POLIC­ING THE THANKS­GIV­ING POL­I­TICS

The Washington Times Daily - - Politics -

“If you thought you were go­ing to get a chance to sit around the ta­ble and for­get about the crazi­ness of this world and en­joy some good qual­ity time with your fam­ily, think again. Or­ga­niz­ing for Ac­tion — for­merly Pres­i­dent Obama’s cam­paign en­gine Obama for Amer­ica — is call­ing on its mem­ber­ship to sell so­cial­ized medicine at the fam­ily din­ner ta­ble. They have cre­ated a se­ries of talk­ing points and per­sua­sive tac­tics to try to con­vince their loved ones to sign up for Oba­macare.”

And so warns the Tea Party Pa­tri­ots, the na­tion’s largest um­brella group for the grass-roots move­ment. They’ve de­vel­oped a “Thanks­giv­ing Toolkit” for those who may en­counter pro­gres­sive ideas right in the mid­dle of feast and fel­low­ship. In­deed, the eight-page strat­egy cov­ers facts about the Af­ford­able Care Act, plus sug­gested con­ver­sa­tions to have with out-of-town guests and older fam­ily mem­bers, among other things.

The or­ga­niz­ers have a warn­ing about the afore­men­tioned pro­gres­sive ac­tivist group, call­ing it “very ef­fec­tive with elec­tions. We can’t dis­count that abil­ity when it comes to push­ing leg­isla­tive is­sues. And in this in­stance, we have a big­ger moun­tain to climb to re­peal this law and save Amer­ica from even more tur­moil.”
