Looking for patriotic Republicans - 21 have promised to put country first
Those Republicans in the House who refuse to raise the debt limit threaten to do more than plunge the government into default and the world markets into collapse. Their threat to act is a blatant violation of the 14th Amendment, which states that “the validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law” is sacrosanct and “shall not be questioned.” Sean Wilentz, Princeton University.
All that is needed to end this impasse - designed by Tea Party radicals to kill Obamacare - is for enough Republicans (the party of Lincoln) (17 or so) to agree to sign a discharge petition with House Democrats.
No one House has the right to shut down the government. Let’s tell our House members to end this standoff immediately. No terrorist has done more to endanger the US government than the actions of the well planned and funded effort to use a majority in one House to take over the governing from Senate, the Executive and the Supreme Court. All you need to do is send this letter to your Representative. Following up with a phone call will make the email much more effective." Our Advocacy tool will allow you to email your Rep and give you their phone number.
Let's put the government back to work so they can put the country back to work.
Tim Carpenter, National Director
