Dear MoveOn member,
For the first time in history, the U.S. credit rating has been downgraded.
This "tea party downgrade" is a shameful blow to our nation's honor and risks throwing us right back into recession. Worst of all? It was completely avoidable.
But when given the choice between extremist posturing and responsible leadership, tea party Republicans chose wrong. And now, amazingly, they're trying to pin the blame on Democrats.1
We have to set the record straight. Can you share this image on Facebook today?

Thanks for all you do.
