Our elected leaders are supposed to be working for us–not playing cynical political games. But thanks to a political system that increasingly rewards dysfunction and punishes bipartisanship, our representatives are putting partisan ambitions ahead of representing us.

The lives and livelihoods of everyday Americans are not a bargaining chip. A shutdown threatens national defense, food security, affordable housing, supporting our nation’s veterans, and so many other critical services. When petty partisan gridlock leads to a government shutdown, it’s everyday Americans who pay the price.

Join us in demanding that your Congressional representatives take action to solve this national crisis.
