Actions: Tell Your Representatives in Congress To Back a Clean Increase
in the Debt Ceiling/Rally Thursday to Support CWA Workers
Last Friday night, House Republicans walked out of debt ceiling talks
after making it 100% clear that they would rather see America default
and the economy ruined than make millionaires or corporations pay one
penny more in taxes.1
Stock markets are dropping already. At many companies, hiring is on
hold. And in six days - we may have to stop mailing out Social
Security checks, paying veterans benefits, and effectively shutting down
the federal government as America defaults on its debt.2
But there's still ONE chance to avoid calamity:
Congress must vote NOW on a clean increase to the debt ceiling -- no
spending cuts, no tax increases, no gimmicks. Just a clean vote that
keeps the economy running and guarantees millions of working Americans
won't get caught in the partisan crossfire.

Together, we'll push Republicans to stop holding America hostage to
protect tax breaks for millionaires and corporations. And we will show
our full support for the Democrats who've stood up in defense of vital
programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid - as well as making
the wealthiest CEOs and corporations pay their fair share of taxes.
tell every member of Congress, no matter what party they are with: It's
time to support a simple, clean vote to raise the debt ceiling.
