URGENT: Thousand converge on Capitol Hill to oppose government-run health care! Last-minute calls/letters needed now!

Apologies if this message is off-topic or redundant, but time is of the essence and I feel it's important to get this out to as many economic freedom supporters as possible.

  Word is that thousands of protesters are converging on Capitol Hill this weekend to oppose the government health care takeover! I wish I could tell you I'm optimistic their voices will be heard, but there is a full-court press by the congressional leadership to ram this unaffordable "reform" through Congress by any means necessary, and right now, 19 hours before the anticipated critical votes, it's too close to call. This site has a real-time vote count meter: http://www.nrcc.org/CodeRed/main.php. Right now the count is tied at 211 for and 211 against, with 9 undecided! The number needed to defeat the bill is 216!

  Scroll down for links with video of the protests, an interview where Obama gets nailed with tough questions and essentially repeats Nancy Pelosi's outrageous statement that you get to know what's in the bill after it's passed! Also a projected timeline for tomorrow's voting.

  When they're not occupied typing emails or dialing digits to call your representatives, keep your fingers crossed!


  Why not let the phone ring at some congressional offices while watching some of these videos?

Patriots Storm Capitol Hill

Chaos reigns in Rules Committee meetings on the Hill today, according to Drudge. www.drudgereport.com
One Tweet from Pete Sessions says, "For last hour, Rules Cmte has heard loud chanting from Americans 3 stories down outside - #killthebill."

Just like civics class:

  In reference to the "Bret Baier For President" sign held by the protester above, here's the transcript (from http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2010/03/17/bret_baiers_interview_transcript_president_obama.html) of his terrific, hard-hitting interview with Obama on Wednesday (see the video along with a car commercial here - http://video.foxnews.com/v/4113576/fox-news-exclusive-president-obama):

There were indeed thousands of protestors in Washington today,
but they came for a long-planned demonstration for immigration reform:


The link sited, and which Bruce Cohen even wanted on LP party websites,

  According to this Wall Street Journal article, "Tens of thousands of demonstrators descended on Capitol Hill Saturday, protesting the expansion of government spending" and "A spokesman for D.C. Fire and Emergency Medical Services estimated the crowd at 'in excess of 75,000' people":


  Sadly, it wasn't enough to stop this misguided legislation from being pushed through.
