It's Friday afternoon and you're probably not watching C-SPAN, so I want to fill you in on what just went down.
House Speaker John Boehner has handed the reins over to an extreme group of Republicans who are willing to sabotage the economy over Obamacare -- and they just got to push their plan through.
We're 10 days from a government shutdown, and John Boehner just brought us closer to the brink.
This is heading for a showdown -- now is the time to add your name to the Americans who are saying, "Enough already."
We can see that this group in the House is so intent on playing games over Obamacare -- today's vote was their 42nd attacking it -- that they're willing to shut down the government over it.
Maybe John Boehner thinks the American people will just chalk this all up to "how Washington works," but from what I can tell, we're smarter than that. At a press conference right after the vote, Speaker Boehner said, "We had a victory today for the American people, and frankly, we also had a victory for common sense."
Really? It's not common sense to take away affordable health care from millions of Americans -- and it's definitely not common sense to risk a government shutdown over it.
Congress has until September 30th to work together to pass a budget -- and instead of being a leader who finds common ground, John Boehner has put the people with the crazy plan in charge.
He's basically daring you to fight back.
Add your name to tell Speaker Boehner that we can -- and will -- hold Congress accountable:
Thanks -- more on this soon.
