Shut down the government?

Dear Ohio Council 8 Member,

Here we go again. In just a few days, our country faces the threat of another government shutdown, all over a multi-billion dollar game of chicken President Trump and extremists in Congress are playing with our nation’s budget.

If our government shuts down, it will be because President Trump has threatened to veto any budget that does not defund key pieces of the Affordable Care Act, and pay for a $1.4 billion down payment on his proposed border wall.

Call your Senators today and tell them to pass a clean budget that supports working families and does not cut health care for millions.

If this budget stalemate results in a government shutdown, even funding for state and local public service workers is affected. A shutdown could cost us the resources we need to do our jobs, and it will cost our communities the public services they rely on.

For our communities, for our families and for our country, we need to stop this shutdown before it happens.

Call your Senators today and tell them to pass a clean budget that supports working families and does not cut health care for millions.

Those of us who spend every day making our communities stronger, safer and healthier know how important it is to keep the government running. Make sure Congress and President Trump know our communities are depending on them.

In solidarity,

Lee Saunders
AFSCME President
