Posted on 11/06/2009 1:37:44 PM PST by Starman417
After receiving no answer from emails requesting a town hall health care meeting, I took up Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann's call to make a house call on our congressional representative.
Despite less than a week's notice, up to 50,000 Americans from across the country gathered at the steps of the Capitol Building yesterday to send a message to Congress - 'kill the bill'. Pelosicare is not health care reform, it is a power grab.
At noon, 40 Republican members of Congress filed out of the Capitol building as the crowd shouted 'Where's Nancy?' Madame speaker was not present on Capitol Hill this day, apparently she was too busy breaking arms over her health care scheme elsewhere.
FYI: Due to an overwhelming number of participants at this meet up, I could not get close to the speakers podium during the rally, but had an excellent view of the Capital Building. I chose that view to capture the speeches on video.

I was listening to Quinn and Rose this morning. On the News at the break, the news said “Hundreds”.
I hate the MSM and their toadies.
My sister attended and just got back home this morning at 5:15 AM.
She stated there were well over 10,000 but she couldn’t give any more info since she was right up front. It definitely could have been more by the way she described it.
I was there, and there were thousands. I don’t know exactly how many, but I think 20,000 is probably reasonable. Definitely at least 10,000.
And you know what? Something happened in Texas to obliterate any coverage of the event. A really cynical person could see something in it without much difficulty.
Unfortunately I was also considering the same thing, but then I am very cynical.
Never let a good crisis go to waste? Was that the quote? Yes, I’m awful.....
