Obama campaign organization issue a statement. THE TRUTH: These disruptions are being organized and funded by special interest groups who are trying desperately to preserve the status quo. One of the groups behind these disruptions Conservatives for Patients' Rights is being helped by some of the same people behind the notorious 'Swiftboat' ads of 2004. Industry-backed groups Americans for Prosperity and FreedomWorks are also working behind the scenes to create the image of mass public opposition to health care, and have distributed talking points on how to disrupt meetings and drown out debate. One of these memos expressly stated that the goal was to "rattle" Congressional representatives, not have an intelligent debate. In many cases, Republican politicians are stoking the flames. In Texas, it was revealed that a local Republican Party Chair was behind an organized effort to disrupt a town hall. In Wisconsin, a protestor was outed as a former Republican operative. Meanwhile, Republican House Minority Leader John Boehner issued a statement applauding the disruptions  and Republican Representative Pete Sessions, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, said that the time for polite town halls is now over. Their goal is not to debate or to have their voices heard. The goal of these disruptions is to hijack the entire public discourse, shut down debate, intimidate and instill fear. If they succeed, all Americans -- Democrats, Republicans, and Independents -- will continue to struggle under the broken status quo. It's up to us to show Congress that those loudly opposing reform are a tiny minority being stirred up by special interests, and that a huge majority strongly supports enacting real health insurance reform in 2009. That's why Organizing for America is putting together thousands of events this month where you can reach out to neighbors, show your support, and make certain your members of Congress know that you're counting on them to act.
