Following the House GOP’s closed door strategy meeting this morning, the DNC received a voice mail message revealing a list of demands. The message was clear that should those demands not be met, they will not pay our bills, defaulting on our obligations, and sending the U.S. into yet another financial crisis.

With their party
on the verge of losing the popular presidential vote for the fifth time in six elections, Republicans across the political spectrum anticipate a prolonged and probably divisive period of self-examination.

Victims. Dependent. That’s what Mitt Romney called forty-seven percent of Americans. Including people on Medicare. But what about his plan for you?

You’re no victim…you earned your benefits. Don’t let Mitt Romney take them away.
