Paragraph: Legislature in the United States government – especially the senate – has a great amount of power from approving supreme court justices, secretary of executive branches, approve treaties with foreign governments, and finally passing a law. However, under the senate rule, each senator can withhold or prevent the bill from being passed by almost abusing the filibuster and hold rule; these two rules stated under the senate create an opportunity for the senators to have an infinite amount of time for a debate and prevent the voting from taking place to pass a bill. This is problematic because filibusters and holds prevent congress from passing any bills and sending them to the president. To create an effective legislature that can meet people’s needs, creating a reform to rules by limiting the amount in which senators can debate is important for the effective representation of people and democracy.
Thesis: Because of the inefficiency created in the Senate, changing the rule of the senatorial filibuster and hold by creating a time limit is important to create an efficient legislature.
