Rep. Roskam: Grow the Middle Class

To be delivered to Rep. Peter Roskam (IL-6)

Petition Statement

Instead of playing politics with the federal budget and creating fiscal uncertainty, we call on you to grow the middle class by ending the sequester, investing in jobs and education, and closing corporate tax loopholes.
There are currently 355 signatures. NEW goal - We need 400 signatures!

Petition Background

Congress has 5 days scheduled before the Sep. 30 budget deadline to avoid a government shutdown. But some Republicans won't even negotiate unless Obamacare is defunded — and they're using the deadline to gain leverage.

We need Rep. Peter Roskam to prioritize expanding the middle class during the budget debate. Unless we act quickly, he may join with Republicans like Rep. Paul Ryan and support more cuts to education, healthcare, and other vital services.
