In case you missed it, here's the latest plan being pushed by some members of the House: Cut all funding for Obamacare, or shut down the government. Congress has until September 30th to pass a budget, and these representatives think this is the best time to wage a fight against a law that is already helping millions of Americans.
The federal budget is how we determine our priorities as a country. Congress is deciding whether we give more tax breaks to corporations, or fund programs for our country's schools, or—yes—help people get access to affordable health care. It's going to be up to Speaker John Boehner to decide if he's going to let these folks play these kinds of games.
President Obama has a budget plan to grow the economy from the middle out—not the top down. Because unless we make investments to help the middle class to grow, we'll never do more than move from one fiscal crisis to the next.
We don't need more obstructionism from some members of Congress. And we certainly don't need a government shutdown. This country deserves better—if you agree, add your name today to stand up to the extreme proposals in the House.
