Quick Reads Before the Schakowsky Townhall

Chicago News Bench was at the townhall at Niles West High School on August 31. We will have photos and video for you on Tuesday, Sept. 1st. A reminder about the event (today, Aug. 31), some quick reads before you go, and a contentious message from Congressfelonspouse Schakowsky to her zombie supporters. Following: 1) The logistics of the event 2) A contentious message from Schakowsky 3) Quick reading list 1) THE LOGISTICS: Jan Schakowsky "Health Care Reform" Town Hall Meeting Monday, August 31 6:30 - 8:00 pm Niles West High School Auditorium 5701 Oakton Street Skokie, IL 60077 (see map below or click this link) Enter school through the main entrance facing Oakton. Arrive early to get a seat. 2) CONTENTIOUS MESSAGE FROM SCHAKOWSKY: The following message is from Schakowksy on Facebook (emphasis added): Congresswoman Schakowsky will be holding a town hall meeting to discuss President Obama's Health Care Reform plan, and we want to hear from you. Jan's top priority in Congress is to help President Obama pass real health care reform, but corporate lobbyists and right-wing extremists will stop at nothing to derail the President's reform agenda, by disrupting town hall meetings and attempting to squelch debate. We need to hear from you on Monday, August 31st about how you would like to see the health care system fixed, and to show your support for health care reform. This event is scheduled to begin at 6:30 PM, but we expect a large turnout, so please plan on arriving between 5:00 and 5:30. Please note, school will be in session at Niles West that day, and the public will not be allowed on campus BEFORE 5:00 PM. 3) THE READING LIST: VIDEO: Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) Admits Obama Healthcare Plan Will Destroy Insurance Industry Special Report: The Town Hall Turnaround Socialism By Any Other Name Still Stinks OFA Astroturfing Big Time for Schakowsky Marathon Pundit: Thomas Paine on the town hall meetings Illinois Review: Schakowsky announced town hall for tonight Zombies Plan Health Care Protest - NBC Chicago Rules for Radicals Training - What the Left Knows and What We Need to Learn Rules for Radicals Training (same as above but as PowerPoint) Canada Considers Privatizing Health Care Cool Hats & Shirts for Cool Conservatives Leave a Comment...
