FreedomWorks, an industry-funded group that helps fund and organize tea parties and other protests, has released an “August Recess Action Kit” to urge health care reform opponents to attend town hall meetings and “turn up the heat” on their representatives.

The kit includes postcards that read, “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that she’s ‘not afraid of August,’ but she should be.” The cards, which you can send to friends and neighbors, also has space for the place and time of the next local town hall.

And there’s a letter that says Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and President Obama should also be afraid.

It may be true that August is just a month, but it’s also true that the longer we have to expose the real intentions and the economic ramifications of the Cap and Tax and health care reform legislation on the table, the more afraid Ms. Pelosi, Senator Reid, and President Obama should be.

FreedomWorks also includes a helpful Google Map of upcoming town halls, and encourages supporters to email pictures and videos of the events they attend.
