FreedomWorks delivered 120,000 signatures to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi’s offices on Friday. They loaded the petitions on desks in their offices – then left.
Wouldn’t you love to be a fly on the wall when Pelosi walked in on this?
FreedomWorks described the operation.
On the two-year anniversary of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, about 20 FreedomWorks staff and allies paid a visit to the Capitol Hill offices of Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Harry Reid to deliver a petition with over 120,000 signatures urging Congress to “End Obamacare Now.”
“We presented House and Senate leadership with a stack of signatures even taller their massive 2,801-page health care law,” commented Dean Clancy, Vice President of Health Care Policy at FreedomWorks.
“Reid and Pelosi’s offices didn’t welcome us, but with all those signatures they heard our message loud and clear: repeal this unpopular law now.”
A recent Gallup poll revealed that 72 percent of Americans believe the individual mandate is unconstitutional. FreedomWorks has been working for years to spread the message that 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 also contains an unethical IPAB health care rationing board, which appoints unelected federal bureaucrats to in effect, ration Medicare funds with almost no review or opportunity for override by Congress.
If there were any justice in this world, Pelosi would be forced to eat each and every one of those petitions.
