Michele Bachmann on Sean Hannity last night, March 18, 2010
WASHINGTON, March 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — An unprecedented coalition of grassroots and “tea party” groups is launching the final push before a possible vote by the House. Coming together under the auspices of the American Grassroots Coalition, various events held by different groups will be coordinated, including a noon rally at the U.S. Capitol on Saturday, a candlelight vigil and “virtual vigil” leading up to the vote.
“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 past two weeks has seen the “Take The Town Halls To Washington” initiative get nearly 1,000 people to DC to meet with approximately 30 Congressman. The event culminated in the rally at Taft Park near the Capitol, which was sponsored by Tea Party Express. Over 1,500 people assembled to rally against the health care bill and then meet with their representatives.
While the Capitol Police diverted the stage and sound for the park rally, grass roots activists innovated and used a park bench and bull horn to get their message to the attendees!
The following actions are planned for the next 72 hours:
- Calling campaigns to the House by constituents to vote no on the bill
- “Talk to Washington” health care town halls in Mississippi, Pennsylvania and other states
- Code Red rally in Washington, DC at 12 noon on Saturday at Upper Senate Park
- Nationwide “Virtual Vigil” on BlogTalk radio sponsored by DoctorsandPatients.org
- Candlelight vigil around the Capitol on Saturday night
Featured speakers at the Washington, D.C. Rally on Saturday will include:
- Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann (MN)
- Congressman Tom Price (GA)
- Congressman Joe Wilson (SC)
- Congressman Phil Gingrey (GA)
- State Senator Judson Hill (GA)
- Actor & Activist Jon Voight
- Dr. Milton Wolf, Barack Obama‘s second cousin who opposes Obamacare
- Colin Hanna, Let Freedom Ring
- Jim Martin, 60 Plus
- Phil Kerpen, Americans for Prosperity
- Tim Phillips, Americans for Prosperity
- Andrew Langer, Institute for Liberty
- Kathryn Serkes, Doctor Patient Medical Association
- Mark Skoda, Memphis Tea Party
- Amy Kremer, Tea Party Express
- Jennifer Hulsey, American Grassroots Coalition
- FreedomWorks Representative
- Ben Cunningham, Founder of the Tennessee Tax Revolt
- Darla Dawald, Grassfire / Resistnet
Grassroots activists everywhere have worked to inform themselves, notify their representatives of their objections and take action in the form of rallies, meetings and calls into those representatives. Individual groups have worked to stop the health care legislation while coordinating with each other to amplify their message and their efforts.
Amy Kremer, of Tea Party Express, commented, “We had a great rally this week in DC and people have overwhelmed us with their desire to do it again on Saturday. With so many people concerned about this legislation and the ability to come toWashington on a weekend, we are working within this coalition to expand the Code Red rally participation.”
The coalition of Tea Party and grassroots organizations and leadership is committed to changing the dynamics of this legislative process. “The Democratic led Congress is using procedural and legislative rules to ignore the overwhelming opposition to this,” said Mark Skoda of Memphis Tea Party. “The will of the American people is being subverted by these actions and the grass roots activists who make up this coalition are focusing their energy to kill the bill.”
The coalition includes:
- 60 Plus
- Alexandria Tea Party
- American Grassroots Coalition
- Americans for Prosperity
- Americans for Tax Reform
- Cincinnati Tea Party
- Cincinnati 9/12 Project
- Concerned Women for America
- Constitutional Sovereignty Alliance
- Constitutional Tea Party

Jobless claims, March 19, 2010, Small decline
From Market Watch, March 18, 2010.
“Weekly jobless claims decline 5,000 to 457,000″
“The number of people applying for unemployment benefits fell by 5,000 in the latest week, marking the third straight drop, but there’s little evidence companies are ready to hire at a pace that would sharply reduce the nation’s high jobless rate.
In the week ended March 13, initial claims dropped to a seasonally-adjusted 457,000 from 462,000 in the prior week, the Labor Department said Thursday. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch predicted claims would subside to 455,000. See our complete economic calendar.
The four-week average of initial claims — a better gauge of employment trends than the volatile weekly number — fell by 4,250 to 471,250.”
“”Claims first reached their current level nearly four months ago, in late November, and the lack of progress since then is disconcerting,” Ian Shepherdson of High Frequency Economics wrote in an email.
Many companies are leery of hiring new workers until they see demand pick up. Some are also awaiting the outcome of legislative battles in Washington over issues such as health care, energy and taxes. Major changes in those arenas could significantly impact the cost of hiring new workers.
Jobless claims “are not yet at levels typically associated with payroll growth,” John Ryding of RDQ Economics said. Ryding estimates weekly claims would have to fall to 400,000 or lower to signify a hiring trend.
Meanwhile, the number of people who continue to get regular state unemployment checks rose by 12,000 to a seasonally-adjusted 4.58 million in the week ended March 6. That’s the most recent data available.”

