Tea Party Patriots descended on the capitol for a “Code Red” rally against the government run healthcare bill(s) in Congress. Michelle Bachman received a rock star welcome and told the crowd to send a message to Congress. “We are citizens of the United States…We expect you to maintain our freedom”, Bachman said. Bachman also encouraged everyone in the crowd to ask their Senators and Congressman to tell them where in the constitution does it allow them to mandate American citizens to purchase a service or product against their will.
That’s a great question. As you may recall, I asked Senator Durbin that same question. The answer I received was par for the course from the number two ranking Democrat in the U.S. Senate. Durbin, Pelosi, Reid and the rest of the statists in Congress don’t have an answer to that question.
Watch the video above to see Bachman’s remarks, followed by a speech from Laura Ingraham.
Bachman urged Congress to do the right thing, stating “The right thing is always conformity with the Constitution of the United States”. As usual, Bachman is right.
The tea parties have had to make a lot of visits to Washington lately. Maybe the time has come for us to never leave.
