I saw this news thanks to problembear:

With the help of some local Republicans, a national group is trying to rally Montanans - and others - against health care reforms backed by President Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress.

Patients United Now, a group recently formed by a national foundation that champions conservative causes, is staging public rallies in Montana and running TV ads warning against "government-controlled health care" or a "Washington takeover" of health care.

The group's chief organizer in Montana is Jake Eaton, a former executive director of the Montana Republican Party.

Jake Eaton? Jake Eaton? You've got to be sh*tting me! I mean, this guy was drummed out of town for his leading role in the Montana GOP's voter suppression efforts last fall. He "chose" to go to Madison, WI, to "pursue other interests." Who knew, besides denying Montanans the right to vote, Eaton was interested in denying them health care, too!

Seriously, isn't Eaton guilty of violating several Montana statutes? Can we arrest him now he's back in the state? And isn't hiring him to run this effort a tacit acknowledgment that this is dirty politics?

Apparently Eaton's pals in "Patients United" - the group that hired this jack*ss to derail health care reform - are Tim Fox and Steve Daines. I mean, first string this is not. Dennison's description of the group:

Patients United Now was formed by the Americans for Prosperity Foundation, a Washington, D.C., group that campaigns against liberal and left-leaning causes and promotes conservative causes.

For example, the foundation has downplayed global warming, opposes the president's efforts to address global warming, and opposed the president's economic stimulus package.

Patients United is against not only single-payer health care, it's against a public option for insurance. Odd, given that all the energy in Montana recently aimed at Baucus et al has been in favor of a robust government response to the health care crisis...

How about this message...it is OBVIOUS that Republicans are going to do everything they can to kill health care reform...for two...maybe three reasons..

1st reason...they want to protect the corporatization of health care because it generates HUGE revenue for their financial backers...

2nd reason...if meaningful health care reform, that includes all citizens, is passed on the Democrats watch, the Republicans will not win another election for 30 years...

3rd....they are, in general, very mean spirited and hate America...
