MoveOn.org indicates Obama will roll over to Tea Bagger demands

 
  Is Obama ready to roll over?
If you've been tuning out the fight in Washington over the "debt ceiling," it's time to tune in. Right now. 

The New York Times reports that President Obama and Speaker John Boehner are close to reaching a secret agreement that includes deep cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security, but have no immediate plan to make millionaires and corporations pay their fair share.
This is an absolutely critical moment for MoveOn members to make an impact.
Democratic Leaders in Congress—including Minority Leader Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid—have consistently said that a lopsided deal like this is a non-starter. 
But if a backroom deal is reached, they'll be under extraordinary pressure to go along. They need to hear loud and clear from their donors, volunteers, and voters that such a deal would be completely unacceptable.
Things are moving very quickly right now, so we're joining other key progressive groups for today's Emergency Call-In Day to Demand They Stand Strong. 
Democrats in Congress need to hear that if they stand firm against any debt ceiling deal that goes after the elderly and poor, we'll have their backs.
Will you call your US senator and ask this person to make clear that he/she will not vote for a deal that cuts Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid benefits or a deal that doesn't make corporations and the rich pay their fair share?

Obama has already lost my support. It makes activism nearly meaningless because I no longer have any individual to support. I'll continue to send encouragement for progressive causes but I'll be voting a protest vote this coming election or simply staying home. I won't be voting for any republican or for Obama because I'm too far to the left for either option.

I won't campaign for him either if he rolls over again. I stopped contributing to the Democratic Party when the Bush tax cuts were extended.
