Support Senator Rob Portman's End Government Shutdowns Act
Sign This Petition
by Stop Government Shutdowns Forever | 2.2.19
There is a great deal of movement in both the Democratic AND Republican parties to STOP government shutdowns forever! I ask you to please show these Congressmen and women on both sides of the aisle that it is unacceptable to do government shutdowns by signing this petition and sharing it with the world.
Government shutdowns forced 4 MILLION Americans, who are Federal Contractors (i.e. IT, Maintenance, Janitorial, etc.) to LOSE 2 PAYCHECKS and they did NOT receive ANY backpay. And although the 800,000 Federal Employees did receive backpay, everyone had to strip their savings, go further into debt on credit cards or by taking out loans... everyone was stressed, NOT shopping or participating in the local economy. I, for one, did not shop for 40 days. The ones out there reading that who understand that the struggle is real, as they say, thank you for your compassion... for those who don't, it's not fun... We did not go out to eat or do anything "extra." We returned holiday gifts and my birthday gift. And for what? For a wall? A wall that can be dug under (which there are many tunnels along the present barrier we already have). A wall can be climbed over. Congressman Braulio Guerra, from the state of Queretaro tweeted his photos of climbing over the useless, overpriced barrier: https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/mexican-congressman-climbs-us-border-fence-illustrate-trumps/story?id=45877797
What we NEED is for our government to work! STOP Government Shutdowns Forever!
We DO NOT NEED to have government shutdowns... Congress may simply pass continuing resolutions to keep all spending at current levels until a budget is passed for the subsequent year. They ALREADY do this ALL the time!
No one needs to be taken hostage, miss or lose two paychecks, strip their savings, go into debt, and endure financial stress over the government passing a budget! Let's Team Up and STOP Government Shutdowns Forever!
Republican Ohio Senator Rob Portman "told reporters Tuesday he hopes lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are ready to approve a bill that will end government shutdowns once and for all."

Senator Rob Portman "introduced the 'End Government Shutdowns Act' earlier this year. It was the fifth time he's tried to permanently prevent government shutdowns, but this time around, Portman has garnered 19 co-sponsors just among his GOP colleagues, with Democrats clamoring to sign on as well, according to a Portman spokesman. Perhaps most notably, two of the four GOP negotiators tapped to hammer out a government funding compromise by Feb. 15 have signed on to Portman's effort."

Senator "Grassley is one of 19 cosponsors of a bill authored by Ohio Sen. Rob Portman that would automatically approve some government funding even if Congress fails to pass new spending bills."
