The House Democrats campaign wing is trolling for Medicare protesters at town halls this week in 20 Republican-held congressional districts, The Caucus Blog of The New York Times reports. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DSCC), which has launched a website called Dont End Medicare, will provide picket signs and budget talking points to anyone who wants to attend.
DSCC robo-calls denouncing Medicare reform are going out to seniors in Florida, Arizona, and other states in an attempt to ratchet up the noise level at constituent meetings with pro-reform lawmakers.
Republicans say House Democrats are showing more interest in GOP meetings than in their own.

Obama = Willie Stark
Two can play this game. Game on!
The only example of Dems creating jobs.
And we can’t do the same?? Huh? Where’s the fire in the belly of the Tea Party? Let’s spit in their eye and make their lives miserable too!
I don’t see the problem. We knew and we know they’re going to disrupt us, so why can’t we do the same?
Astroturf, Comrade Pelosi?
That’s what I’ve been saying. The election wasn’t the end of the fight, it was the beginning.
“Your Stimulus dollars at work.”
Aha. So THIS is the road work we’ve heard of.
“Paid for by the A.R.R.A.”
Except the dems aren’t holding townhalls. From what I’ve heard, they’ve been directed not to have any.
Good - when they show up and disrupt, we’ll kick their butts soundly. I’m ready for a little action anyway.
I have been to a few of my Congressman’s town hall meeting and I have never seen the press present. If the press somehow decides to show up then I will know there is a “setup” going on.
Respectfully, I don't agree.
If the Dems need to resort to community organizing and strong arm disruptive stuff, we can show that this is their world.
Tea Partiers give an excellent counter-example, a grass roots, spontaneous, visceral-but-cordial movement that has depth, honesty, purpose and momentum.
If we were to obstruct their little lie-filled pep rallies, we would be no better than they.
Like your tagline, BTW.
and make sure you confront them....
Astroturf again — all weeds. Thanks Nachum.
I heard there was a web site that list which Repubs are being targeted, when they are holding events and list some suggested left wing mantras that could be used. Does anyone have a link to this site? Forewarned really can be fore armed, if we get there first and make more noise.
I am not recommending, or even suggesting it, but can we speculate in depth the probable results of the GOP recruiting disrupters ("protestors") for 'RAT Town Hall meeting?
Violence, as in muggings that 'Rat thugs have been known to practice.
Slick quick action by the local (union) cops escorting the "pretestors" out, unlike what we normally see happen at GOP events.
A riot, which would then be blamed on "Tea Party" immaturity and irresponsibility.
It should be real interesting if they cause problems at Col. Allen West’s townhalls. No one intimidates him. Grey Eagle
Except the dems arent holding townhalls. From what Ive heard, theyve been directed not to have any.
They want to avoid anything exposing them for what they are.
You’ve got it right.
