Washington DC Tea Party

Tea Party Patriots Bringing the Conscience of America to Washington DC

This week the President announced that the “healthcare debate was over”, and that “all that needed to be said about healthcare had already been said.” With that statement, the Democrats have been put on the spot because there is still no Republican support for either bill.

Traditionally, the Senate will pass one bill, and the House will pass a separate bill. Then, members from the House and Senate will go to Conference Committee to combine the two bills in order to prepare it for both chambers of Congress to vote on it again. Once the same bill is passed in both chambers, it then goes to the President to be signed into law.

Now, we are being told that the Senate will use a seldom-used procedure known as “reconciliation”. This procedure is generally used only for budgetary items, and, by itself, cannot be used to pass the entire healthcare bill. Additionally, in order for the Senate to be able to use reconciliation, the House would have to pass the exact same bill as the Senate. This is because the House does not have either the votes, or the willpower to start debate on a new bill that would later be reconciled, in the Senate. Here where it gets tricky, though: if the House passes the same bill that the Senate passed, there is no need for reconciliation because both chambers of Congress would have passed the same bill, meaning that it can then go to the President to be signed into law.

Last night, I participated in a conference call with a variety of folks involved who oppose the government takeover of healthcare. Together, we laid out a plan to target “Blue-Dog Democrats” in the House. The plan calls for 500 volunteers (per day) from across the country to follow 66 different Blue Dogs, including Jim Cooper, Tennessee’s fifth district representative.

We will have a war room setup at TV Worldwide Studios in Chantilly, VA to broadcast these “traveling protests,” live and unfiltered. Volunteers will follow the targets with video cameras, ask them pointed questions regarding the healthcare bill, then broadcast their answers on the internet and throughout the mainstream media.

The operation is set to start with a webcast March 9, and will last for 2 1/2 weeks (M-F).

Take The Town Halls To Washington

Nationwide Tea Party Coalition - "Take The Town Halls To Washington"
MEMPHIS, Tennessee (March 5, 2010) - The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is today announcing a new project, "Take The Town Halls To Washington", which is designed to bring tea party activists to Washington, DC during the month of March to meet, question and review the positions of approximately 60 Democrat members of the House of Representatives whose vote on the pending Health Care legislation has not yet been publicly announced. Tea Party Nation is a collaborating partner in the project.
Spokesman Mark A. Skoda, who is also Chairman of The Memphis TEA Party stated, "President Obama has indicated his willingness to ignore the people and force his bill through Congress using whatever means necessary. Our objective is to bring thousands of constituents to DC to meet with their representatives, capture their comments and produce a review of those positions on a daily basis. We believe that time is of the essence and the people need to understand where these representatives stand before any vote is taken."
Organizer, Michael Patrick Leahy further stated, "After more than a year of tea party resistance to the big government efforts of the Obama Administration, it all comes down to the next 3 weeks. The Administration has made it clear. They intend to ram down the Health Care takeover through a corrupt Congress by the end of this month, in direct defiance of the clearly expressed will of the American people.”
“It is time for every tea party activist across the country to consider dropping everything he or she is doing and join us in the most important battle of our life time. We need your energy, commitment, and efforts to make this succeed. We need you to consider coming to Washington during this 3 week period, and if you can’t come to Washington, be part of this project in your local area.”
A nationwide webcast is scheduled for Tuesday, March 9, 2010 with meetings in DC scheduled to begin the following day through March 31, 2010. Logistics are being coordinated for those coming to Washington and daily briefings and reviews are scheduled during the project. It is expected that visits will take place while Congress is in session from Monday through Friday.
The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is an informal federation of thirty local tea parties from around the country who work collaboratively on important national projects. It was the group that organized the February 27, 2009 “Nationwide Chicago Tea Party” in 51 cities around the country that launched the Tea Party Movement, as well as the April 15, 2009 Tax Day Tea Party, where 1 million tea party activists attended events in over 900 cities.
