Tell Republicans: Stop holding our county hostage [Petition]

In 2017, Republicans blew a $2 trillion hole in the deficit to slash taxes for wealthy Americans and corporations. At the time, I warned that Republicans would eventually force working families to pay for their tax giveaway to the rich. Unfortunately, now I'm being proven right.

Six years later, Republicans are trying to pay for their tax handouts, and as usual, it'll be working families that have to foot the bill. Everything from food assistance for children, to affordable housing, job training programs and more, are on the chopping block.

Instead of forcing billionaires and corporations to pay their fair share, Republicans want to slash the programs that help feed children.

We have to fight back. We cannot let Republicans get away with holding our country hostage.

Join the movement: sign the petition today to tell Republicans to stop holding our country hostage.

Nothing unites Republicans like cutting taxes for the rich and taking food away from kids to pay for it.

A default will be catastrophic for American families, but Republicans don't care. They're willing to use our country as a bargaining chip to get what they want. Republicans are playing with fire, but it's the American people who will get burned.

We've seen this countless times before. I'm sick of it. And I know you are too.

Add your name to tell Republicans to stop holding our economy hostage to fund billionaire tax cuts.

Together we can create a future that works for everyone, not just the wealthy few.
