Our nation is open for business again.
We're open for three weeks...
Let's not let this happen again.
Congress can pass an
"automatic continuing resolution"
which makes sure government is funded,
even when our leaders can't agree on the budget.
There have been many attempts to do this over the years...
usually, right after a shutdown.
All have failed.
As you can imagine,
lawmakers disagree about how to do this...
or even if it's the best course of action...
But it would be something
that would make sure our nation stays
If you feel strongly about this,
let your representatives know!
We're working on a letter that you can
share with your friends
and send to your representatives.
More on that next week...
In the meantime,
as we find our nation
for business once again,
Keep our minds
Keep our hearts
to each other.
"Meet in the Middle" is a Purple Living Room campaign encouraging people from across the political spectrum to meet together each week in order to find common ground. Each middle of the week (WEDNESDAY!) we'll post an update on Purple Living Room Project activities. Share YOUR progress on our Facebook group page or in the comments here. Our goal?
