Tuesday, noon - drp by Betty McCollum's office !! STAND STRONG, Betty!

Dear MoveOn member,
This weekend, it became 100% clear thatRepublicans would rather see America default, Social Security checks stop going out, the stock market plummet, and unemployment soar than give one inch on their position: that the very richest people and most profitable corporations shouldn't pay one penny more in taxes. 
Even after the president offered Republicans a debt-ceiling deal most MoveOn members probably consider unconscionable—with trillions in cuts, even to Medicare and Social Security—speaker Boehner stillwalked away from the table.
Republicans hope the threat of default will be enough to force Democrats to sacrifice and compromise even more. 
But Democrats like Betty McCollum are standing strong. Rep. McCollum is one of 80 Democrats who have joined Leader Pelosi in saying that cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security benefits are off the table. Over the next few days, Rep. McCollum will face extreme pressure to cave into every Republican demand and let irresponsible threats drive terrible decisions in Washington.
That's why, with other leaders of the American Dream movement, we're putting out an urgent call for every patriotic American to show up outside progressive congressional offices on Tuesday at noon to deliver a crucial message of support: "Thank you for protecting Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Keep standing strong." 
Can you deliver the message to Rep. McCollum at her office on Tuesday at noon?
We'll follow up with all the details and a link to print your own "Keep standing strong" signs to bring to Rep. McCollum.
Then you just have to show up on Tuesday here:   
165 Western Avenue North, St. Paul, MN 55102
We need to show as much public support as possible, so please pass this along to anyone else you know who could join in on Tuesday. This is a moment when we need to bring the progressive movement together to show our strength and show our boldest leaders that we're with them.
Let's get out there on Tuesday and let leaders like Rep. McCollum know how important it is to keep standing up to Republican threats. We can't let Republicans crash the American economy to protect tax giveaways for the rich.
Click here if you can drop by Rep. McCollum's office on Tuesday at noon:
Thanks for all you do.
–Daniel, Elena, Tate, Robin, and the rest of the team
