The health care debate in Washington has been heated for months, but on Thursday it might get downright ugly.

Rep. Michele Bachmann wants opponents of the Democratic health care proposal to join her on Thursday as she walks through the halls of Congress confronting representatives about their position on the bill.

What time? "High noon," she told Sean Hannity on Friday.

"I've never done this before, but I'm asking people to come to Washington, D.C., by the car load," Bachmann said. "And next Thursday at noon, I'll be at a press conference on the steps of the Capitol. I'd love to have every one of your viewers join me so that we can go up and down through the halls, find members of Congress, look at the whites of their eyes and say, 'Don't take away my health care.' "

She later added, "we can walk together through Cannon, Longworth, Rayburn, walk through the Capitol, sit in the gallery." 

As though the legislative "house call" -- as Bachmann and others have dubbed it -- needed further stoking, she spiced it up in an e-mail to supporters. "Jon Voight will be there! Will you?"

Other congressman slated to speak at the press conference include Tom Price of Georgia, Michael Burgess of Texas, Scott Garret of New Jersey and Steve King of Iowa.
