Dim Meetings Pushed Underground by “Growing Chorus”

Obama just figured this out! Dims should hold meetings by telephone; or maybe under the street, and one-on-one. He is a genius, remember.

“Openess and Transparency,” two of the prominent distinguishing characteristics of the Obama presidency, are still paramount; it will just be PRIVATE openess and transparency. Slick; journalism should eat that right up.

If you have any comments about Obamacare, just remember: these will be reported to the WH; WHERE NOBODY WANTS TO HEAR THEM.

Will Dims escape the “Growing Chorus” which offends them so devastatingly? No; everybody is calling, writing, and faxing in to report problems with Obamacare. Fax Congress Free.

Lawmakers Rethink Town Halls

By JANET ADAMY and NAFTALI BENDAVID
The health-care debate was supposed to play out at rallies and inside gymnasiums when lawmakers headed home for the August recess.

But after a series of contentious town-hall meetings, some Democratic lawmakers are thinking twice about holding large public gatherings. Instead, they are opting for smaller sessions, holding meetings by phone or inviting constituents for one-on-one office hours.

Democrats have accused Republicans of manufacturing the opposition by organizing groups to attend the events and encouraging disruptive behavior. Republican organizers say the unrest reflects genuine anger about the proposed health-care changes.

“Democrats may think that attacking or ignoring this growing chorus of Americans is a smart strategy, but they are obviously forgetting that these concerned citizens are voters as well,” said Paul Lindsay, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, the House GOP’s campaign arm.

Rick Scott, who leads Conservatives for Patients’ Rights, a group that has helped publicize the local meetings, said: “The polls reveal the real picture of what is happening across the country — people are genuinely concerned, some are genuinely angry, and they are expressing themselves.”
