The Senate places the agenda and bill voting in the hands of the Speaker of the Senate, who is voted into that position by the majority party of that branch. That speaker can permanently table the calling up a bill for voting on and passage. Important bills often languish on this speakers desk because he does not want possible passage of a bill his own political party is against. This is far too much power put into one man's hands. It has now evolved into an anti-citizen , evil approach to fair government. Currently, on Harry Reid holds that post and we can clearly see the damage his non-calling for votes has done to our country. The Senate and House should change this system,now.
