Nearly 100 “Fight MAGA Default Crisis Rallies” to take place this weekend, including in Massachusetts
BOSTON – A number of rallies are taking place across the country this weekend, including in Massachusetts, criticizing MAGA Republicans for their handling of the debt ceiling.
Indivisible Mass Coalition will be holding a press conference Saturday afternoon in Boston at the Common followed by a “Fight MAGA Default Crisis Rally.”
Organizers say it’s one of nearly 100 rallies being held across the country as the June 1 deadline looms for a possible U.S. debt default.
Democratic Whip Katherine Clark plans to speak at the press conference.
“Local activists are urging Congress to say no – loudly and clearly – to extremist MAGA GOP demands for cuts to social programs in return for raising the debt ceiling,” says Indivisible Massachusetts Coalition Chairperson Deb Paul. “In Massachusetts, we will be thanking our Congressional Delegation for sticking with Pres. Biden and helping to pass a clean debt ceiling bill.”
Negotiations Friday between the White House and House Republicans remained far apart. Republicans want to make spending cuts and policy changes as part of a debt ceiling deal while Democrats oppose the cuts. If a deal is not reached, it could be catastrophic to the economy. The stock market had been increasing this week on hopes that a deal would be reached, however, pessimism of a deal being reached by June 1st prompted a decrease in the market on Friday.
Other host organizations for the rallies include Indivisible Acton Area, Committee to Protect Our Democracy – Indivisible, American Federation of Teachers Massachusetts, JALSA Impact, The New Democracy Coalition.

78 straight debt ceiling increases. Makes me wonder if there really is a ceiling. It’s one thing to throw around this symbolic psychobabble about a mystical ceiling, but reality is we’re stuck in an infinite Ponzi Scheme. All the Rhetoric in the world won’t change reality!

It’s funny how our deficit went up like a rocket right after the huge tax cuts for the rich and corporations, You know the ones that expire for the middle class next year! Funny how the party that’s bought and paid for by the rich and corporations makes sure their tax cuts last forever but expires next year for working class suckers.
So Republicans cut the taxes but didn’t cut any spending! Now the bills coming due for those tax cuts and they expect the Democrats to cut spending and before Biden called them out at the state of the Union they wanted to cut Social Security and Medicare for seniors!
Oh and look at the statistics, those tax cuts did not stimulate our already booming Obama economy. Trump inherited a strong economy and it crashed under his watch. Oh and there’s also that thing of freedom just for conservative “values”? which are the minority. No freedom for woman to choose what they want to do with their bodies because they want to force their religion down all our throats even though our Constitution demands separation. How about people who want to live their life the way they want without discrimination, how about that freedom? How about our freedom from gun violence? How about our freedom from re-interpretation of the Constitution from authoritarian fascist on the court?
MAGAism is Fascism. Yes fascist want a strong man authoritarian like Trump, want one source of news like Fox and there can’t be no descent because it’s dealt with. Sort of like Putin is now! But you all just keep on supporting extremism and see where this country ends up. To me fascism and extremism is anti-American because we fought fascism during world war II but yet you guys love it because your xenophobic, you believe that Hispanic people are going to take over this country maybe put white people in slavery or something? It’s all about fear, fear those brown people, fear the black people, fear crime but yet MAGAt’s support gun violence by not allowing gun laws to be strengthened because they’re so afraid that all gun rights are going to be taken away which is a total joke except by chicken shit people. Fascist don’t care how corrupt their leader is or don’t believe it. They believe everything is a giant conspiracy! Yeah we’re all in on it and we’re all against right wing fascism! When you support insurrection you’re fascist!
Now comes the flood of ignorant replies from low IQ people that are suckers for fascism and full of hate.

It’s already great and fascism isn’t going to make it greater. This country has the highest worker participation ever and we’re out of workers. What we need to make it even greater is more workers which are already here in this country as refugees with no worker status so why don’t we give them work status and why don’t we do immigration reform? Because what you consider great again is xenophobia. Because of xenophobic fear we’re not filling jobs thet need filling holding back this great country! You don’t have a clue how to make this country greater.
And what is the greatest inflationary pressure in this country? Companies competing for workers driving up wages.

Turning on the printing presses and growing and monetizing the debt causes inflation, you foolish fascist. The more dollars competing for each good drives up prices. Antifa Ken is a top purveyor of lies, he talked up Russian Collusion daily after watching CNN and MSDNC.
