Thursday March On DC - Making A House Call Against The Healthcare Bill

Make a House Call on Washington - Hands Off Our Healthcare!
Thousands will join Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann on Thursday, November 5th at 12:00 Noon, to deliver letters to Congress protesting the proposed government takeover of healthcare.
Lawmakers are calling on Americans to storm the Capitol on Thursday in an “Emergency House Call on Congress” to stop the House from passing the Democrats’ health-care bill this week.

A group of legislators led by Reps. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., and Pete Hoekstra, R-Mich., will be holding an emergency town-hall meeting outside the Capitol at 12 p.m. to protest the health-care bill set to hit the House floor. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has indicated that a vote on the bill could take place as soon as Thursday.

Bachmann told WND she is urging citizens to come to Washington and “pay an emergency House call to Congress.”

“This is the most effective way we have to kill socialized medicine and to do it this week,” she said. “Nothing is more effective at reaching a congressman than having a citizen come to Washington, D.C. – not asking for a handout, not asking for tax money, not asking to take some liberty away from somebody else, but just asking for freedom.”

She said the American people spoke loud and clear this summer, telling Congress they don’t want “cradle-to-grave takeover of health care.” According to Rasmussen Reports, a full 54 percent of voters are now opposed to the House version of health-care reform. Only 23 percent of all voters strongly support the plan while nearly twice as many, or 44 percent, expressed strong opposition.

“We saw tea parties. We saw the 9/12 movement where literally hundreds of thousands of Americans, if not more, all converged on the Capitol on a Saturday. People did this to get the attention of their members of Congress,” Bachmann said. “This is the week when the decision will be made about whether we will choose liberty or tyranny, whether we will choose socialized medicine or a free market.”

"It appears they plan to push it through, and unless the American people push back, unless they take the extraordinary step of coming to Washington at noon on Thursday, this bill will go through. We Republicans can't stop the passage. But with resistance from the American people, I am fully confident it can be defeated." ~ Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.
