Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey is organizing a march on Washington against the Obama administrations healthcare plan that he hopes will finally finish off the Democratic push for socialized medicine.
The march, organized by Armeys political group FreedomWorks, is scheduled for Sept. 12 and is already generating hundreds of thousands of responses, the Texas Republican tells Newsmax.TV. The group is isnt providing transportation, but that doesnt seem to be a problem.

Why not merge with the Tea Party?
The parade has started, and Armey is running like hell to get in front of it to lead it.
Why not merge with the 9-12 project?
I think he just did.
We knew this was going to happen. If Dick Armey gets in front of the Tea Party Express, he’s road kill.
Oh hell yeah, I’m going to be there.
I deeply resent Dick Armey trying to co-opt the tea-party movement and make it his own.
I agree. I wish Dick Armey would just butt out.
This has been planned for a while (if you can call it planned.) Armey is just trying to take over something he didn’t create.
I understand your feelings, and I believe they are very valid, but the end purpose of the tea parties - namely the inevitable increase in taxation from government overspending - is served by defeating this healthcare mess. I have no doubt that Armey seeks to grow his organization through this action, but I’m not so sure that would be such a bad thing. Revolutions eat their young, as Voltaire said.
I’ll be there with a smile.
I will point out as well that Dick Armey’s FREEDOM WORKS is a PROPONENT of COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM, and the website is full of statements about their position, which is much the same as Bush/McCain/Palin...they all agree that their should be a path to citizenship for illegal aliens...using the economy as an excuse for a “path” form of amnesty.
It will be interesting to see what happens when Obama begins pushing the issue. If Tea Partiers oppose as they should, no doubt FREEDOM WORKS will no longer be ‘friend’, but ‘foe’.
:) Guess I meant “officially.”
This is a “We the People” movement...not a leech politicians. This jerk needs to butt out and crawl back into his hole.
that’s what I mean’t. Doesn’t he know about it?
He’s got some name recognition, and if he can kill this health care debacle, then I don’t care who does it, as long as it gets done.
Focus. Just keep the focus on groundswell. Just keep members of the public and their concern in front of any politician/bureaucrat. Choosing politicians can come later.
I can't blame him.
What is so bad about a politician on our side helping us?
lol. freedomworks has been involved in several prior tea party events. There are a LOT of different players involved in these evetns, let them all join the parade ... the more the merrier.
There’s gonna be a LOT of us in DC on 9/12.
