On Tuesday, members of Congress return to Washington from summer recess -- and there's a lot of work waiting for them.
It's easy to get discouraged about our chances of making progress. After all, this has been the least productive Congress in modern history, thanks to some extreme voices in the House who seek gridlock.
Today, in spite of that, I'm asking you not to be cynical -- because that only makes those voices stronger. They're counting on passionate Americans tuning out and giving up at times like this.
We refuse to let that cynicism win out -- stand up with me today and send a message to those leaders in Congress that we expect them to get to work for the American people, and we're not going away.
The truth is there's only one way that these folks get away with nonsense like wasteful lawsuits against the President, failing to lift a finger to fix our broken immigration system, or threatening to shut down the government AGAIN.
They get away with it because too many people have come to expect nothing better from Washington.
That cynicism gives the other side a pass they don't deserve.
I refuse to let it be a foregone conclusion that leaders in Congress can't come together to get something done for the American people.
These people work for us. We should be frustrated. We should be outraged. And we should speak up. President Obama put it this way: "Cynicism is a choice -- and hope is a better choice."
Add your name today and say you refuse to be cynical:
