Petition to House Republicans:
As the irresponsible government shutdown continues, the U.S. is rapidly approaching another potential financial crisis.
By October 17th, Congress must act in order to allow the U.S. Treasury to pay the government's current outstanding bills.
But Tea Party Republicans in Congress are threatening to wreak havoc on our economy unless their radical ideological demands are met.
Failing to meet this responsibility would have a devastating effect on our economic recovery and would have a strong destabilizing effect on the global economy.
It is simply irresponsible to put the full faith and credit of the United States at risk.
Sign the petition and tell Speaker John Boehner and House Republicans: Don't hold our economy hostage.
