Offensive Attack on Free Speech

I haven't blogged in a while, because Twitter is easier and faster.
but this is much too long for a Tweet:

An email I received:

Subject: Join us - special briefing from Rep. Doggett, actress Edie Falco, and more

Dear [redacted]:

By now, I'm sure you've heard about the lobbyist-funded right-wing extremists making trouble at town halls all across America.

These disruptions are funded by special interests like the insurance companies, who want to kill health care reform as quickly as possible.1 They're trying to make sure nobody can have a productive, rational conversation about what health care reform will do for you and me. We can't let them stifle debate or we will not win health care reform this year.

So, we've organized a special briefing with Texas Representative Lloyd Doggett, actress Edie Falco, Richard Kirsch, Health Care for America Now's National Campaign Director, and Dan Heck, a regional director for Working America and Health Care for America Now to get the facts out about health care reform, find out what's at stake, and learn what you and I can do to help pass reform.

Can you join us for a special briefing on Tuesday, August 11th at 9 pm EST (6 pm PST) to learn about health care reform and how to right back against the lobbyist-funded right-wing? Click here to RSVP.

We've lined up some speakers on the call who really know what they're talking about.

Texas Representative Lloyd Doggett talk about his experiences with these disruption tactics and what you can expect. Actress and advocate Edie Falco will tell you what's at stake.
Richard Kirsch, our National Campaign Director, will talk about our historic progress on passing health reform and what we need to do to get it over the finish line. And Dan Heck, a regional director for Working America and Health Care for America Now who's out there every day talking to real people about this issue will give you tips on how to combat some of the biggest myths out there on health reform and how to get involved in your community.

Can you join us for this special briefing with Representative Doggett, Edie Falco, Richard Kirsch, Dan Heck, and thousands of activists and organizers like you and me? Click here to RSVP for the call on Tuesday, August 11th at 9 pm EST (6pm PST).

We'll also take questions for the speakers. You can submit a question you'd like to ask when you sign up to RSVP for the training call.

It's crucial that we're out there busting myths and promoting health reform every day in August while Congress is back at home, listening to their voters.

Please join us!

To your health,

Levana Layendecker
Health Care for America Now
