Speaker John Boehner and Republican leaders are threatening the collapse of the entire US economy unless they get their radical way: severe cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid — and no closing of tax loopholes and subsidies for millionaires and big corporations.
They are engaging in political brinkmanship that threatens to force the nation into default, kill jobs and drive up interest rates on our mortgages, credit cards and student loans.
Send a message to Congress now. Tell your representative and your senators to oppose the Boehner plan. We cannot let John Boehner and Republican leaders hold our economy hostage so they can protect the wealthiest CEOs while forcing working families to bear the entire burden.
