Appoint Barney Frank as interim Senator from Massachusetts

To be delivered to The Massachusetts State House, The Massachusetts State Senate, and Governor Deval Patrick

Petition Statement

At a time like this, we need someone with the courage, the conviction and the experience to stand up for seniors and working families in Congress—and we can't think of anyone who would do a better job over the next few months than Barney Frank. Barney will take on conservative Republicans in Congress who want to cut Social Security and Medicare and play politics with the full faith and credit of the United States. Tell Deval Patrick: appoint Barney Frank as the interim Senator from Massachusetts.
There are currently 8,456 signatures. NEW goal - We need 10,000 signatures!

Petition Background

In the next few months, Congress is going to debate some incredibly important issues, like the debt ceiling, mandatory budget cuts, and a possible government shutdown. Republicans have made it clear they will fight to cut domestic spending and the Social Security and Medicare I've worked for and paid into all my life. Barney Frank has never been afraid of a fight, and if appointed to the Senate to replace John Kerry, he won't back down in defending working families and seniors like me.
