Why Democrats are threatening to revisit filibuster reform

Why Democrats are threatening to revisit filibuster reform | Democratic Politics | Scoop.it

by JON TERBUSH

 

Since Democrats scrapped robust filibuster reform from their agenda earlier this year, Republicans have effectively blocked votes on cabinet appointees, budget measures, and a ban on assault weapons.

 

Irked by the repeated obstruction, some Democrats now want to revisit the filibuster as a way to force the GOP to the negotiating table — or to circumvent Republicans entirely.

 

On Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Reid revived the threat of filibuster reform after Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) blocked progress on a stop-gap measure to fund the government, and demanded that Reid instead schedule a vote on an amendment to replace the automatic budget cuts contained in the sequester. The move prompted Reid to say that the Senate may "have to reassess all the rules, because right now they accomplish so little."

 

What Reid meant was a reassessment, once again, of the Senate's rules governing filibusters, the arcane vote-stalling tactic that critics say is being chronically abused — so much so that the Senate can barely fulfill its governing duties.  MORE

They SHOULD reform the filibuster, no one actually does it anyway - just makes the threat.

Excerpted...

 

Progressive profiling, sometimes referred to as a dynamic form, is a feature of marketing automation platforms that allows you to select which form fields appear based on the information you already have about a particular lead. This allows you to collect new information about a prospect each time they fill out a form. This means shorter, less repetitive forms for your leads and more valuable information in the long run for you. It’s an easy win-win that reduces the friction of conversion and allows you to build relationships more naturally.

 

Getting more conversions is all about reducing friction for your prospects. You want to overcome all objections and hesitations to make the conversion process as smooth as possible. Progressive profiling helps to smooth out the process on a number of fronts.

 

Because you are collecting more information over time, you are able to keep your forms shorter (we recommend no more than 4 form fields) and easier to complete. By never asking the same question twice, you are also able to avoid annoying repetition in your fields. Both improvements make form completion a smooth, more natural process for your prospects.
