—Urgent Notice—Urgent Notice—Urgent Notice—Urgent Notice—Urgent Notice—

If you receive Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid, Your benefits may be suspended on August 3. In order to keep making all government payments, including your benefits, Congress needs to raise the official “debt ceiling” by August 2.  But Republicans may force the government into default unless the President agrees to more tax breaks for corporations and the rich—and big cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and other vital programs.

If Congress doesn’t act, President Obama says about Social Security: “I cannot

guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd…Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it.”— CBS News

To ensure your benefits are unaffected, call your Member of Congress at 202-224-3121. We need to make sure they all know

we don’t want our benefits threatened just to protect tax breaks for millionaires and big corporations.

What: Republicans seem willing to send the government into default on August 3 if their demands aren’t met.
