Summary
The 112th Congress - the least productive in the record books - ground to a halt as Republicans mounted scores of filibusters to stop bills, nominations, and judicial appointments. As a result, there are more judicial vacancies today than when Barack Obama took his first oath of office. In this edition of Moyers & Company, Larry Cohen, president of the 700,000-member Communications Workers of America, joins Bill to make the case for commonsense reform that would bring the Senate back to serving democracy. Cohen is a leader of the Democracy Initiative, a coalition of nearly 100 progressive organizations campaigning to change the filibuster rules.
