Sen. Kirk: Don't Defund Obamacare

To be delivered to Sen. Tammy Duckworth (IL-2)

Petition Statement

Instead of playing politics and creating fiscal uncertainty, we urge you to support a federal budget that grows the middle class by ending the sequester, investing in jobs and education, and closing corporate tax loopholes.
There are currently 4,921 signatures. NEW goal - We need 5,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Instead of working to expand the middle class, House Republicans passed a temporary budget that would defund Obamacare and maintain deep cuts to education, job training, and other vital services.

Soon, the Senate will vote whether to pass the House budget as it is or modify it so that Obamacare is funded. That's why we need Senator Mark Kirk to stand with the people of Illinois, not extremists like Sen. Ted Cruz who would risk our nation's fiscal security to defund Obamacare and gain political leverage.
