"On May 31, the House rejected President Obama's request to raise the debt limit with no spending cuts. In addition to every Republican, 46% of Democrats opposed this bill. * This demonstrates the power of polls, which shows even a substantial percentage of Democrats oppose raising the debt ceiling * But it also demonstrate the power of your RELENTLESS PRESSURE on Congress ... More and more Democrats realize the U.S. is on an unsustainable path and that reforms must be implemented NOW instead of putting them off any longer. The vote was good news, but this is only the beginning of the fight." (06/13/11)
