I wanted to pass along a quick update on what's going on in Washington right now.
The first thing you need to know is that what you're doing is working -- brand-new polling shows that the House Republicans who caused this shutdown are hitting historic lows in popularity. And, for the first time in this fight, House leadership has acknowledged that they need to come back from the ledge and work on a real solution.
Our voices are being heard. Now, keep going.
We're asking everyone to tweet with the hashtag #EnoughAlready today -- you should send that message to Speaker Boehner and the Tea Party, to your representative, and to anyone else you think needs to hear it.
If you're looking for ideas on things to say, here are a few suggestions:
-- .@SpeakerBoehner, it's time to stand up to the Tea Party Republicans who are sabotaging our economy. #EnoughAlready
-- 11 days of a government shutdown is 11 too many, @SpeakerBoehner. #EnoughAlready
-- Americans want Congress to do its job. @SpeakerBoehner: #EnoughAlready
President Obama has asked Congress to come up with a solution that re-opens the government, pays our bills, and gets back to the business of growing the economy and creating jobs.
Now is the time to send a strong message on Twitter (and anywhere else you want to drive it home). Tell John Boehner and the lawmakers who need to hear from you today -- enough already:
Organizing for Action
P.S. -- We sent a crew out to hear from ordinary Americans about what's going on in Washington -- you won't be surprised to know they're fed up. Take a look at what we heard -- and add your name.
The other side will spend millions to maintain the status quo. We're fighting for change -- chip in $5 or more to support OFA today.
