Hands Off My Healthcare Rally

The battle against Obamacare and its obvious disregard of the U.S. Constitution has finally reached the U.S. Supreme Court. The Tea Party Express, along with constitutional conservatives across the nation have opposed this legislation from its inception, and whether it be by judicial rule or congressional repeal, we are determined to fight until it is no more.

This is why it is so important for you to join us in support of the Hands Off My Health Care Rally at Upper Senate Park on March 27th at 1:00PM. We are teaming up with Americans for Prosperity and 15 other conservative organizations, along with grassroots activists across the country to rally against Obamacare!

For those unable to join us in person, please support the cause by signing our petition and sending it to your representatives for free!

Hands Off My Healthcare!
It is crucial Americans support the March 27th “Hands Off Our Health Care” rally at Upper Senate Park to show our determination in ending Obamacare. Sign this petition and then send it to your federal representatives!


The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is an unprecedented overreach of federal power aimed at redefining the Constitution and distorting the intentions of our nation’s Founding Fathers.

The Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution did not grant Congress the power to directly impose an individual mandate to purchase healthcare insurance. Congress has never before attempted to use the Commerce Clause to justify imposing a mandate on economic inactivity; interstate commerce would not be affected. 

The Tea Party movement has prided itself on defending the Constitution, and Obamacare is an attempt by a leftist Congress and Executive Branch to fundamentally and unconstitutionally alter our founding documents. America has not seen such an assault on and blatant disregard for our Constitution since September 17th, 1787 when it was adopted and ratified

Now, as the Supreme Court gets ready to hear arguments over the Constitutionality of the individual mandate, we feel we should make this severe overreach of federal powers known to the America people. Whether the Supreme Court strikes down the mandate and throws Obamacare out in its entirety, or the Congress repeals it, Obamacare must not stand!

Gotta go, I'm going seal watching!

I hope it isn’t raining so I can ride the motorcycle up ther. It’s a lot easier to find a place to park for it.

I am sure the Union Station lot will be full.

They were directing the thread away from it’s purpose, to bring attention to the rally today.

Thanks for the bump!

From Atlas Shrugged:

“I quit when medicine was placed under State control, some years ago,” said Dr. Hendricks. “Do you know what it takes to perform a brain operation? Do you know the kind of skill it demands, and the years of passionate, merciless, excruciating devotion that go to acquire that skill? That was what I would not place at the disposal of men whose sole qualification to rule me was their capacity to spout the fraudulent generalities that got them elected to the privilege of enforcing their wishes at the point of a gun. I would not let them dictate the purpose for which my years of study had been spent, or the conditions of my work, or my choice of patients, or the amount of my reward. I observed that in all the discussions that preceded the enslavement of medicine, men discussed everything — except the desires of the doctors. Men considered only the ‘welfare’ of the patients, with no thought for those who were to provide it. That a doctor should have any right, desire or choice in the matter was regarded as irrelevant selfishness; his is not to choose, they said, only ‘to serve.’ That a man who’s willing to work under compulsion is too dangerous a brute to entrust with a job in the stockyards never occurred to those who proposed to help the sick by making life impossible for the healthy. I have often wondered at the smugness with which people assert their right to enslave me, to control my work, to force my will, to violate my conscience, to stifle my mind — yet what is it that they expect to depend on, when they lie on an operating table under my hands?” -Ayn Rand
