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.

Speaker Boehner and reasonable members of Congress need to step up and put an end to this reckless behavior. 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.
