Petition Closed

Catholics across the country are petitioning the United States House of Representative to break away from the fringe faction of the Tea Party and pass a clean budget to fund the government. This will allow millions of Americans to go back to work and ensure access to critical programs for the poorest of Americans.

Letter to
Catholics in the United States House of Representatives
Members of Congress,

As someone who believes in the fullness of the Catholic faith's social tradition, I urge you to break away from the fringe faction of the Tea Party and pass a clean budget to fund the government.

This will allow millions of Americans to go back to work and ensure access to critical programs for the poorest among us.

Pope Francis reminds us that politics can be the highest form of service. In that spirit, I urge you to uphold the best of the Catholic faith tradition and ensure that our government can continue to serve the most vulnerable people in our country.
