Democrats Posting Craigslist Ads to Recruit and Pay People to Support Healthcare Reform

Caleb Howe over at redstate.com has uncovered some very interesting information as it pertains to the ongoing heated health care debate.  Caleb’s blog post illustrates how it’s actually Obama and the Democrat party who are astroturfing and fabricating support for health care reform.  He received an email/comment “about a craigslist ad soliciting health care activism for money.”  The phrase “Activism for money” immediately threw up a red flag.

One such craigslist ad was posted for New York Manhattan with a title of “**TALENTED LEADERS needed to work for heath care reform $11-16/hour**(Downtown).  Another ad featured a graphic with the following text.

Go into your community and make change happen.  And make friends and money along the way.

So, this evidence begs the following questions.  Which party is fabricating the grass roots movement?  Which party is participating in astroturfing?  The answer to this question is none other than the Democratic party under the thug chicago style leadership of Barack Obama.

  1. I think both sides have taken essentially the same tactics. Labeling each other with invectives, giving their supporters a ‘playbook’, and attempting to use the media to their advantage. All of this is okay. It is okay because in America we have the right to freedom of speech, assembly and freedom of the press. These are rights that thousands have given their lives to protect.

    The debate on health care which consumes nearly a fifth of the national economy and involves everyone is something that we should openly debate and understand the intended and unintended consequences of before we change an entire system.

    It is important to provide better access, bend the cost curve so that health care is affordable (and not just through shifting costs by taxing), and improving the quality of the care delivered.

    We are a country that leads the world in health care innovation. We have to zealously protect that aspect. No other country in the world is positioned to take our place if we take our eye off this important work.

    I agree that this is a tactic utilized by all political parties. However, my point was to expose the hypocrisy of the Democrat party. They continue to claim that the grass roots movement protesting Obama’s health care reform is merely a fabrication of the Republican party and other conservative groups while they are the ones who are paying people to pretend to support this legislation.

    It’s one thing to organize to protest the health care reform legislation. But, it’s another when one party or the other attempts to fabricate a grass roots movement by “paying” people to organize and protest. This is clearly what the Democrat party is doing. I have yet to see any evidence supporting their claim that the Republicans are doing this exact same thing.

    I agree that as American’s we have the right and freedom to speak out against any administration. I remember Hilary Clinton’s passionate speech in 2003 screeching “I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you’re not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.” Somehow this no longer applies to Americans wanting to speak out against health care reform and the Obama administration.
