Nearly 100 Tea Party activists gathered at Representative Peter Visclosky’s Merrillville, IN, office to register their NO vote on H.R. 3200. The weather was perfect, cool and sunny, there were American flags and signs everywhere, and many passing motorists honked their support.
The protest was put together by Northwest Indiana Patriots. Members of that organization presented the Representative’s office with 125 letters signed by his constituents expressing their concern with the unprecedented growth of Federal government and it’s rapidly expanding debt, and their feeling that elected representatives are not connected with their constituents. NWIP also presented his office with a letter detailing concerns with the Kennedy healthcare reform bill in its current form, and urging him, and Congress, to thoroughly explore options and alternatives.