Obama a liar, CNN, Jack Cafferty, Obamacare, Health Care Bill
Jack Cafferty on CNN calls Obama a liar.
“CNN – Liar in the White House”
Here are some notable quotes from Cafferty.
“White House and Democratic leaders will hold informal, that’s another word for secret negotiations, meant to shut Republicans and the public out of the process. That’s a far cry from the election, when then candidate Obama pledged to “broadcast the negotiations on Cspan so that the American people can see what the choices are.””
“President Obama hasn’t even made a token effort to keep his campaign promises of more openness and transparency in government. It was all just another lie that was told to get elected.”
“When White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was asked whether the administration would support televising the negotiations, he refused to answer. Instead mumbling something about I haven’t seen the letter. That wasn’t the question Mr. Gibbs . You either support openness or you don’t. The democrats insist this is all on the up and up with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying “There’s never been a more open process for any legislation.” Really? This is the same Nancy Pelosi, who you may recall, after becoming speaker in 2006, promised the democrats would have “the most honest, most open and most ethical congress in history.””
“Here’s hoping the voters remember some of this crap when the mid term elections roll around later this year.”

Obamacare, Health care bill, Truth from doctors and experts
Here are some of my favorite videos and testimony and experts on Obamacare, the Health Care Bill being forced on us.
All you need to know about health care reform
* Note two of the videos are no longer available here.
What is the current attempt by Obama and liberal Democrats at health care reform all about?
- Appeasing their far left core support.
- More control over the American people to get votes.
- Payback to trial lawyers and other big supporters (refer to contribution table above).
- Achieving the goals of far left, socialist, communists who are controlling the party with the goal of redistribution of wealth..
The Difference Between Canada and the U.S. Health Care Systems
Sally C. Pipes understands Canadian health care. As the former Assistant Director of the free-market Fraser Institute, she lived under Canada’s national health care system.
Today Pipes is president of the Pacific Research Institute and author of the new book, The Top Ten Myths of American Health Care. She spoke at the Cato Institute July 15, 2009.
Parker Griffith Republican representative leaves Democrat Party over Health Care Bill
“A radiation oncologist, Griffith cited the Democrats’ health care plans as a reason for his switch. He was one of 39 Democrats to vote against the bill in the House last month.
“I want to make it perfectly clear that this bill is bad for our doctors,” he said at the press conference, according to the AP. “It’s bad for our patients. It’s bad for the young men and women who are considering going into the health care field.”

Milton R Wolf, MD, Obama Health Care Bill, Primum nil nocere, First do no harm
Dr Milton R Wolf, a cousin of Barack Obama, was on the Sean Hannity Show on Fox, March 16, 2010. I was very impressed with Dr. Wolf. He stayed consistent with his earlier statements that he was against Obamacare and that the Health Care Bill will hurt our health care system and likely prevent some people from getting care.
Reported here March 12, 2010.
“Dr Milton R Wolf, Obama cousin, Obama Health Care Bill”
“Primum nil nocere.”First, do no harm. This guiding principle is a bedrock of medical care. Sadly, those politicians who would rewrite our health care laws do not live in the same universe as do the doctors and health care professionals who must practice it.
“Imagine if, like physicians, politicians were personally held to the incredibly high level of scrutiny that includes civil and financial liability for any unintended consequence of their decisions. Imagine if they were forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars each year on malpractice insurance and still faced the threat of multimillion-dollar lawsuits with every single decision they made. If so, a government takeover of health care would be the furthest thing from their minds.
Obamacare proponents would have us believe that we will add 30 million patients to the system without adding providers, we will see no decline in the quality of care for the millions of Americans currently happy with the system, and -if you act now!- we will save money in the process. But why stop there? Why not promise it will no longer rain on weekends and every day will be a great hair day?
America has the finest health care delivery system in the world. Let’s not forget that and put it at risk in the name of reform. Desperate souls across the globe flock to our shores and cross our borders every day to seek our care. Why? Our system provides cures while the government-run systems from which they flee do not. Compare Europe’s common cancer mortality rates to America’s: breast cancer – 52 percent higher in Germany and 88 percent higher in the United Kingdom; prostate cancer – a staggering 604 percent higher in the United Kingdom and 457 percent higher in Norway; colon cancer – 40 percent higher in the United Kingdom.
Look closer at the United Kingdom. Britain’s higher cancer mortality rate results in 25,000 more cancer deaths per year compared to a similar population size in the United States. But because the U.S. population is roughly five times larger than the United Kingdom’s, that would translate into 125,000 unnecessary American cancer deaths every year. This is more than all the mothers and fathers, aunts and uncles, cousins and children in Topeka, Kan. And keep in mind, these numbers are for cancer alone. America also has better survival rates for other major killers, such as heart attacks and strokes. Whatever we do, let us not surrender the great gains we have made. First, do no harm. Lives are at stake.””
