Demand the Senate Pass a Government Funding Bill Before Going Home
Republicans paid a price for their radical agenda in the midterms. Democrats beat the odds and outperformed expectations in a historic way, but Republicans did narrowly take control of the House of Representatives which means we must urge MoCs to stay in session and keep working. Congress has from now until January 3, 2023 (Swearing-In Day) to deliver on a long list of priorities.
Republicans are feeling some pressure after their poor performance in the midterms, so now is the time to keep the pressure on them! Democracy and our freedoms were on the ballot this election, and voters overwhelmingly rejected candidates who denied the 2020 election results and who embraced the violent attack on the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Americans didn’t cast their ballots for the type of obstructionism and chaos the ringleaders of the House GOP are promising to sow. Even some Republicans in the Senate admit they understand the turmoil a MAGA majority in the House will create - so we need them to act like it.
That’s why we’re demanding Republicans in the Senate agree to a full year of funding for the government, and passing the funding bill before they leave town. Short term funding bills will only empower the House GOP to force a government shutdown or cause other economic harm. It’s also critical that the Biden administration has the resources it needs to carry out necessary public services. Passing an omnibus funding bill is simply responsible governance. Call your Republican Senator now and demand they vote to pass an omnibus government funding package before they leave DC for the year.

Demand the Senate Stay in Session and Pass Government Funding Bill
Hello, I’m a constituent from [State]. I am very concerned about the uncertainty and chaos that would occur if Congress doesn’t pass an omnibus government funding bill for the full year. Members of the House Republican Caucus have made their intentions to use brinkmanship and threats, harming our economy and making all of us feel the impacts. The responsible solution is a full year omnibus funding bill, and the Senate can pass that right now before the end of the legislative session. Will [Senator] commit to staying in session and getting an omnibus funding bill across the finish line? I will be closely watching for [Senator]’s actions on this and following up.
