Opponents Of Healthcare Bill Plan Rally In Washington

March 24, 2010 by  

Opponents of healthcare bill plan rally in Washington As the crucial healthcare vote in the House of Representatives approaches, opponents of the proposed legislation are stepping up their efforts to stop it.

Under the auspices of the American Grassroots Coalition, various anti-tax and Tea Party groups are launching the final push before the vote by holding coordinated events, including a noon rally at the U.S. Capitol on Saturday, a candlelight vigil and “virtual vigil” leading up to the vote.

Some of the speakers at the Saturday event will include Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN), actor and activist Jon Voight and Ben Cunningham, founder of the Tennessee Tax Revolt.

“All of the groups have a mutual goal — to band together to communicate the frustration of the people and demand the termination of this health bill legislation,” said Jennifer Hulsey, co-founder of American Grassroots Coalition. The coalition is comprised of dozens of organizations, including Americans for Tax Reform, National Taxpayers Union, Family Research Council and Institute for Liberty.

In the past two weeks, nearly 1,000 fiscal conservatives from across the country have been staging events around the capital under the Take The Town Halls To Washington initiative and met with some 30 members of Congress to express their frustration with the proposed reforms.

    It was a shame that a few shouted racial and homophobic slurs at SOME congressmEn and one spit on a congressman, that was bad enough but when they did the protest crowd cheered, makes you truly wonder what kind of people they really are. Why should anyone take them serious when they show no character and totally lack proper respect. TOTALLY SHAMEFUL

    • DaveH

      Oh yeah, unlike the polite and peaceful protestors at the Economic Summits:

      Sleepee, everybody on this board with half-a-brain knows you are just a Liberal Zealot who will dig deep to find the smallest speck of dirt. Why do you waste your time?

      • Smilee

        There you go off on a tangent again, said nothing about the subject matter, how can anyone have intelligent dialog with you, half a brain, I think its because you lack a brain or never learned how to use it if you do have one. Seldom have I seen your response contributing to the dialogue, name call and stupid remarks characterizes almost all of your posts

      • eyeswideopen

        Dave, you reference a Canadian situation, and think it is the Dem’s responsibility? The Canadians don’t want to deal with the Conservatives hate mongering pundits. Ann Coulter, will be lucky if she doesn’t get blasted again. You think that the hate she spews is acceptable? Sorry, I keep forgetting that you are wishing for a revolution to progress your party’s platform of anarchy. Ann is also trying to start on. Maybe the Libertarians should hire her themselves.

      • eyeswideopen

        Dave, by the way, while researching I found this quote from your hero Milton Friedman “In terms of holding down costs, one payer system directly administered by government systems such as exist in Canada and Great Britian, have a real advantage over our mixed system”.

        Sounds like he was endorsing single payer healthcare for us. How do you counter that statement? Found that in the Cato Inst. site.

    • Joe H.

      why should we be any different than the libberal, progressive,facist
      politicians?? they had no honor with us, showed no respect to us and they have never had ANY character!!!

      • Smilee

        You have not earned it so why should you expect any, rude foul mouthed people like yourself rarely get any respect nor should you

        • Joe H.

          Oh, and liars like you randy and eyes deserve respect??? You made the statement there were no minorities in the TEA party. Look at the picture above and weep jerk. i see one that looks chinese, one that looks Vietnamese, couple of othersand if you look in the lower left corner, (GASP) you will see a black!!! Thats just one norma non-wideangle shot!!! I’d be willing to bet any picture taken candidly would show MANY more!!!!

            Your one mixed up guy, I have made no comment about minorities what so ever, do you dream it or are you hallucinating again, if so better lay off the drugs. OH and what is it you think I lied about or was that just aa dream also. UNREAL!!!

          • eyeswideopen

            JoeH, google Myles Fisher. He is a kid, not a professional who has to document his photos. After what Fox did, substituting photos from one event to represent another event, I don’t have any faith in non-documented photos. This could be from any event. He very smartly cut off the sign or flag that was being held up. This could have been from the Immigration rally held the day before. You people are very sneaky and we can no longer trust that you will have ethics. Fox really showed what low levels the conservatives will sink too.

          • eyeswideopen

            Quinnipac poll shows tea party breakdown as follows: 88% white, 74% Republicans. Like it or not the white republicans own that party, with little representation of minorities. Own it dude, the whites are afraid.

  • DaveH

    This is how Liberals view free speech. It’s okay for them to issue whatever foul-mouthed personal attacks they want, but free speech doesn’t apply to their opposition:

    • Smilee

      NEWSMAX, Dumber than Dumb comes to mind, you do not really take them seriously do you?

      • Joe H.

        yup just like you four do huff N puff!!!! or is that huff and toke???

        • Smilee

          If you are never going to be on topic, why do you even bother posting on here, constant dumb stupid statements, no character what so ever

    • eyeswideopen

      DAVE, if you are going to reem the liberals, try to stay within this country if referring to our liberals. Each countries liberals have varying ideas and platforms. To lump them all together is rude and stupid. Hey, the Canadians don’t like radical crap anymore than we do.They have the right to not want their children exposed to fear mongering hateful speakers. Now are you against their personal liberties to decide what they don’t want??? You are too funny.

    Subject: FW: Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution

    As a widow of a military retiree, who stood with her husband for over 20 years while he served this country (which was the greatest in the world until this Congress and President took over), I have to say I agree. Shirley

    As a retired military man that have given over twenty-seven years of my life to my country, I truly feel that what this
    Country needs most is a new amendment to the Constitution . I am recommending that we add the 28th amendment to the Constitution of the UNITED STATES.

    For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that Congress members could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they didn’t pay into Social Security, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform that is being considered…in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

    This is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come, Jim.

    Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

    “Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Congressman, Senators and Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Congressman. Senators and Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States”.

    This 28th amendment to the Constitution of the UNITED STATES Will apply to all passed, present and future
    congressman, Senators And Representatives.
    Just think how must money this action would save the tax payers!!!!!
