Politico has coverage

(…)When she took the microphone, Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-Ohio) pointed to the three House office buildings across Independence Avenue from the rally.  “I invite you, when the rally’s over, to travel in those halls, look at the walls, find your (member) and walk in,” she said. “Let them know how you feel about this bill.”

Within an hour, activists were lined up down Independence Avenue to go through the magnetometers in the lobby of the Rayburn Office Building so they could confront members and staff. Bachman told them to each take a page – or a piece of a page – from one of two copies of the bill at the podium and ask a member to explain the text to them.

Bachmann’s office and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s district office were surrounded by the Tea Partiers shortly after the rally ended, and the floor outside Pelosi’s office was covered in pages of the bill…

PriceWaterhouseCooper released an independent study of the Senate Finance Committee version of the government takeover of health care bill.  The study showed that American family’s budgets will be severely impacted by the bill and that health insurance premiums will increase dramatically.  You may wish to read the study and use this as supporting documentation when you contact the Senators.  Additionally, you may find some these resources helpful as well:

ElRushbo 11/2/09:

…Phone calls and e-mails to members of Congress, it is said, are not having the impact they once did. Because Washington is being flooded with phone calls and e-mails against health care, and it’s not making a smidgeon’s bit of difference, according to Michele Bachmann and others.  The Democrats are so committed on this that they don’t care what anybody thinks.  Now, Michele Bachmann told me in an e-mail that if they had to vote on this today, it would lose.

But they plan on voting Friday, and by then, Pelosi might have enough time to buy enough votes, however she’s going to do it, from Democrats who are sitting on the fence or who are confirmed “no” votes. So this is a pretty ambitious plan. They are trying to assemble a massive, massive “human house call,” they’re calling it — a giant rally as it were on the steps of the capitol this Thursday.  They want people to go to Washington and actually prowl the halls of all the different congressional office buildings, run into members of Congress and look ’em in the white of their eyes and say, “No. We don’t want this.”  She believes that it’s going to take personal contact and a lot of human beings, a lot of people in Washington to convey the message; because on this issue, e-mails and phone calls and factions and letters are having no impact.

Now, she’s got Jon Voight. There are going to be some people speaking at this thing she’s got Jon Voight there and Mark Levin is going to show up and so forth.  Her note to me says this… “Insurgency in Congress” is the subject line.  “We’re asking the American people to make an emergency house call on Congress at noon on the capitol steps Thursday to remind Congress what the people said at town hall and tea parties last August.

If real freedom-loving Americans come to Washington and walk up and down the halls of the office buildings and the capitol tracking down congressmen, looking them in the whites of their eyes and getting them on videotape, then I think we can kill this thing.  If we can kill health care this week in the House, I think we will kill it for the next ten years.  We have Jon Voight and Mark Levin confirmed, also Betsy McCaughey.”We’ll have a meet-up at the Capitol steps and then the insurgency begins.  It’s a big task, but it’s the best way to really kill the bill, which is our goal.  Your support in any manner could make all the difference.  Thank you, Michele Bachmann.”  Now, imagine if they pull that off.  That would be huge.  That would be huge.

Rush transcript continued:
So I told her I… (interruption) Well, no, I’m not going. (interruption)  Pardon? (interruption)  Well, I have scheduling conflicts, but I’ve also got other reasons.  But regardless, this is interesting.  They’re going to be pushing this and I’m sure I am not the only talk show host will be talking it up.  But people have been asking, what they can do.  Everybody asks me, “What can we do?  How can we stop this?”  This is the latest plan that the Republicans, that Michele Bachmann has come up with.  And this is a very, very ambitious thing.  So as I learn more about this, as the week unfolds, I’ll pass it on to you.  ‘Cause I’ll guarantee you, Sarah Palin… You know, Joe Biden’s making fun of Sarah Palin and laughing at her.  Sarah Palin could not keep a crowd under 10,000 if she shows up anywhere. If she shows up anywhere it’s 10 to 15 to 20,000, maybe more.  Biden can’t get any more than 200 people in Watertown, New York.  Who is laughing at who?  Or who should be laughing at who?

    Yes, I do believe those we have sent to Washington are, collectively, are arrogant and surely dumb enough to still ignore the American people and try to pass this bill—–still dumb enough after yesterday. I will be in Washington on Thursday. Join me.
