DCCC Launches Paid Grassroots to Tell House Republicans to End the #GOPShutdown

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is launching a paid grassroots campaign to tell 63 vulnerable House Republicans to end their government shutdown, a manufactured crisis they created. The DCCC’s automated phone calls connect Americans directly to their Member of Congress so that constituents can tell their representatives to “stop the nonsense and focus on common sense solutions that protect our health care and grow our economy.”

“House Republicans failed – they failed to keep the government open, they failed to negotiate and they failed hardworking American families – all because they are relentlessly trying to take away health care and pad insurance companies’ profits,” said Emily Bittner of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Hardworking Americans will pay the real price for this Republican shutdown. It’s time for House Republicans to put aside politics, stop the nonsense and focus on commonsense solutions that protect our health care and grow our economy.”

 

An example of the call script running against Congressman Tim Walberg is below:

“While you were sleeping, Congressman Tim Walberg shut down the government. You heard that right. But even worse – Congressman Walberg is still getting paid – and he’s just not listening to our frustration. All because of his demand to take away your benefits and protect insurance company profits.

Press 1 to be connected with Congressman Walberg and tell him to end the shutdown, stop the nonsense and focus on commonsense solutions that protect our health care and grow our economy.”
