Bachmann to speak at Minnesota Capitol rally against health care bill
March 9, 2010 — 9:34am
U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, one of the most vocal critics of President Obama's proposed health care overhaul, will be a featured speaker at a rally at the Minnesota Capitol against the legislation.
The conservative group Minnesota Majority will hold the rally at 12 p.m. Saturday at the Capitol, five days before Congress is expected to vote on Obama's proposed health care plan.
"Even though every major poll clearly shows that a supermajority of the American people oppose the current health care ‘reform’ bill, Nancy Pelosi is planning to jam the bill through Congress," a news release stated. "If you care about preserving your right to make health care decisions for you and your family, please be sure to come to Saturday’s rally. Bring a sign demonstrating your opposition to the bill."
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
