The Senate Republicans plan to force a vote on the filibuster nuclear option next week. All 44 Democrats, plus Sens. Jeffords, Chafee, and McCain, will vote against changing the rules to cancel the filibuster. That's 47. We need 4 more votes.

The swing votes:

Susan Collins, Maine
Judd Gregg, New Hampshire
Chuck Hagel, Nebraska
Dick Lugar, Indiana
Olympia Snowe, Maine
John Sununu, New Hampshire
John Warner, Virginia

If you're from any of these states, please, PLEASE call or email your senators and tell them you OPPOSE the nuclear option. (Email may be better, since the offices are closed over the weekend.) We need massive support on this, or the Republicans will be that much further to one-party rule. If you have Republican senators who are not on this list, call and/or email them anyway. They're trying to take our democracy away. Let's stop them.

Please post this in your LJ as well. My flist is not huge, and the word on this has to get out.

Thanks for posting this. I've contacted Senator Hagel, and I'll pass the word along.
