Monday night, nine Congressional Democrats showed solidarity — with John Boehner.
They sided with Boehner and the Tea Party Republicans in their attempt to delay the Affordable Care Act — which of course they know they can’t actually do. What they can do — and did — was shut down the government. We want better government, not no government at all.
Tell these nine Representatives that they’ve made a big mistake.
Sign our letter telling Reps. Krysten Sinema, Ron Barber, John Barrow, Steven Horsford, Dan Maffei, Sean Patrick Maloney, Jim Matheson, Mike McIntyre and Raul Ruiz that it’s wrong to side with the Tea Party bullies trying to stop Obamacare.
The government shutdown has already closed HeadStart programs, furloughed workers and even closed medical trials for young cancer patients. And that’s just the beginning — the longer this shutdown continues, the worse it will get, for all of us. Politicians on Capitol Hill need to remember they work for real working people.
Tell these nine Dems that we didn’t send them to Washington, DC to vote with the Tea Party to shut down the government.
