SHARON, Pa. - Tuesday marked day 15 of the partial government shut down, and protesters took their message to Republican Congressmen and Senators.

They placed cease and desist orders they had made on lawmakers doors at 17 locations in Pennsylvania.
 
More than a dozen men and women representing Keystone Progress, AFSCME, SEIU, the Alliance for Retired Americans, and other organizations chanted cease and desist.

The men and women are angry over the impasse over the partial government shutdown, and the debt ceiling, saying lawmakers should address the issues separately.

Luanne Salage a Sharpsville resident says she is angry at Congressman Mike Kelly, at Congress, and the Tea Party.
 
The Republican controlled Congress has passed several bills that would have kept the government open and to increase our nation's borrowing or debt limit, but they have been rejected by the Democratic controlled Senate.

None-the-less the men and women want the Senate Democrats to hold their ground saying Congress should deal with the Affordable Care Act known as Obama Care as a separate issue.
 
Chuck Baldoff wants a clean budget deal and debt deal.

He says Republican lawmakers have taken the American people hostage, adding you don't negotiate with hostage takers.

He also spoke out against Kelly saying the Congressman voted against the SNAP program that provides extra food stamp benefits for the elderly and even many members of our military.

He complains Kelly voted in a farm bill to give tax dollars to big millionaire farmers in a form of corporate welfare.
 
Missa Murry Eaton, a member of Keystone Progress, says the protesters want the Republicans to cease and desist, to stop the government shut down, and to raise the debt ceiling.

Eaton, who had run for office against Kelly, tells us they want to make sure our country pays the bills it has incurred, and to make sure working and poor people are not penalized.
 
Congressman Mike Kelly's Press Secretary issued a statement saying, "Representative Kelly welcomes feedback from his constituents and appreciates their right to peaceably assemble. He shares their desire to see this budget stalemate ended and like most Americans wants to reach a serious solution that lifts the unfair debt burden from our children and grandchildren's future."
