Oklahomans Contact Congressional Delegation Over Debt Debate Worries

Posted: Updated:

News9.com

OKLAHOMA CITY – Thousands of Oklahomans concerned about the debt ceiling debate and its impact on social security, military pay and the economy are phoning, faxing and e-mailing the state's Congressional delegation.

If the House, Senate and President Barack Obama fail to agree on a plan to raise the debt ceiling by Tuesday, August 2, the nation will default for the first time. Some financial analysts say not reaching a deal could lead to economic catastrophe. Interest rates could rise and the dollar could decline. The nation's triple-A credit rating could also be downgraded, which could lead to a steep stock market plunge.

President Obama has also indicated Social Security checks might not be mailed on time, but Republicans have called that a "scare tactic." One thing is certain: Without an increase in the debt limit, the federal government will not be able to pay all its bills next month.

Phone lines for members of Congress have been clogged with calls from worried constituents. You can contact members of Oklahoma's Congressional delegation at any of the following numbers or websites:
