Fix the filibuster

Dear Editor:

I am a retired psychotherapist. I am concerned that the filibuster as it now works does not encourage senators to engage with those holding opposing views and try to find common goals and try to come up with a compromise. It is set up to simply allow one side to block another in what it wants to accomplish. It is set up to reinforce power over democracy, and to allow senators to disregard the will of the people including their constituents. As voting is restricted our values as a democracy will be increasingly constricted.
