Resistbot Petition: POTUS do NOT negotiate with MAGA extremists! Pass a clean debt ceiling!

An open letter to the President

POTUS do NOT negotiate with MAGA extremists! Pass a clean debt ceiling!

252 so far! Help us get to 500 signers!

Before the election, Republican leaders in both the House and Senate declared their intentions to hold the debt ceiling hostage to demand cuts to Social Security and Medicare benefits. This would be a disaster. Failure to increase the debt ceiling would wreck the global economy, producing a recession or even depression, and would weaken America’s standing in the world. President Obama attempted to negotiate with Republicans in order to raise the debt ceiling in 2011. Those negotiations yielded an agreement that prolonged the Great Recession, led to the downgrading of the United States’s credit rating, and nearly resulted in cuts to Social Security and Medicare. America is a democracy―we should not allow government-by-hostage-crisis to become routine. President Biden, you must make it clear: Raising the debt ceiling is the basic minimum that we expect from Congress. There can be no negotiation over a necessity. Stay strong. Don’t try to negotiate, as both former President Obama and you, as Vice-President, have tried in the past with disastrous consequences. Demand a clean debt ceiling increase and hold fast!
