Activist groups including and CREDO Action organized rallies in states represented by Republican senators. On Twitter, the actions were updated under the hashtag #DoYourJob.

Amy Brundage, an organizer with the nonprofit Constitutional Responsibility Project, told the Washington Post, “These events will make it crystal clear that senators will be held accountable by their constituents if they continue to shirk their constitutional responsibility and ignore the will of the overwhelming majority of the American people.”

Murshed Zaheed, head of CREDO Action, said in a statement Monday, “Senate Republicans don’t get to subvert the constitution and refuse to do their jobs just because they don’t like President Obama.”
