I went to Allen West's Town Hall yesterday, and of course, the Shark Tank ran some videos. One of the commenters there posted a link to the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee's site , and I thought I'd share it with my fellow NB'ers. [Emphasis mine]
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) today expanded its paid and grassroots “Drive to 25” campaign to hold targeted House Republicans accountable for choosing to end Medicare rather than end taxpayer giveaways for Big Oil making huge profits or tax breaks for the ultra rich.
The DCCC is launching its enhanced Medicare Action Center, DontEndMedicare.com , with new signs for protests (with QR barcodes that direct people to the Action Center), a virtual phone bank, and tools to call or write your Representative. The DCCC will also be deploying e-mails to its 4.5 million person list asking them to take action this week and deploying a new round of automated phone calls. The DCCC previously ran radio ads, automated phone calls, live phone calls, and e-mails in targeted Republican districts.
In 20 districts, the DCCC will run automated phone calls highlighting that people between the ages of 44 and 54 paid into Medicare for more than 25 years, and the Republican budget that ends Medicare and protects Big Oil would result in these people needing an additional $182,000 in retirement savings to pay for their health care.

We need to double down on our efforts to ensure that our new conservative representation keep their seats, as well as try to get more conservatives in both the House and Senate. This means first and foremost, money. Do what you can, for the candidates in your districts, and other districts for those who we most want as future leaders of the conservative movement and take-over of the agenda of the Republican party. This freshman group of Congress has a huge and varied background and experience, not the usual political creatures and recycled lawyers we typically get. They deserve our protection and support for casting the brave votes, and standing by their convictions and promises for which we originally elected them.
If any of the people on this list are in your district, give us input. Obviously, our $$ are tight, but I am more than happy to go outside of my own district with donations to ensure we get a Super Majority next time around.
It's not too early to start. The enemy is already engaged. We must as well.
I blogged  this yesterday, and I'd encourage you to visit the Shark Tank  to see what the Sun-Sentinel described as "Allen West faces tough Town Hall Questions" ....really? 8 hecklers do not tough questions make. Does that look tough to anyone here? We've got to fight the media bias as well as the democrats.
