Senate Filibuster Reform

Public Affairs Event

Senior Republican policy advisers talked about proposed rule changes to the Senate filibuster. They said Democratic efforts to curb the rule’s use would obstruct Senate Republican’s from offering amendments and give Democrats power over the chamber’s agenda. They argued the filibuster was a powerful tool frequently used by both parties to block or delay Senate action on a bill. 
At the time of the program, “Filibuster ‘Reform’ or 'Power Grab': A Discussion of the Senate’s Rules,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) was seeking changes to filibuster rules in the 113th Congress. The procedure allows a single member of Congress to extend debate with the intent to delay or prevent a vote on a proposal. The only way to end a filibuster is through a cloture vote, which requires 60 votes rather than a simple majority. Since 2007, the Senate minority party had forced the majority to attempt to break a filibuster over 380 times, more than doubling recent historical annual averages.

Q&A with Robert Caro, Part 1

Q&A

Robert Caro discussed his newly released fourth volume of his biography of former President Johnson, The Years of Lyndon Johnson: The Passage of Power. The fourth book covers 1958 until early 1964. Mr. Caro said that President Johnson sought the presidency, yet the nomination went to John F. Kennedy. He detailed Vice President Johnson’s poor treatment at the hands of Kennedy staff, and his acrimonious relationship with Robert F. Kennedy. He described President Johnson’s leadership following President Kennedy’s assassination, and his skill at moving several major pieces of legislation through the House and Senate after he became president, which Mr. Caro suggests planted the seeds for President Johnson’s “War on Poverty” program. 
Robert Caro was born and raised in New York City and graduated from Princeton University with a Bachelor of Science degree in English. He won Pulitzer Prizes for biography in 1975 and 2003, and has been researching Lyndon Johnson since 1977.
