Close the House and Senate Gyms during the Shut Down

To be delivered to House Tea Party Republicans

Petition Statement

While thousands are affected by the shutdown with furloughs, inability to attend Head Start, inability to get small business loans, and the disgraceful delay in death gratuities for families of servicemen killed by insurgents this past weekend in Afghanistan, our House and Senate members enjoy the pleasure of gyms with basketball courts, saunas, paddleball, pools, and more. It makes absolutely no sense for them to continue to enjoy the perks of office while they cannot take care of their responsibilities to us, the people who employ them.
There are currently 534 signatures. NEW goal - We need 750 signatures!

Petition Background

This petition is started because our elected Representatives are in default to the American people on their Constitutional duties to work in the best interest of the people. The TeaParty led Republicans in the House are an organized insurrection and are in violation of Section 3 of the XIV Amendment and as such are not governing ethically and responsibly.

Since they are acting in organized fashion, it is not reasonable to think that they will remove themselves, so we are petitioning for their gyms and all other amenities to be SHUTDOWN NOW!

And these amenities should remain shutdown until such time as they remember that they were elected to work together and open our Government.
