The first thing the new organizer did in Dallas was call for a rally down at the grassy knoll, where Kennedy was murdered. At the rally, everybody got into groups to form canvassing teams, and everybody signed up for phone banking. It was July 25. This was going on all over the country.
Maybe the Senate is dragging its feet, and maybe the rich people, the insurance companies, and big Pharma think they are winning the media wars, but there's no substitute for grass roots organizing. They aren't kidding about health care reform.
