Even after the president offered Republicans a debt-ceiling deal most MoveOn members probably consider unconscionable—with trillions in cuts, even to Medicare and Social Security—Speaker Boehner still walked away from the table.
Republicans hope the threat of default will be enough to force Democrats to sacrifice and compromise even more.
Over the next few days, Democrats like Rep. McCarthy will face growing pressure to let irresponsible threats win out and to cave into Republican demands to slash Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.
That's why, with other leaders of the American Dream movement, we're putting out an urgent call for every patriotic American to show up outside Democratic congressional offices nationwide on Tuesday at noon to deliver a crucial message: "We're counting on you to protect Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. "

Then you just have to show up on Tuesday here:
300 Garden City Plaza, Garden City, NY 11530We need to show as much public support as possible, so please pass this along to anyone else you know who could join in on Tuesday. This is a moment when we need to bring the the progressive movement together to show our strength and show our boldest leaders that we're with them.
Our best shot to stop a terrible deal is to get as many House Democrats as possible to join Leader Nancy Pelosi, who's been strongly saying that benefit cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid are unacceptable.2 Leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus are circulating a "Dear Colleague" letter, backing Leader Pelosi, that already has 80 co-signers. We need to convince Rep. McCarthy to get on board and sign the letter right away.
Let's get out there on Tuesday and let leaders like Rep. McCarthy know how important it is to stand up to Republican threats to crash the American economy in order to protect tax giveaways for the rich.
