Tell Congress to Get Back to Work!Posted: October 1, 2013
|Already today we’ve heard from many of you who are disappointed by Congress’ failure to come together and find a solution to avoid the government shut down. But there is hope. There remain mainstream Republicans (and RMC allies) who understand that dialogue and discussion are not a sign of weakness but are the keys to moving forward. Here are recent statements from just a few of these commonsense leaders:
Congressman Charlie Dent (R-PA) spent Monday trying to convince fellow mainstream Republicans to to take a stand against the extremists, “I think now it’s imperative that we just fund the government, get on with the business of governing.”
Similarly, Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) said that what is playing out in Washington “is an effort to clearly raise the profile in terms of why the Affordable Care Act is not working, why we really haven’t worked to reform health care. But does it solve the problem that we’re dealing with? No, it really doesn’t.”
Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) echoed this call for a return to practical, solutions-based policy. “We have an obligation to govern and it does not make sense to link defunding ObamaCare, as much as I’d like to see that come about, with a measure that is essential to keep government funding.”
We need to show these commonsense conservatives that they are not standing alone. Join us today in telling Congress to get back to work! If you have recently made a donation- Thank you!
