Mitch McConnell is refusing to bring the legislation to reopen the government to the Senate floor for a vote, so we're raising $25,000 – $1k for every day of the shutdown – to get him out of office.

For those keeping score: 800,000 Americans are still without pay.
  • Many are missing credit card and mortgage payments, filing for unemployment, or dipping into their kids’ college savings.
  • Airport lines are growing as TSA workers call out of work.
  • Food inspections have halted for foods like produce, cereals, and cheese.
  • Prison guards are working overtime at one of the most dangerous federal jobs in America.
  • Without staff, national parks like Joshua Tree have been devastated by trash and vandalism.
  • More than 42,000 members of the Coast Guard are working without pay, providing critical national security and lifesaving duties.
  • And Secret Service agents, including those who protect Trump, are working without pay.

All because Trump wants his border wall funding.

As Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell has the power to put an end to it all – but he's nowhere to be found. According to The Intercept, “all McConnell would have to do to open the government would be to put the same bill that the Senate already passed back on the floor.”

But he’s up for reelection in 2020 and needs Trump’s support to make it through the primary.

McConnell’s not just sitting on the sidelines either… by refusing votes on bills funding the government that have passed the House, he’s actively shielding Trump from having to veto them. He’s choosing Trump and the border wall over the 800,000 federal workers and Americans across the country who are suffering amid the government shutdown.

Help send Mitch a message: Stop standing in the way of reopening the government and bring a bill to the floor to allow furloughed federal employees to go back to work and receive the pay they deserve. Americans deserve to have a say in this matter, as do our elected senators.
