Received this e-mail from Rep. Joe Kennedy III’s (D. MA) U.S. Senate campaign:
Mitch McConnell has a stranglehold on our political system, referring to himself as the “Grim Reaper of the Senate.” He takes actual pride in blocking the meaningful, bold legislation that America desperately wants and needs.
What's worse? He's using archaic Senate rules to his full advantage, holding up the filibuster to stop any and all progressive legislation in its tracks.
We need bold reform in this country. Health care for all. Combatting the climate crisis. Immigration reform. Economic justice. True mental health parity. The only way we'll accomplish any of that is if we get rid of the old rules and old structures that were designed to benefit the few at the expense of the many.
Our people deserve a political process that is inclusive, representative and fair. Joe is fighting for that every day.
Join us. Let's end the filibuster. Restore power to the people's voices.
– Team Kennedy
