Today thousands of grassroots activists from around the country will descend on the West Lawn of the Capitol to make a House Call to Congress’ back door. FreedomWorks is pleased to participate in this event taking place nearly two months after the historic gathering on the West Lawn on September 12. This event will build on the momentum gained in this week’s important elections, and will shift the focus to healthcare once again.
At 12pm, FreedomWorks activists will join with citizen activists of other organizations to support champions of reform and small government conservatism, and in opposition to the healthcare power grab currently occurring in Congress. Speakers at the West Lawn gathering will include Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), political commentator Mark Levin, and FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe.
After gathering on the West Lawn, activists will take the message directly to their Congressmen as they visit members’ offices. Armed with lists of undecided House members to target, the activists will voice their concerns to a Congress that until now hasn’t listened.
“Congress needs to start listening to the people when it comes to healthcare reform,” said Matt Kibbe, President of FreedomWorks. “The more people learn about the bill, the less they like it. Congress needs to focus on proposals that will lower costs and increase access, not those that increase the government’s role in the process.”
