With "invitations" flying all of the Internet, it seems certain that Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, will have a crowd at his health care forums on Saturday in Rutland
His only competition is likely to be sunshine -- a rare commodity this summer that might lure a few people to a lake or a mountain instead of church halls.
The Vermont Tea Party movement has called on its supporters to show up early, speak up, ask good questions and keep it civil.
The Vermont Progressive Party blog urges followers to show up, too. Traven Leyshom
writes, "You are needed at Bernie's meeting to show support for a meaningful discussion of health care reform. We can show that large numbers of people support what Bernie is trying to do."
The Vermont Democratic Party just sent out an email urging people to go to the health care forums, too. Chairwoman Judy Bevans
' call is sure to rankle
Republicans. She writes, "As I'm sure you've heard, the National Republican party and their operatives are invading health care town hall meetings that Democratic members of Congress have set up across the country ... These fake grassroots, or AstroTurf
activists have been popping up all over the country and sadly it look like they might show up here in Vermont."
It's going to be one hot discussion, don't ya think?
Will anyone be there seeking answers or will they are be looking to score political points?
