Kill the Bill: See You in Washington, D.C.


This is it. The House votes on the Senate health care takeover bill on Sunday. If the bill passes, the battle is over. The statists will have won. Forget about reconciliation, that's almost irrelevant at this point. Forget about repealing the bill after the November elections or in 2013. I wouldn't count on piecemeal destruction of ObamaCare in the Supreme Court either.

I can't take this sitting down. I'm flying out to Washington, D.C. tomorrow. I hope some of you can be there too. If you can't make it to D.C., please join me here. I will be live blogging through the day here at RightKlik.

Details on the rally:

Washington, D.C.— Hands Off My Health Care, A Project of Americans for Prosperity®, is part of a grassroots coalition rallying on Capitol Hill on Saturday, March 20th at 12:00 noon in opposition to the health care overhaul that is expected to be voted on in the U.S. House on Sunday.

The noon Code Red Rally will feature speakers such as Rep. Michelle Bachmann, Rep. Joe Wilson, Rep. Tom Price, actor John Voight, Dr. Milton Wolf (President Obama’s second cousin who opposes Obamacare), and leaders from grassroots and issue organizations such as American Grassroots Coalition, Americans for Prosperity, Let Freedom Ring, 60 Plus, Tea Party Express, and many others. In addition to the rally, there will be a candlelight vigil around the Capitol on Saturday evening and a nationwide “virtual vigil” on BlogTalk radio sponsored by DoctorsandPatients.org.


“It is time for Washington to finally listen to the American people by voting to kill this bill,” said Phil Kerpen , AFP’s vice president for policy. “For an entire year, instead of creating jobs, this administration has distracted and divided the American people with wildly irresponsible and unpopular dead-end health care policies. This legislation will limit patient choice, increase bureaucracy, kill jobs, raise taxes, slash Medicare funding, create a system of rationing, and ultimately threaten our country’s financial solvency. American taxpayers, seniors, small businesses, minorities, and the middle class will suffer. This is not real reform and this bill must be defeated.”


What: Code Red Rally

We'll be attending our state's CODE RED rally at the same time as DC rally but held at the capitol in Salt Lake City.
This is most inconvenient for us because it comes during Utah caucus week, our single-most important election day; but the sacrifice is needed and important!
RK, we support you!!!
