As the polls continue to go south on heatlh care reform, Democrats and their supporters are beginning a counter offensive that include holding more than 500 events between now and September 8th, when Congress returns back from their summer break.
Politico reports that the Democratic National Committee and its grassroots arm, Organizing For America, are helping to organize the effort along with the Health Care for America Now, a group pushing to create government-run insurance plan.
One such event takes place this Saturday in Orlando.
