When the Tea Party tells House Republicans to jump — the only question House Republicans ask is “How high?”
First, Speaker Boehner, Majority Leader Cantor, and the rest of the House GOP allowed the Tea Party to bring us to the brink of a catastrophic default. Now those very same extremists are trying to pin the blame on President Obama for our nation’s first ever credit downgrade.
We can’t let them get away it.
We just launched our “Accountability August” campaign to hold Republicans accountable for their extreme agenda while they are home in their districts. We’re putting Republicans on the defensive across the country but we must raise an additional $100,000 to fully fund our Rapid Response operation for next week.
It’s critical we stand strong and united against Republicans’ all-out assault on Democrats and President Obama.
Your dollars will be put to work immediately to hold them accountable. Our August Accountability campaign includes radio ads, billboards, phone banks, door-to-door canvasses, and grassroots organizing in key Republican districts across the country.
Stand with President Obama, and help us fight back and hold Republicans accountable while they’re home in their districts by contributing $3 or more today.
