WHAT: FreedomWorks staff and allies will be paying a visit to the Capitol Hill offices of Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Harry Reid to deliver a petition with over 80,000 signatures urging Congress to “End Obamacare Now.” The petition is expected to cross 100,000 signatures by the time of delivery.
WHEN: Friday, March 23, 2012. FreedomWorks will arrive outside the office of Senator Reid at 11am ET.
WHERE: The drop-off will begin at the office of Sen. Harry Reid, 522 Hart Senate Office Building, Washington, DC 20510. It will end at the office of Rep. Nancy Pelosi, 235 Cannon HOB, Washington, D.C. 20515.
WHY: Friday marks the two year anniversary of the passage of Obamacare. On March 26th, the Supreme Court’s will begin hearing oral arguments over the constitutionality of the individual mandate.
FreedomWorks believes President Obama’s individual mandate is an unprecedented and unconstitutional infringement on liberty that will kill jobs and drive up the cost of health care for families nationwide. The bill’s IPAB health care rationing board (aka the “death panel”) appoints unelected federal bureaucrats to in effect, ration Medicare funds with almost no review or opportunity for override by Congress.
FreedomWorks and its network of over 1.6 million activists believe in a patient-centered approach to health care that would the system up to competition across state lines, and provide market incentives for the best quality care at the lowest cost to the patient without unconstitutional mandates made by an over-reaching government.
