Yesterday, a group of forty members of the Pittsburgh Tea Party Movement journeyed to Washington, D.C. by bus to attend a meeting with U.S. Representative Jason Altmire (D) to discuss concerns about his position on the Senate health care bill. The group, comprised mostly of small business owners, passionately expressed their concerns about the Senate bill and repeatedly asked Rep. Altmire to vote no and kill the bill.
DONATIONS-TH2DC is a very low budget operation. We are all volunteers, no one receives any compensation of any kind. But we do have expenses mainly related to the War Room operation. The Memphis Tea Party (Thank you Mark Skoda) has agreed to help with the War Room and other incidental expenses. Please HELP by making a donation, THANKS.
Manned 8 am to 10 pm every day. Stop by any time for faxes, computers, phones, maps, a place to rest.
If members of Congress won't come to their constituents, their constituents will come to them.
That's why we're launching "Take the Town Halls to Washington" on March 9, and we will keep this project going until March 31, 2010, or whenever Congress leaves for Easter recess.
The idea is to bring a tea party town hall to the 66 members of the House of Representatives whose support of Obamacare is wavering. We want to let them know there is only one vote their constituents will support: No on Obamacare. We are asking local tea party activists to travel to Washington during this period, and make sure that each of these 66 members is reminded every day that if they fail to vote against Obamacare, they will be voted out of office in November.
