Barbara Boxer says Headlines Read: "GOP base refuses to compromise"

More than 25,000 supporters have already signed my open letter to House Speaker John Boehner, House GOP Leader Eric Cantor, and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, demanding that they back down from their threats to make America a deadbeat nation by forcing us into default.

And the pressure on the GOP is growing. Take a look at some of the latest news headlines over the past 24 hours:

"Debt ceiling stalemate is Tea Party's fault: GOP base refuses to compromise" -- NY Daily News

"House conservatives resist compromise" -- Politico

"Opposition to a deal with Obama creates problems for GOP" -- Los Angeles Times

But it's up to all of us to keep the pressure on and send these extreme right-wing leaders a message.

Sign my urgent open letter to national Republican leaders today: Tell them that Big Oil, big corporations, and millionaires & billionaires should pay their fair share to end this default crisis!

We'll be delivering our open letter at the end of the week, and I want to make sure we have as many signatures on it as possible -- so act quickly!

Thanks for your help,


Barbara Boxer
U.S. Senator

With just 14 days until the August 2 default deadline, the American people need to send Speaker John Boehner, House Republican Leader Eric Cantor, and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell an urgent message:
