Seattle – Close to two million customers and employees have signed Starbucks Coffee Company’s “Come Together” petition that seeks to break the current deadlock in Washington. The petition urges the nation’s elected leaders to reopen the federal government, pay debts on time and pass a bi-partisan and comprehensive long-term budget deal by the end of the year has close to two million signatures.

Starbucks plans to present collected positions to Congress and President Obama on Wednesday. The retailer says more petitions are expected to arrive over the next few days from other organizations and the remainder of Starbucks company-operated stores.
