FreedomWorks North and South Carolina Activists to Hold Six Townhall Events in Two Days

fw3WHAT: Following the launch of FreedomWorks’ online action center, www.DemandATownhall.com, FreedomWorks and its devoted network of North and South Carolina activists have planned an action day consisting of town hall meetings, protests, and an honest discussion of the future of ObamaCare with North Carolina Congressman Mark Meadows of (NC-11) and FreedomWorks Vice President of Public Policy Dean Clancy.

FreedomWorks Vice President of Public Policy commented: “Since the launch of www.DemandATownhall.com, FreedomWorks has received a tremendous amount of positive feedback from our network of 6 million activists nationwide regarding our support of efforts to demand townhalls with members of Congress. While most members of Congress will spend the month of August dodging exposure, FreedomWorks has upped the stakes and said, ‘If you are one of the Republicans turning your back on a chance to address your constituents and the opportunity to dismantle ObamaCare before enrollment begins, we want to know your reasons why, and we want to hear them straight from you.

FreedomWorks would like to thank, liberty minded leaders like Congressman Meadows and Senator Mike Lee for leading the fight to defund ObamaCare and their consistent willingness to participate in open townhall discussions. Without these privileged leaders, groups like FreedomWorks and individuals alike would not be able to have an honest understanding of the unintended consequences of Washington’s bogus legislation tactics being displayed in ObamaCare.
