On Monday, Dec. 10, we're going to make it impossible for Congress to ignore us #default

You've heard about the "fiscal cliff," right?

Here's the deal: Our elected officials are making decisions that could impact our daily lives for years to come. Some of them are talking about doing the unspeakable: cutting services we depend on, like Medicare, Medicaid and education programs, while letting millionaires and billionaires avoid paying their fair share of taxes. Meanwhile, House Republicans are holding a tax cut for 98 percent of Americans hostage, showing us their loyalties lie with the the richest 2 percent -- not their constituents.

Watch SEIU, AFSCME and NEA's new ad about the proposed cuts to Medicare:

These are not decisions that should be made by politicians behind closed doors and without the input of real people like you and me.

On Monday, Dec. 10, we're going to make it impossible for Congress to ignore us. We're going to meet our representatives at their local offices and remind them this debate is not just about numbers, but about working families, seniors and children.

We can't allow our government to throw working and middle-class people under the bus.

Please make sure you can be there Monday so we can make our concerns heard loud and clear.
