First, I'd like to thank each of you for posting and/or attending the protests last week @ Altmire's offices.
We had a great turn-out (over 200 people!) and, as always, it was awesome to stand shoulder to shoulder with so many wonderful people!
I'm saddened to say that we'll have to do this again - rally @ Altmire's office to finally stop this bill. Below I've written a description of the event etc., could you please post to your members? I realize that some of you are not in our area, but this vote will affect all Americans & we need help from all of your members - we cannot do this alone!!
FYI- we're working with AFP and a communications firm to promote this event and generate maximum turn-out. The AFL-CIO is planning their own protests next week (Tue - Aliquippa 12-1 and Wed.- Natrona 12-1) and they've sited our protests as reason for their members to come out! So - we need to outnumber them!
Thank you all for everything you do!!
** TUESDAY IS THE DAY TO TELL ALTMIRE "NO" **
We need your help one more time to push Altmire to vote "NO" on the Health Care Bill !!
Where: Altmire's Aliquippa Office
2110 McLean St.
Aliquippa PA 15001 http://www.mapquest.com/maps?city=Aliquippa&state=PA&address=2110+McLean+St&zipcode=15001-2964&country=US&latitude=40.603317&longitude=-80.276884&geocode=ADDRESS
When: TUESDAY 16th 4-6pm
We had 4 incredible rallies last week at 2 of Altmire's offices - but it wasn't enough.
The latest reports are that he is still undecided and leaning towards a "YES" vote!
This protest is for everyone who is opposed to the Health Care Bill. We are consolidating last week's rallies into one and we want hundreds of people to come out to make a huge statement!
If you have to, please come directly from work even if you can only be there for the last half hour. We know this is a bad time and we know this is quite a distance for some. However, the alternative to being inconvenienced for one day is worse..SOCIALIZED MEDICINE AND A NEW UNITED SOCIALIST STATES OF AMERICA!
THIS IS A 5-ALARM FIRE! Time to stand up! Time to speak out! Time to be a patriot!
