There are currently 138 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

The purpose of this petition is to communicate to the United States House of Representatives that we, the undersigned, are American citizens who want to impeach and remove from office Representives John Boehner, Eric Cantor and other Tea Party Republicans, and Senator Ted Cruz, for abuse of power. Abuse of power is cited in the U.S. Constitution as an impeachable offense. These individuals forced the shutdown of the Federal Government contrary to the will of the majority of the members of the House, the U.S. Senate, and the American people. This shutdown is harming the American people.

Background: In order to block the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, a law which was passed in 2010 and subsequently upheld by the United States Supreme Court, the above-named individuals recklessly conspired to force the shutdown of the Federal Government.

This shutdown is causing financial, physical and emotional distress and ruin to many thousands of American citizens, including but not limited to: military veterans, hundreds of thousands of Federal employees and contractors who have been furloughed and/or are working without pay, providers of essential services, families and children, the elderly, and countless others.

The government shutdown has brought uncertainty to the nation's and the world's financial markets, and may result in creating another recession in the United States of America and the entire world.

Additionally, Representatives Boehner, Cantor, and some others in the United States House of Representatives rigged the rules so that only they or their designees can bring the government shutdown matter to a vote in the House of Representatives. These individuals have refused to bring the matter to a vote.

Their abuse of power, their reckless and irresponsible actions are causing great harm to the American people and the world; therefore, we petition that Boehner, Cantor, Cruz and others be impeached and removed from office.
