Republican Lawmakers Encourage Health Care Protests at Planned Town Halls


Awesome idea. With PelosiCare only passing by a very slim margin, every vote counts and we need to flood our Senators inboxes and phone lines with our message. You work for us and you were voted into office to do the will of the American people. We will be more than happy to welcome you back into the private sector and hire someone who will do the job.

Republican lawmakers are hoping to re-ignite the town hall fury that inflamed the health care debate and nearly derailed the legislation over the summer.

GOP representatives are holding town halls in the next two weeks to rally opposition to President Obama’s sweeping health care legislation that narrowly passed the House last weekend. A different version of the bill is now wending its way through the Senate.

“The legislative battle over health care reform is not over,” Indiana Rep. Mike Pence, chairman of the House Republican Conference, wrote in a letter to members ahead of the Veterans Day break. Pence urged them to keep reaching out to constituents and host town hall meetings to highlight ways Republicans say the bill will hurt seniors, women and small businesses.

“We must continue to oppose the Pelosi health care bill and stand by the American people in support of Republican-offered solutions that meet the needs of families by lowering health care costs,” he said, referring to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who shepherded the bill to passage.

House Republicans have scheduled several town hall meetings and Senate Republicans have planned at least 50 in the next two weeks, including one  Thursday night to be hosted by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
