Just four weeks ago, the American economy was the greatest economy on record. But now that state and local governments are forcing the shutdown of the American economy, the American people are facing dire economic peril.

47 million jobs will no longer exist if we don't get back to work. Those jobs will be lost permanently because the businesses where those jobs used to be located will be gone. Getting them back won't happen over night.

Tens of millions of Americans will lose their retirement and education savings permanently. There simply won't be time to make back the losses.

America cannot afford to add many trillions of dollars to the national debt. The national debt alone is an enormous strain on our nation. Shouldering the costs of an unnecessarily prolonged shutdown is a burden that will haunt future generations.

As America's economy withers, the other economies of the world will take an enormous hit, reversing the global wealth and standard of living in countries ill-suited to bear the incredible loss of life and resources that come with a return to extreme poverty.

America can get back to work and it can do so safely. It is time to save our economy while there is still one to save.

Get America back to work by Easter, Mr. President. We will not survive much longer.
