It’s downright shameful.
Following months of empty rhetoric and Tea Party pandering, Speaker Boehner and Republican leaders in Congress are doing everything they can to stop progress on putting Americans back to work. Now, they are bringing our government to the brink of shutdown in a brazen ploy to advance their extremist agenda.
That’s right. Republicans are actually trying to sabotage the economy in a cynical ploy to score political points by hurting President Obama and Democrats in Congress.
Enough is enough. With America’s working families struggling to make ends meet, now is not the time for games.
Two weeks ago, President Obama outlined his American Jobs Act and told Congress to “pass this bill” immediately. But instead of getting to work, Boehner and House Republicans are doing everything they can to smear, stall, and obstruct this crucial piece of legislation.
Instead, Republicans are threatening to shut down the government and hold up critically needed disaster funding in a ploy to destroy even more jobs.
We need to put as much pressure as possible on Boehner and Republicans in the House to support the American Jobs Act. With your support, we can show them with sheer numbers that Americans support this bill and Republicans will suffer at the polls if they don’t support it.
Thanks for acting fast,
