This was in an email from Democrats.com

MAGA Republicans in the U.S. House are planning a US government shutdown to force President Biden to destroy essential programs like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans benefits, public schools, college loans, and climate jobs.

President Biden will not give in to these MAGA terrorist demands, so the United States will default on its bonds, triggering an economic meltdown.

Stock markets will collapse, wiping out pension funds, 501ks, and IRAs.

Interest rates will soar, canceling investments in construction and manufacturing.

The U.S. government will be unable to pay the military, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.

State and local governments will be unable to pay police, teachers, firefighters, hospitals, etc.

Before long, the U.S. will be in a Depression.

But we can stop a MAGA Shutdown if only 5 out of 223 House Republicans vote with Democrats to lift the debt ceiling. 19 of them represent Democratic districts won by Joe Biden, so they are vulnerable to organized pressure from their own constituents. We will organize voters in every Republican district to change their minds - or defeat as many as we can in 2024.


Is this a real possibility or just fundraising?

6. It is a real possibility. It is not in the interest of most Republicans to kick start a depression.

Gotta give them credit for the level of fear-mongering. Really ratcheting it up from the last "shutdown".

Yet Joe Biden and the democrats have cut all of those "programs." Biden was instrumental as a senator on limiting social security and increasing the SS taxes as he was on veterans benefits.
When you are the beneficiary of someone’s kindness and generosity, it produces a sense of gratitude and community.

When you are the beneficiary of a policy that steals from someone and gives it to you in return for your vote, it produces a sense of entitlement and dependency.

Think I got this same e-mail from Richard "Dick-head" Gephardt in the late 1990's about making Granny eat cat food to survive and pushing her off a cliff.

Same shit, 3 decades later. It sells to stupid people, aka leftists. :mental:

It is a real possibility. The e-mail just misidentifies the source. They're getting ahead of the game by blaming any future economic woes on republicans.
