Local GOP plans 'pep rally' for town hall while giving Dem 'kudos'

The Los Angeles County GOP sent out an e-mail on Thursday to its members, encouraging them to attend an "impromptu 'pep rally'" before an August 11 healthcare town hall meeting that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is holding in the L.A. suburbs.

Yet the announcement gives "kudos" to Schiff, noting that he's the only L.A. County congressman holding a town hall.

"If you can, please join us at 5:30p in front of the library for lively discussion and perhaps an impromptu 'pep rally,'" says L.A. County GOP chair Jane Barnett in the e-mail.

The "pep rally" is also organized by the San Gabriel Valley Tea Party Coalition.

"Get your questions ready!" beckons the e-mail.

"So let's heed the President's caution and do our part in dispelling any 'misinformation' and make sure EVERY citizen knows EXACTLY what's in this Healthcare bill," said Barnett.

Dear *****,

This coming Tuesday, August 11th, Rep. Adam Schiff is conducting a Townhall to discuss the Obama Healthcare Plan.

Townhall with Rep. Adam Schiff

Get your questions ready!

"Blue Dog" Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff is taking time out of his August recess to host a special Townhall on Healthcare Reform. Please join Congressman Schiff and the San Gabriel Valley Tea Party Coalition on Tuesday, August 11th from 7p to 8:30p at the Alhambra Civic Center Public Library for an extremely important discussion.

President Obama recently stated in one of his ORGANIZING FOR HEALTHCARE emails:

"Over the next month there is going to be an avalanche of misinformation and scare tactics from those seeking to perpetuate the status quo."

So let's heed the President's caution and do our part in dispelling any "misinformation" and make sure EVERY citizen knows EXACTLY what's in this Healthcare bill.

We encourage everyone to arrive early as this event is expected to be heavily attended. If you can, please join us at 5:30p in front of the library for lively discussion and perhaps an impromptu "pep rally".

Tuesday August 11, 2009
Alhambra Civic Center Public Library
101 S. First Street
Alhambra, CA
5:30pm - 7:00pm: Rally in front of Library
7:00pm - 8:30pm: Townhall Meeting with Rep. Schiff


Kudos to Rep. Schiff for having a Townhall meeting to discuss this most important issue. None of the other Congressmen from Los Angeles County are having one.

Let's make sure we get a lot of people out to let Congress know how we feel about the Healthcare plan that has been proposed. Please try to attend.

Sincerely,

Jane Barnett
