Dear Friend,

Republicans have a longstanding commitment to destroy Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid.

And now House Republicans are threatening to cause a government default on our debt in order to get President Obama and the Democrats to do their dirty work for them.

Unfortunately, they seem to be succeeding. We already know President Obama has put massive cuts to all three of these programs on the table.

And yesterday multiple news sources reported President Obama might have already dropped any demand that the brutal spending cuts (which reportedly amount to $3 trillion over ten years) be balanced by even modest revenue increases on the wealthiest and greediest among us.

In other words, President Obama might be about to cave to the extremist demands of the House Republicans who've taken our entire country hostage.

Democrats in the House and the Senate can and must stop a bad deal from happening. But they need to hear that their constituents want them to do so. Now more than ever, it's important that you pick up the phone. Today.

Call Sen. Harkin. Click here for the contact info and a sample script.

There is simply no justification for shredding the social safety net that provides some measure of security to the very people who've taken it on the chin during this economic crisis, while asking nothing from the ultra rich or wealthy corporations.

Yet this is exactly what the House Republicans are demanding in debt ceiling negotiations. And if we don't speak out today, this may be what President Obama is willing to give them.

Democrats in the House and the Senate have leverage in the debt ceiling fight. They need to stand strong and block a bad debt ceiling deal.

Thank you for speaking out. Your activism matters.
