Dear Sir or Madam,
I am sending you this petition today because the country has been harmed by the Federal government shutdown. The reason for the Shutdown is that some members of Congress disagreed with a law that the president championed called the Affordable Care Act and decided to shutdown the government. Who has suffered by this shutdown? 850,000 Federal government employees are out of work or are not being paid, children who’s files were supposed to be reviewed to enter lifesaving clinical trials at the NIH were told to wait. Our great National Parks and memorials are closed. Please sign this petition to say open the government now or at the very least sign on to throw your support for a more civil government of the people. Thank you for your time.
