Americans have a right to organize and speak, and we have a right to know who they are and what they're up to - updated

Dr. Maddow takes on FreedomWorks and their connections. Because y'all should know.

Rachel will educate you about FreedomWorks, their background, their ties, their methods.

From the transcript of Rachel's show, the conclusion of this segment:
Washington lobbyists and health care executives and former Republican Party officials have just as much a right to shout down the policy debate about health care reform as anyone else does. These folks have just as much a right to try to derail this entire process as anyone else does.

But we have a right to know who they are and who is paying them for their efforts. These guys are pros. This is an industry. This is beltway politics being organized and played out in town halls across the country.

And as we have said before-and I fear we will have to continue saying and saying and saying again-this should be reported as such.
[Emphasis mine]
