If The Dems Make A Health Care Bill, Will The Tea-Partiers Come?

ZUMA Press/Newscom

Today is a big day on Capitol Hill, featuring the rollout of the House Democrats’ health care bill — and possibly a Tea Party protest against it.

An e-mail was sent out last night on the Tea Party Patriots e-mail list, asking anyone within driving distance of Washington to head to the Capitol at 10 a.m., the scheduled time for the unveiling of the House health care bill.

The event has also been described in conservative Twitter-land, including Erick Erickson, as a “flash mob.”

So will a bunch of people show up? Let’s see what happens.

Check out the full e-mail after the jump.

If You Are in Driving Distance of DC Tomorrow
Dear Fellow Tea Party Patriot,
According to Politico, tomorrow, Thursday, October 29 at 10:00 am, the Democrats in the House plan to unveil the House Health Care Legislation. If you are within driving distance of DC and are able to attend with signs in opposition to government takeover of health care, we encourage you to do so.

Remember on the action list sent earlier today, tomorrow’s action items are to call your own Congressman plus the Blue Dogs in the House. Be sure to do this so it coincides with the bill unveiling tomorrow.

Please forgive the extra email in your inboxes today. Since we are doing all we can to leave no stone unturned, we felt it was necessary to send an extra email today so those who can protest tomorrow are able to do so.

You are the heart and soul of the Tea Party Movement. Thank you for promoting the causes of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets with us!

Your Tea Party Patriots National Coordinator Team,
Debbie Dooley, Mike Gaske, Kellen Giuda, Ryan Hecker, Jenny Beth Martin, Mark Meckler, Sally Oljar, Diana Reimer, Billie Tucker, and Dawn Wildman
