Event Description

Please join us in DC to lobby our congressmen to VOTE NO on Obamacare 2.0. Join us Tuesday, March 16th, beginning at 9:00am outside the Cannon
House Office Building (Independence Ave. SE and New Jersey SE). We will
be storming the three House Office Buildings: Cannon, Longworth and
Rayburn. Our message is simple: VOTE NO on Obamacare 2.0.

FreedomWorks will be joining Tea Party groups and all other
organizations that are fighting to defeat Obamacare 2.0. Please meet us
in front of the Cannon House Office Building to pick up an area map,
office locations, talking points and lobbying tips. For more information

Please note that there are multiple entrances to all three buildings,
so try to use all of them.

Buses can drop off passengers at Maryland Ave. and 3rd Street SW. Click here for more information about bus permits and

If you can't make it to DC for this important event, please visit the
local office of your congressman. You can find the office location by
visiting http://house.gov

Please make sure that you find out where your congressmen is, and then
go inside and ask his staff for a face to face meeting. Stay there as
long as you have to in order to get a meeting. Ask your friends who
couldn't make it to DC to call Tuesday morning to say that they support
you, but that they couldn't make it themselves. This will send a
powerful message to your congressman.

Longworth House Office Building has a cafeteria where you can grab
lunch. Also, some have asked where the closest metro stop is. It's
Capitol South on the Blue/Orange lines.


How to Defeat Obamacare 2.0

Many activists are wondering how to fight the final battle against Obamacare 2.0. Now that
the president has made it clear he wants to jam a bad bill down our
throats through "reconciliation" we must renew our efforts to stop this
from happening.

After a morning conference call with activists from around the country, I wanted to share a few of their ideas with you. Most of these
activities should be organized immediately, but their should be a major
focus on the townhall idea during the congressional Easter Recess, which
begins March 27th.

UPDATE: Fox News ran with a story about our strategy for Obamacare 2.0!

1. FreedomWorks has put together an online petition against the use of "reconciliation." You can sign it here: http://nohealthcarereconciliation.com
We will personally deliver copies of the petition to Capitol Hill in
the weeks ahead, and will post the pictures and videos on this blog.
Please sign the petition and forward the link to your friends.

2. District office visits. We need to spend a LOT of time inside and outside district offices this month. To find out where
your congressman has an office, please visit http://house.gov Be sure to try and schedule
teams of two or three to go to the district office and meet with
congressional staff. Every person going inside the office should deliver
hand-written letters from their friends, family and neighbors about
Obamacare 2.0 and the use of reconciliation. This will make a powerful
statement about where the American people stand.

3. District office protests. Most of you know exactly how to do these! Keep up the pressure on your congressman by
protesting outside the district offices. This could be done at the same
time as the district office visits, or at different times. Have everyone
protesting pick up their cell phones and call the DC office of your
congressman to let him know that you are protesting outside his district
office. Invite the local newspapers and tv stations to attend your

4. Townhall meetings. These can be done throughout the month of March, and especially into the Easter Recess starting March
27th. Put together a public forum on healthcare, and focus on
reconciliation. Invite your group and the public, and have an open
microphone for citizens to speak out. If you congressman is around,
invite him or her to attend. If they refuse to do so, just put up an
empty chair with a nameplate and microphone. Create a visual that shows
that your congressman doesn't want to face the people on this critical
issue. If we can re-create the August 2009 townhall brouhaha, we will
win this fight once and for all.

5. Protest incumbent re-filings. Watch this great video from the Pulaski Tea Party group in Arkansas. They protested
inside the state capitol building in Little Rock as Senator Blanche
Lincoln was filling out the paperwork to run for U.S. Senate. Invite the
media and make your protest very public. Thanks to Bob Porto and Jebb
Young for sharing this idea with the country!

Finally, thank you to Robin S. of Punta Gorda, FL for sharing this target list of vulnerable liberals in the House of Representatives.
These folks should face the most grassroots activity from limited
government activists. Again, visit http://house.gov to find out where they have
offices in their districts.

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.
