a super majority which also included Arlen Specter changing parties; If more silent filibusters are allowed the senate Rs will obstruct and hold this country hostage, blame democrats and the president for not getting anything done which could give the Rs wins in 2014 (house and senate); continued obstructionism could hurt either Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden bid for president in 2016. Continued use of the silent filibuster is democrats fault.
