Virginia House Representatives: End the Shutdown!

Petition Statement

Make good on your statement that you are in support of a clean continuing resolution and demand a vote from Speaker Boehner to get the government running.
There are currently 3,738 signatures. NEW goal - We need 4,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The American and global economies cannot afford the continued shutdown of the federal government or for the U.S. Treasury to stop paying its bills and go into default. For too long, we have relied upon the threat of ‘fiscal cliffs’ to bring about bipartisan budget solutions. This has led to economic uncertainty, hurt families and communities that rely on government programs, and decreased America’s credit rating. Rep. Wolf (VA-10), Rep. Rigell (VA-2), Rep. Forbes (VA-4) and Rep. Wittman (VA-1) have publicly supported the Senate's clean continuing resolution, and we thank them, but statements simply aren't enough when families are going hungry. We need VA to be a leader on this issue and end this shutdown!
