Start the Government Back Up!

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives

Petition Statement

Congress, vote to fund the government and send 800,000 people back to work!
There are currently 36 signatures. We need 50 signatures!

Petition Background

Today Congress fell behind on its basic responsibilities to keep the lights on and our doors open in federal offices around the country. As a result, 800,000 workers are taking an unpaid day off today and for the foreseeable future. That's a terrible idea, both for the economy and for the nation. Congress needs to know we want them to turn the lights back on!
