MoveOn and Heatlhcare for America put more pressure on Mike Doyle, Jason Altmire, others today at noon.

Toomey and all republican congresspeople are a waste of time. I'm not sure what Senator Casey will do. My guess is that he would back something like the Reid plan, no social security cuts but creates a basis for them in the future with a second catfood commission.

I've received alerts from a number of organizations about a rally at noon. Yes I know this is late but better late than never.

Join thousands of others across the country TODAY, July 26, at noon (local time) at your Congress member’s nearest district office. To find the closest office to you click here.

Dear Friend,

In an astonishing display of reckless partisanship, House Speaker John Boehner walked away from debt-ceiling talks at the last minute. Boehner aims to appease the Tea Party fanatics in Congress and special-interest campaign contributors, who increasingly suppress his better instincts to do the right thing. It's now abundantly clear that the Republicans are willing to drive our economy off a cliff rather than ask millionaires, billionaires and the big corporations to pay their fair share.

We’ve got to put a stop to this madness. Health Care for America Now is joining and other leaders of the American Dream movement to ask people to show up outside Member of Congress’s offices on Tuesday at noon to deliver a crucial message: "Don't destroy the American Dream."

Join thousands of others across the country tomorrow, Tuesday, July 26, at noon (local time) at your Congress member’s nearest district office.

Yes, I’ll be there on Tuesday!

When the Republicans walked away from what appeared to be an imminent bipartisan deal, they threw the economy, the international markets, seniors and middle-class families under the bus. They showed us they're willing to default on Americans' financial obligations and to default on the American Dream, which is made possible by programs like Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, college aid and much more.

This is a moment when progressives need to come together to show our strength and let our boldest leaders know that we're with them. And we need to hold the extremists accountable for their willingness to create an economic crisis because they want to cut Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security to pay for tax cuts for the super-rich.

Tomorrow, stand up against the extremists in Congress who have engaged in political brinkmanship on steroids to protect tax loopholes for the wealthiest Americans and big corporations.

In Solidarity,
Melinda Gibson
