***Saturday June 13th at Washington Park behind Ft. Collins City Hall***
***Rally to encourage Betsy Markey to vote against socialized single-payer health care this summer***
Does this picture terrify you? Well, if it does, consider yourself invited to the Ft. Collins Tea Party’s rally this weekend to encourage Congresswoman Betsy Markey to vote against the promised Obama Health Care Plan. It will begin at Noon on Saturday June 13th at Washington Park behind the Fort Collins City Hall building.
Citizens in Colorado’s 4th Congressional district don’t approve of President Obama’s announced proposal for a socialist government-owned health care system, local organizers say.
Fort Collins Tea Party co-organizer Ray Harvey said if Markey supports Obama’s proposal to increase the federal government’s control of medical care, “it will result ultimately in rationing health care for our senior citizens, and also in long delays in receiving treatment that will threaten our own lives and the lives of our family members.”
“Doctors and patients,” Harvey continued, “who practice and live in socialized health care systems throughout the world, such as Canada, can always flee to the United States, and they do. If Betsy Markey votes to let the Obama Administration take control of our system and do away with our freedom of choice here, where do we flee? Answer: nowhere.”
The Obama Administration has announced its plan to push its disastrous policy through by the end of this summer. According to CNS NEWS, “Senior White House Adviser David Axelrod said on CBS’s Face the Nation (Sunday) that President Obama intends to promote a health-care reform plan that will include creating a government-owned health-care company and predicted that Congress will enact such a plan by the end of the summer.”
Harvey explained that Tea Party activists will respond this summer by pressuring Rep. Betsy Markey to vote against government-controlled health care “over the phone, by mail, at her district offices, or on her front doorstep, if necessary, starting this Saturday.”
There you have it Northern Colorado. If you think your health care choices should involve just you and your doctor – without any government bureaucrat interference – then grab your signs (like Michigan and North Carolina) and head out to Washington Park to let YOUR representative, Betsy Markey know that to represent YOU she has to vote against President Obama’s socialist government-owned health care system.
