民主党籍参议员Joe Manchin (西维吉尼亚）和 Krysten Sinema（亚利桑那） 表示过不支持废除Filibuster。民主党左派阵营正在对他们施加很大的压力，让他们改变想法。我们保守派爱国者也必须赶快行动，给他们发信，打电话，敦促他们坚守信念，不要反水。

Dear Senator XXXX:
I, XXX, a US citizen from XXX, urge you to reject efforts to abolish the legislative filibuster. Such a move would effectively stamp out minority rights in the United States Senate and have irreparable, negative effects on our country. I fully echo the following view in January 25 letter to the Senate from Heritage Action for America and its alliances:
“The legislative filibuster is an essential part of ensuring a strong system of checks and balances. While we typically do not weigh in on Congressional procedure, we believe elimination of the legislative filibuster could result in a slew of destructive policy changes.
For decades, members of both parties have sought to protect the rights of the minority party in the Senate to shape policy, including the right of extended debate. This has been the most distinctive feature of the U.S. Senate as an institution for more than 200 years and defines the way that the Senate participates in the legislative process. The legislative filibuster has been used by both parties, and while it can be a frustration to the party in power, it helps to ensure that policy is sustainable and reflective of the entire country – not just those with temporary control in the Senate. As recently as 2017, 61 Senators, including 32 Democrats, stated clear opposition to “any effort to curtail the existing rights and prerogatives of Senators to engage in full, robust, and extended debate as we consider legislation before this body in the future.” The principles of this bipartisan statement ring true today.
