Patriots That LOVE America Rally in D.C. To Protest The Hate America Obamacare


Congressman Mike Pence was featured in two separate news reports on Fox News about the rally against a government takeover of health care that took place on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.


Tea Party Activists Make Last Stand Against Health Care Vote

FOX News

Just days after holding a rally in Washington, Tea Party activists returned Saturday to make one final stand against the health care reform bill ahead of an expected Sunday vote.

Thousands of Tea Partiers descended upon the Capitol in an effort to derail the march toward “Obamacare” by pressuring undecided lawmakers to vote “no” Sunday.

At times protestors broke into chants of “Kill the bill!”

More than 60 Tea Party affiliates organized the event in the four days since Tuesday’s rally after organizers were flooded with requests to hold another one for those who couldn’t take off of work for the first one.

Saturday’s event featured actor Jon Voight, Reps. Mike Pence, R-Ind., chairman of the House Republican Conference, Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., and Steve King, R-Iowa.


Here is a video from today's "Kill the Bill" Protest at the U.S. Capitol in Washington. It provides some of the sights and sounds of what happened there


Wild Thing's comment.........

Mike Pence is so good, he has been strong on so many things. He was also the person that lead the drill now.

After and during the rally, many of the patriots planned to visit their congressional representative and tell them what they think of the bill.

"Let Us In!" video below from the balcony in this picture.

Here is a video from the balcony of the Capitol they are yelling " Let Us In! "

Cheers for the Tea Party participants protesting.

After action report...

THIS report is from a friend that was there:Please read this report, it gave me goosebumps and tears, and it really tells how the rally went like no article in any paper would do.

The "Kill the Bill" rally/Tea Party started at 12 noon on the west side of the Capitol building. It actually got going about an hour earlier because so many Tea Partiers had shown up on Capitol Hill... some had been out there since 7am!

There were many speakers including Rep. Michele Bachmann (MN), Tom Price (GA), Joe Wilson (SC), Steve King (IA), Phil Gingrey (GA), Actor John Voight, Dr. Milton Wolf, Obama's second cousin who opposes ObamaCare, Amy Kremer, Tea Party Express, Jenny Beth Martin, Tea Party Patriots, and many more.

Once the rally ended around 2:30pm, the crowd walked across to the Rayburn and Cannon House buildings. The pic you see at the top of this thread was us "storming" the Rayburn building. Some Tea Partiers waited in line, and did get into Congressional offices, and others were standing on that balcony to get a good view of the thousands of protestors below, spilling onto the street and on the other side of the street, loudly chanting "Kill the Bill!" and imploring Nancy Pelosi to come outside. It was amazing to see this... everyone was REALLY ticked off.

The plan was to return to the West side of the Capitol at 5pm to encircle the Capitol building, as a symbolic "you are surrounded by We The People".

The crowd was told by one of the organizers that the permit obtained for that purpose did not allow for the crowd to be stationary, it had to keep moving. So we all began to move, and formed a moving circle around the Capitol. However, we all stopped on the plaza on the east side of the Capitol building (across from the Supreme Court) below the windows of the second-story office of Leader John Boehner, located between the two wings of the Capitol, the House and the Senate.

A couple of Boehner's young assistants had put up signs in his windows: VOTE NO and SCRAP THE BILL, much to the crowd's delight! About an hour later my husband saw two young men taking photos from the plaza of the windows. My husband asked if by chance they worked in that office and put the signs up. They said yes, and were thrilled at how visible the signs were.

There were people in Boehner's office waving to us. Steny Hoyer's office was below Boehner's on the first floor, apparently empty. The crowd broke into spontaneous chants of "Kill the Bill!" and "Nancy! Nancy!", "USA!", "You Work For Us!" and many other chants for about an hour and a half. A member of the Rules Committee (a Congressman from Indiana) came down the steps of the House and got up on a ladder to address the crowd. He was talking about the rules and other matters, and a small crowd gathered around him.

While he was speaking, the crowd continued to chant outside Boehner's windows. Between 6:30-7:00pm Congessman Steve King (R-IA) came down the House steps and began speaking to the crowd thru a bullhorn, firing up the crowd and explaining that on the third floor up above us the House Rules Committee was meeting and could hear our chanting and that we were bothering them... LOL. The crowd roared ever louder, egged on by Rep. Steve King (he is fantastic, by the way! He hung around after the first rally just talking and shooting the breeze with us and anyone who wanted to talk to him, or who wanted an autograph or photo).

Shortly after, several other Congressmen joined him on the steps: Poe from Texas, Tom McClintock of CA, Louie Gohmert of TX, Lynn Westmoreland of GA, Jean Schmidt of OH (who had just run her 81st marathon that day), two from Georgia, one a medical doctor, another from New Jersey... all were Republicans.

They were really thrilled at the numbers and intensity of the crowd. Each spoke for 10 minutes or more, interrupted time after time by cheers and chants from the crowd, disturbing the Rules Committee meeting inside. It was explained to us by a couple of the Congressmen the force and intensity of our presence earlier today may have helped to eliminate the "Deem and Pass" procedure. One of the Congressmen said he could hear us from inside the Rotunda, which, he said, was extraordinary. Another said he could hear us from his apartment, which was 4 blocks away from the Capitol.

We closed tonight's impromptu rally ("impromptu" because we didn't expect to hear from any Congressmen at this later rally) on the steps of the House in the dark (it was after 8pm) by saying The Lord's Prayer - yes, a PRAYER on the House steps!. We also said the Pledge of Allegiance and Rep. Steve King led us in singing "God Bless America".

Steve King told us that Congressmen (I think it may be mostly the Republicans) are having a prayer service with their families in the Capitol Rotunda tomorrow, Sunday, at 11am. He said this would be the first time a prayer service was held there in over 100 years.

He asked us to return to the House steps at the Capitol at 11am to pray outside, and to stay for the duration of the day, and continue our LOUD chants while members are inside getting ready to vote. He thinks the vote will take place around 2pm. He suggested our presence could possibly make a difference in tomorrow's crucial vote.

This protest not only against Health care, but huge government is building and building to the boiling point. Even if we lose this there will be a backlash, The likes, these snakes have never seen before. The more the back room deals come out about the bribes, kickbacks the bigger this movement grows. Worst of all, I think, is the lack of respect for the American People, and the virtual, saying to the People, screw you we are doing what we want.

I believe the backlash will be huge, it will be something we have never seen before and where it leads I have no idea but I think, if done right we get our country back.
