OFA's Astroturf Health Care Phone Banks

Oh, looky what Barack Obama - uh, I mean Organizing For America (OFA) - sent me. The same bastards - uh, I mean Democrats - who accuse opponents of government controlled, socialist healthcare of astroturfing continue to lay astroturf across the nation. Here's an email that I received on Monday, which talks about a "Health Care Phone Bank" in Chicago suburb Evanston. Of course, emails will be tailored to tout local phone banks depending on recipients' zip codes. Here's the letter from Barack OFAma. I mean Obama. Uh, I mean OFA. Same thing, really. Why bother with the phone banks, though? Now that thousands of ACORN thugs will not be doing Census work, perhaps Obama/OFA could pay each of them a living wage to pick up the phone and harangue people. From: "Dave Seman," Monday, September 14, 2009 Tom -- With Congress back in session, we're now entering the final sprint towards reform, and we need to do everything we can to help pass the President's Plan for Health Reform. So this week and next, Organizing for America volunteers are holding phone banks in Evanston to build local support and get out the facts about health insurance reform. Will you sign up to join a Health Care Phone Bank? We'll be holding phone banks in Evanston asking folks to support President Obama's Plan for Health Reform, and to make their voices heard in this debate. No prior experience is necessary. Organizing for America volunteers will be on hand to provide all the materials and guidance you'll need to be successful. As President Obama wrote recently, "We didn't win last year's election together at a committee hearing in D.C. We won it on the doorsteps and the phone lines, at the softball games and the town meetings, and in every part of this great country where people gather to talk about what matters most." And that's exactly how we'll win this fight for real health reform. RSVP here Hope to see you there, Dave Dave Seman Illinois State Director Organizing for America Here's something Dave left out of his email. "We're not looking for a fight. That will come later, when we have an army." Cool Hats & Shirts for Cool Conservatives Leave a Comment... Chicago News Bench RSS Feed We're on Twitter...
