There's a group of House Republicans who are testing Americans' patience when it comes to political games.
Even with the September 30th deadline to pass a budget just a few weeks away, these guys are digging in their heels -- willing to sabotage the economy if they don't get their way in delaying or defunding Obamacare.
They're willing to risk delaying small business and student loans, new Social Security benefits, and military paychecks, all in the name of proving their allegiance to their extreme conservative base.
Speaker John Boehner and House leaders need to stand up to these shenanigans and work to pass a smart budget.
Add your name -- speak up and tell them: Enough already.
With just 17 days left to pass a budget, it's time for the people we sent to Washington to get to work representing our best interests.
Passing a budget is one of the primary responsibilities of members of Congress. Instead, they're weirdly focused on tearing down Obamacare -- a law that was passed three years ago and which, by the way, is already helping millions of Americans get better health care.
This group of representatives thinks another symbolic fight over Obamacare will help them win support from a small, cynical faction of their base, who just want to see President Obama fail. This is what we're up against in the fight to pass a real budget, one that continues to grow the economy from the middle out.
I believe that the House Republicans willing to put our economy at risk over political games are in the minority -- we need House leadership to get serious about passing a real budget now.
