Democrat Senator Filibusters

His ideas are idiotic, but I credit him for actually filibustering. It’s preferable to the when senators just threaten a filibuster to get their way without ever actually taking to the floor.

A US Democratic senator has led a 14-hour filibuster to demand a vote on gun control legislation following the massacre at a gay club in Florida.

Chris Murphy spoke from Wednesday morning into Thursday. The tactic enables senators to block proceedings.

He said he had secured commitments from Republicans to hold a vote but his recommendations are not likely to pass.
