Stop the Games, Congress
The refusal of a group of Tea Party Republicans to compromise forced a government shutdown that put hundreds of thousands of Americans out of work, forced children out of Head Start classes, and is harming ordinary families every day.
Now, the same Tea Party faction is threatening a national default on America’s bills, which could cause widespread economic disaster.

Sign below to call on Congress to stop playing games with students, families and the economy. Call on congress to end the federal government shutdown, prevent a national default on our bills, and end sequester cuts to education.
