17 Mar 2010 Tea Party Video and Pictures from March 16 U.S. Capitol Code Red Rally
National Center Executive Director David Almasi and other National Center staffers loaded up petitions for delivery to Congress at Tuesday’s Tea Party Express “Code Red” rally against ObamaCare.
The National Center delivered about 700 pounds of signed petitions (about 30,000) opposing any form of socialized medicine. Some petitions also expressed opposition to President Obama’s plan to eliminate the popular Medicare Advantage option from the Medicare program. The petitions were accepted by Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN).
National Center-affiliated activists were busy outside of Washington, too. Project 21 member Emery McClendon helped organize several tea party rallies in Indiana, including in the state capital of Indianapolis. Project 21 chairman Mychal Massie, who was in Plymouth, Michigan on Sunday and Monday speaking to the “Rattle With Us” grassroots organization, attended a tea party in Easton, Pennsylvania.
Here are some photos from the petition delivery and rally:
