pResident Obama made the mission clear

Friend —

President Obama made the mission clear:

We have a message to send to the members of Congress who are trying to shut down the government over Obamacare. Yesterday, the Senate rejected their plan — now there are three days left to pass a budget.

Answer the President’s call — tell John Boehner to stand up to the House Shutdown Caucus:

Don’t wait — the clock’s ticking.

We’ll be in touch as we know more.

Thanks,

Jon

Friend —

Right now, the hard work we’ve put in to get our economy back on track is at risk. And there’s only one reason for it: A group of far-right Republicans in Congress is obsessed with making an ideological point.

They refuse to pass a budget unless I let them sabotage Obamacare, something they know is not going to happen. Now, we’re left with only four days before a government shutdown.

This is reckless and irresponsible. Republicans are not focused on what’s best for you. They’re playing political games.

I called House Speaker John Boehner the other night to tell him that Americans like you have worked too long and too hard to dig our nation out of the financial crisis, and the last thing we need is for Washington to manufacture another.

I want to make sure that message gets through. Add your voice — remind Speaker Boehner that Congress has a job to do.

Passing a budget is the most basic duty the Constitution gives to Congress.

Congress needs to hear from the people who sent them to Washington.

As we get closer to the September 30th deadline, that might mean picking up the phone, getting the facts out to friends on social media, or showing up at your local congressional office. OFA will be asking a lot of you, and I hope you’ll get involved.

Start today by telling Speaker Boehner that Congress must come together to pass a budget:

Thank you,

Barack

    Congress and Obama are making a big deal over something that has happened many times who remembers in the 70s? did it hurt? If so why no history of the bad things?
    WOW DEMOCRATS SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT 17 OUT OF 18 TIMES THEY CONTROLLED THE HOUSE??? BIG DEAL HUH? TERRORISTS HUH? WANT TO HURT THE PEOPLE AND THE ECONOMY HUH? WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE DEMOCRATS AGAIN LIE LIE LIE AND CALL NAMES ABOUT WHAT THEY HAVE DONE MANY TIMES.
    This would be 18th government shutdown in U.S. history
    From NBC’s Pete Williams
    In official parlance, they’re called “spending gaps,” a term the experts prefer to “government shutdown,” because the government doesn’t fully shut down. They’ve been imposed 17 times since 1976, the year Congress began its revised budgeting process.

    Yawn, Mr I Won So STFU, what hard work? The economy is the worst it has ever been since the great depression (it might even be worse). Blacks are beginning to stir due to the issues, MIWSS, and let me clue you in on a couple things, they aren’t impressed the least bit by your rhetoric.

    You, Eric (those guns killed Americans?) Holder, and Harry (screw the American people -- politics over anything) Reid should be brought up on sedition, treason, and any other charge that would put you three away forever.

      HEY -- I finally figured why the DEMOCRATS want to SHUTDOWN the Government --

      OBAMACARE ROLLS OUT TOMORROW . . IT IS NOT READY FOR PRIME TIME AND WILL BE A DISASTER -- CLOSE DOWN WILL ALLOW THEM TO BLAME THE REPUBLICANS FOR OBAMACARE FAILURE.
