Tell Congress: No Deal, No Break is a nonpartisan campaign delivering a simple message to Washington: don't take any breaks until you reach a deal that brings our debt to a sustainable level. <div><br> <div><span style="LINE-HEIGHT: 1.45em">By joining the cause you'll help communicate this message to Congress. You'll also learn how the nation's debt threatens our future.&nbsp;</span></div></div> <div><span style="LINE-HEIGHT: 1.45em">The campaign is led by a group of nonpartisan organizations concerned about America's future, including the <a href="">Comeback America Initiative</a><a href=""></a>, <a href="">The Can Kicks Back</a>, the <a href="">Common Sense Coalition</a>, and <a href="">The Concord Coalition</a>&nbsp;and others.</span></div>

President Obama's State of the Union address outlined the many challenges and issues facing our nation. What's the best way to make progress and begin to solve these issues? Taking a break, of course! Neither house of Congress is in session during the entire week of President's Day, from the 18th to the 22nd. Instead, they will be home in their districts with their constituents. If you think that being at home is not the best use of members' time, especially when so much is at stake, sign this petition telling members of Congress they should stay in Washington, D.C. and get the job done.
