Sen. Cruz’s online petition tells Dems ‘fund our vets’

Fund Our Vets

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has launched a new online petition in response to President Obama’s threat to veto any partial funding bills brought for his signature.

The effort  is being launched via the Fund Our Veterans website, which says Republicans and Democrats in both houses of
Congress can fund the Veterans Administration, regardless of what happens with the shutdown, adding:

The House of Representatives has passed legislation to fully fund the Department of Veterans Affairs, but Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid is blocking it from a vote in the Senate and President Obama has threatened to veto it. All because they are playing politics with VA funding.

We call them “The Greatest Generation” because they earned it. We will never know what all they saw as they stormed beaches with gun firing reigning down on them. Young men and women who had to leave their schools, jobs and loved ones back home so that our world would be a better place.

Our veterans have sacrificed enough. They shouldn’t have to suffer through a government shutdown, too.

The website provides a list of Democratic senators, along with their phone numbers and a link to send a message via Twitter, saying:

“Please call your Senators right now: Tell them that the House of Representatives has passed legislation to fully fund the Department of Veterans Affairs and it needs their support.”

The effort is linked to the Jobs Growth & Freedom Fund PAC website, which lists as its priority winning a Republican majority in the Senate in 2014.
