We had about 40 people show up, which while totally outnumbered, is still awesome on such short notice and horrible advertising on my part!
Thank you to everyone that battled the RIDICULOUS traffic downtown today to stand up for our side. I heard that one person got hit over the head with a sign from a wandering Obot. The police escorted the Obot back to the other side of the street. Luckily, everyone still has all of their digits! You never know with those crazy mobs... of Obots!!!
Again, thanks you guys! You made me PROUD!!
Now. We must steer the public debate and media towards these other bills that have been introduced. Every rally you go to, every conversation you have, every tweet you post, every status update you make needs to start focusing on these other bills. Here they are again:
Coercion is Not Health Care Act, HR 2629
Comprehensive Health Care Reform Act, HR 1495
Patients' Choice Act, HR 2520 (Go here or here for the actual text and here for the summary.)
Empowering Patients First, HR 3400
Health Care Freedom Act, S. 1324 (Go here for the actual text and here for a summary.)
Now, I haven't read through all of them yet, but they are ALTERNATIVES and this is what we need right now. We need people to start going through these bills and their summaries in order to become familiar with their proposals. So when an Obot throws something like, "status quo" or "against reform" or "you have no ideas," you can say, aha! Yes I do. Get these bill numbers and names OUT THERE!!!
