Grassroots “Code Red Rally” Urges
Congress to Vote No on Washington Takeover
Saturday Health Care Rally on Capitol Grounds Urges “Kill the Bill”
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.”
