Not another shutdown

Hey -- I wanted to take a minute to fill you in on the current debate going on in Congress. Just two months on the job, the new Congress has taken us to the brink of another shutdown fight -- except this time, it's over funding the Department of Homeland Security. Yes, really. Congressional leaders are threatening a partial government shutdown this upcoming Friday, all because they don't like President Obama's common-sense immigration actions. We've been here before, and we know the only way this nonsense stops is if enough people make their voices heard. Tell congressional leaders right now that you won't stand for another shutdown: my.barackobama.com/Tell-Congress-Not-Another-Shutdown Keep in mind the fact that Speaker Boehner had a chance to help find a comprehensive solution on immigration -- he let a bipartisan Senate bill sit on his desk, untouched and not voted on, for over 500 days last session. That's why the President had no choice but to take common-sense actions to help fix our broken system. Too many families were depending on reform. I don't know about you, but if John Boehner and Mitch McConnell have a problem with that, nothing's stopping them from passing their own legislation. Threats of a partial government shutdown -- over the Department of Homeland Security -- should never be a political tool or some bizarre bargaining chip. If you're sick of these partisan, political games, you really need to join the OFA supporters standing up to say "Enough already." my.barackobama.com/Tell-Congress-Not-Another-Shutdown Thanks -- more to come, Abby Abby Witt Managing Director Organizing for Action

Hey --

I wanted to take a minute to fill you in on the current debate going on in Congress.

Just two months on the job, the new Congress has taken us to the brink of another shutdown fight -- except this time, it's over funding the Department of Homeland Security. Yes, really.

Congressional leaders are threatening a partial government shutdown this upcoming Friday, all because they don't like President Obama's common-sense immigration actions.

We've been here before, and we know the only way this nonsense stops is if enough people make their voices heard. Tell congressional leaders right now that you won't stand for another shutdown.

Keep in mind the fact that Speaker Boehner had a chance to help find a comprehensive solution on immigration -- he let a bipartisan Senate bill sit on his desk, untouched and not voted on, for over 500 days last session.

If you're sick of these partisan, political games, you really need to join the OFA supporters standing up to say "Enough already."
