Fwd: A dramatic turn

Dear MoveOn member,

Things are shifting fast in the debt ceiling fight. Wanted to make sure you saw the email below—please chip in if you haven't yet:

Yes, I can contribute $5 to help keep up the fight.

Dear MoveOn member,

In the last 24 hours things took a dramatic turn in the fight over whether we'll default on our debt. 

Progressives organized over 800 rallies nationwide that generated a flood of pressure on Republicans. The president's speech led to so many people contacting Congress that the switchboard jammed. And Speaker Boehner is struggling to get enough votes to pass his terrible proposal through the Republican House. 

Suddenly, there's a path to a deal that doesn't simply cut Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid to pay for tax breaks for the rich.

But the next 3 days are crucial, and we need to turn up the heat even further. We're planning an emergency rally on the Capitol steps tomorrow, recording new ads targeting swing Republicans, and keeping the pressure on Democrats so they stand strong. 

But we can't do this without money. Every minute counts—which is why this email is short—and every dollar will help us do more. Can you chip in $5?

Yes, I can contribute to help keep up the fight.

Thanks for all you do.

–Daniel, Justin, Elena, Robin, and the rest of the team
