Stop the Bullies in Congress

The bullies in Congress once again are demanding benefit cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and threatening to tank our economy by causing a default of the U.S. government on March 1 unless they get their way. They pulled this same stunt last summer and made Congress a laughingstock in the eyes of the world.

We need to stand up to their bullying and spread the word that ending tax loopholes for Wall Street, corporations that send jobs overseas and the richest 2% of Americans is what we should be talking about in Washington—not dangerous budget cuts that threaten the 98% and cut Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid benefits.
