Wow! Getting dolla bills from the White House to go and show fake support for the president’s health care plan is becoming quite the career option!
Faced with a souring public mood on health care reform, Democrats and their supporters are launching a national grassroots push Wednesday to show lawmakers that the majority of Americans still support overhauling the system.

Just so we’re clear – this isn’t “grassroots.” This is total astroturfing. When you have to PAY PEOPLE to get them to support your legislation – actually, that’s past any semblance of astroturfing, that’s total BSing.
The Democratic National Committee and its grassroots arm, Organizing for America, are helping to organize the effort along with the Health Care for America Now
