-------- EMERGENCY RESPONSE TO THREAT OF CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS
         TO SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT
         ON OCTOBER 1: -------------------------------------------------------

/Unless a Federal Budget is passed by October 1:
/Tens of thousands will be thrown out of work;
Payments to active duty soldiers will cease;
No FHA mortgages would be approved;
Federal loans to small businesses would be suspended;
Federal research projects would be halted;
and other vital services will be threatened. /(Boston Globe, page 1,  
9/20/13)/

But unless President Obama agrees to cancel the new universal health  
Insurance program Republican legislators have said they will do just that.  
Already the Sequester cuts have jeopardized the well-being of tens of  
thousands. But a government shut-down will have far more widespread impacts  
across the country and threaten the U.S. economy itself. Please Join us at  
this emergency action on:

-------- MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 30 AT NOON
         REPUBLICAN PARTY HEADQUARTERS
         85 MERRIMAC STREET, BOSTON (NORTH STATION T) ------------------------

Gather at the offices of the Republican State Committee for a vigil and press  
event. We will deliver a letter at this Republican Party headquarters urging  
that the Massachusetts Party urge Congressional Republicans to avert a  
shutdown.

Speakers will include federal employees who will be furloughed and others  
directly affected by the threatened shutdown.

We demand that the whole Congress stop stifling the voice of the American  
People who in measures of public opinion across the country – and in the  
referendum on the ballot in Massachusetts last November – have consistently  
called for a Federal Budget that:

*Protects Social Security, Medicare, Veterans Benefits and other vital  
programs:
*Invests in employment as the solution to our economic crisis;
*And pays for these efforts and reduces the national debt by ending massive  
corporate tax loopholes, ending the war in Afghanistan, and redirecting money  
from the Pentagon budget to these projects that support our families.

Congress must translate these demands into a budget, repeal the sequester  
which violates these demands, and keep public programs functioning.

*This vigil will only take place if there is no agreement by Monday to avert  
a shutdown.*

Sponsors include The Budget for All Campaign and MoveOn For more information
