Members of Congress are at home in their districts right now. And if you agree with me – whether you're a Democrat or a Republican or not much of a fan of either – let them know.
If you've had it with gridlock, and you want them to pass stalled bills that will help our economy right now – let them know.
If you refuse to settle for a politics where scoring points is more important than solving problems; if you believe it's time to put country before party and the interests of our children before our own – let them know.
And maybe they'll get back to Washington ready to compromise, ready to create jobs, ready to get our fiscal house in order – ready to do what you sent them here to do.
Yes, we've still got a long way to go to get to where we need to be. We didn't get into this mess overnight, and it's going to take time to get out of it. That's a hard truth – but it's no excuse for inaction. After all, America voted for divided government, not dysfunctional government, and we've got work to do. And when we come together and find common ground, there's no stopping this country. There's no stopping our people. There's no holding us back. And there is every reason to believe we'll get through this storm to a brighter day.
Thanks for listening, and have a great weekend.
