Things are about to get ugly in America my friends. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what will happen when the leftists try to storm town halls packed with tea partiers.
(The Hill) — Democratic strategists believe their Tea Party moment has arrived.
Working with labor unions and liberal groups, they are using the Presidents Day congressional recess to organize a public backlash against billions of dollars in cuts to federal programs.
One labor organizer said that members have been urged to attend congressional town hall meetings to ask Republican lawmakers “pointed questions” about the cuts they supported last week.
“We are targeting various House Republicans in town hall meetings during the recess to let them know these budget cuts are beyond the pale,” said the labor source, who added that it has been difficult to mobilize supporters to public question-and-answer sessions with lawmakers because “they’ve been pretty circumspect in giving out information about the meetings.”
Justin Ruben, the executive director of MoveOn.org, a progressive advocacy group, has also encouraged members to grill lawmakers at town hall meetings.
“Whenever we hear about a town hall meeting we encourage them to go and ask pointed questions about what is happening,” he said.
Conservative strategists used town hall meetings in August of 2009 to raise loud public protests against the healthcare bill Democrats were pushing through Congress.
