NATIONAL -- Hundreds of thousands of Americans are outraged over the government shutdown. Many are signing moveon.org petitions or rallying, demanding Congress get back to work.

In Springfield, a coalition, including MoveOn members, rallied outside Congressman Aaron Schock's (R) office Tuesday. Illinois AFL-CIO joined the movement.
