The following is from Congresswoman Robin Kelly:
This morning at 12:01am, Congressional Republicans shut down the government.
Millions of Americans are going to suffer — seniors, veterans, students, businesses, and workers — while those responsible for the shutdown get paid.
Democrats in Congress need to hear that the public is on their side in this fight and we need them to stand strong.
This shutdown will end in one of two ways:
- Democrats will cave and cut vital programs like Social Security or
- Republicans will cave to immense public pressure.
Flooding Democrats’ offices with phone calls will make sure it’s not option 1. We’re also running online ads targeting Republican Speaker John Boehner to make sure he feels extra pressure back home.
Thanks for being a bold progressive.
From Turning Left:
Thank you, thank you all, for being bold progressives!
Stay true, and reclaim America from the Tea Baggers!
