Tell them to Raise the Debt Ceiling!
If we don’t raise the debt ceiling by Aug. 2nd, for the first time in our history, the United States will default on its debts and will be unable to pay our bills.
The effects would be catastrophic:
• Interest rates would rise on mortgages, car loans, student loans, credit cards and small business loans, adding thousands to already skyrocketing debts for working families.
• We wouldn’t be able to pay our soldiers fighting overseas.
• It would force us to stop sending Social Security and Medicare checks, putting millions of America’s seniors at risk.
• The stock market will plummet – this could mean losing thousands from retirement savings.
