Received this e-mail today from Senate Tom Udall (D. NM) regarding the debt ceiling:
Failing to fulfill our country’s financial obligations would be a very serious mistake.

Yet this is exactly what obstructionists and far-right ideologues are proposing to do by refusing to allow Congress to avoid default.

Refusing to pay our bills would devastate our fragile economic recovery. It could be a catastrophe for New Mexico families, senior citizens, and veterans who rely on programs like Social Security and other important social safety nets to make ends meet.

We cannot let obstructionists dictate our nation’s fiscal policy. Add your voice to mine and demand a real solution. Sign the petition today:


The current debt ceiling stand-off in Washington is a self-imposed crisis. A way for far-right obstructionists to try and score political points rather than look at responsible solutions for reducing our deficit -- like ending tax breaks for the wealthiest 1% and corporations that ship jobs overseas.

Sign the petition to tell Washington that it’s time to come together and fix this problem. It’s time to end the debt ceiling stand-off now:


The gridlock in Congress has to end. We cannot continue to put the full faith and credit of our country at risk.


Tom Udall
