Republicans Filibuster Disclosure Bill
On Monday, the vote was 51 to 44 on a motion to end the filibuster by Republicans. Since the motion needed 60 votes, the filibuster was continued. Democrats tried again on Tuesday, and the vote was 53 to 45 -- again not enough to end the filibuster.
This is further proof that the Republicans are not interested in maintaining our democracy. They want a plutocracy -- rule by the rich. And it's another reason to vote against them in November.
