Merkley Wants to Fix the Filibuster Rule


Senator Jeff Merkley wants to fix filibuster rule. Currently, when a Senator files an objection to a bill, the Senate shuts down for a week, unless there's a 60-vote override. Merkley and other recently elected Senators will try to force a rule change. It's difficult to do and has to happen on the first day of the session. They need 51 votes. It’s only happened a couple of times in the Senate's history.
