DC: "Kill the Bill" Rally Draws Tens of Thousands!

"KILL THE BILL!"

That was the message that rang out from a giant crowd of 30,000 - 50,000 tea party activists who gathered in Washington, D.C. on Saturday for a last-minute protest against Congress's efforts to pass the Obama-Pelosi-Reid government-run healthcare plan.

Here's just a few pictures from the massive gathering. Realize that this rally was literally put together in 2-days time by a coalition of dozens upon dozens of local and national tea party organizations including the Tea Party Express:



We're going to watch and see what Congress does now. They've heard from the American people. The polls show the public opposes this attempt to have the government take over our nation's healthcare system. The phones have been tied up with people calling in to oppose the bill. Emails and letters and FAXes opposing the bill number well into the millions.

And we have gathered in front of the Capitol - the People's Capitol - several times now to make our message heard.

If they defy the American people, defy our Constitution, and push this bill through, then we will make sure they lose their seats in Congress. That is exactly what the "Tea Party Express III: Just Vote Them Out" national tour and the "Showdown in Searchlight" are all about.

Members of Congress: Should you choose to defy your boss - which is "We The People" - then expect that as a consequence you will be fired.

UPDATE: Kathryn Jean Lopez has some great crowd shots over at National Review - The Corner.

*Special thanks to Amy Kremer, Jennifer Hulsey and the TeaPartyExpress.tv team for helping make this effort so tremendously successful.

  1. I am thrilled so many were able to get to DC for this with just a couple days notice. Thank you to all who could go to try to represent those of us who are not getting representation from our elected officials.

  2. If there had been any way I could have been there, I would have. My husband and I were there in September, and it was an awesome experience. I can only hope that those representing us are watching and listening. Thank you to everyone who took their time and money to symbolize the heart of the real American people.

  7. What is happening to this once great country now is a travesty. The Democrat party is hell-bent on cramming down our throats a bill that "we the people" don't want. Yet this is the state of the nation now. Banks, insurance companies, wall street, tea parties, are all demonized and belittled and yes, punished by the liberal elitists who know what's good for us. Our only course, if this passes, is revolution. We did it once before with the British; we can do it again with the liberal Democrats. This is taxation without representation. REVOLUTION NOW.

  10. Tens of thousands? We didn't even get 1/25th of the people we had on 9/12. There must be 10 million people within easy driving distance of D.C. who oppose this bill, and they all had something better to do. I'm disappointed. The wife and I went, but whatever hope I had that conservatives/Republicans/liberatarians were galvanizing and getting active in politics on 9/12 has been shaken.

  11. I could not make it to DC, but I have logged over 100 phone call attempts to these knuckleheads in congress. I got through once and pelosi's voicemail box was full. I also emailed ever single one of the "fence sitters" with this message:

    How do you know when it is truly tyranny.....? When your government stops listening to you.

    Over 71% of the United States of America say NO, or HELL No! Why are you not listening?

  12. A Congress of career politicians will NEVER allow us to constitutionally term limit them by an amendment. But... WE CAN IMPOSE term limits on them in Congressional elections (‘2010, 2012, 2014......):

    1. Never reelect your Congressman or Senator.
    2. Always vote, but only for the strongest challenger , regardless of party .

    If Congress has not passed a term limits bill by 2014, repeat this in 2016, 2018....

    Our only intelligent choice is to NEVER REELECT anyone in Congress!

    The only infallible, unstoppable, guaranteed way to get a truly new Congress, AND a new politics, is NEVER REELECT ANY INCUMBENT! DO IT EVERY ELECTION until term limits is ratified. In other words, don't let anyone serve more than one term until Congress passes a term limits bill!

    NEVER REELECT ANYONE IN CONGRESS. DO IT EVERY ELECTION! ... until we ratify term limits.

  16. I want to thank those who attended this event. I wished that I could have done so. however I am doing what I can on the other coast. Calling my elected officials and sending emails as well as blogging and sending letters to the editors of local news papers. The reason taht America is in such dire straites is not the corrupt politicians fault, but rather ours, the American people, for not participating in our government as we were afforded by our founding fathers. By taking freedom and the American way for granted and not understanding that it is our duty to make our voices heard and our wishes known. So America, today, not tomarrow we must all get off our duffs and become active in our future because if we do not utilize the rights that we have, as the saying goes. . . . you either use it or lose it! ! !

  17. this is one of the biggest FRAUDS against the american people i have EVER seen,.... REMEMBER. ALL four forms of Gov medicine are FAILURES and have run out of MONEY... what OB is doing is pretending that you can solve by covering everyone.. DOes anyone remember in the run up to nov election an Indian reservation lady was interviewin OB and she said how sad it was for the Reservations that they had NO health care clinics, hospitals or DOcs.. DUH! that IS gov medicine...

    Medicare was last glamour one that , as predicted by insurance commission when passed in 1965 ran out of money in 1990.. so FEAST to FAMINE is the norm in gov disasters.. thanks for being there.. guys.. i saw fox present you at excercise tv but not cnn in two hours .. they just kept repeating OBs lies.. Docs are preparing to retire early and do some other work and young docs are leaving the field 5 years out of residency.. BRAIN DRAIN will cont if we do no get back to Supply and Demand and REAL disaster health care insurance and not welfare. benefits to those who refuse to work... Doctor K

  31. If you like your doctor that you presently have, that will end with the new health care plan.There will be a limited amount of doctors per town. Your doctor might not be allowed to practice in present location.It will be the beginning of the end. Our country will no longer be the greatest country in the world. I am preaching to the choir if you are reading this so spread the word to others and remember do not re-elect incumbents come November. Email your county and state elected officials now and remind them who elects them. They are here for us...the "People"..Thank you to all who care!!!

  32. Why would they continue to push this unconstitutional health insurance bill against such massive public opposition? Because liberalism is a mental disorder, and a blue dog is just another liberal who thinks he can fool the public. Take Baron Hill (D-IN). He voted for cap and trade, the porkculus, and this monstrosity. I spoke with his idiot staffer in Bloomington yesterday. He tried to tell me that Hill was a deficit hawk. I gave it to him with both barrels. I hope you Tea Party folks from southern Indiana send him packing in November. The man is a first-class fraud.

  33. Take a look at this and just remember elections in November 2010.

    U..S. House & Senate have voted themselves $4,700 and $5,300 raises.

    They voted to NOT give you a S.S. Cost of living raise in 2010 and 2011.
    Your Medicare premiums will go up $285.60 for the 2-years
    You will not get the 3% COLA: $660/yr.
    Your total 2-yr loss and cost is -$1,600 or -$3,200 for husband and wife.
    Over these same 2-years each Congress person will get $10,000
    Do you feel SCREWED?
    Will they have your cost of drugs - doctor fees - local taxes - food, etc., decrease?
    NO WAY.


    Congress received a raise and has better health and retirement benefits than you or I.

    Why should they care about you?
    You never did anything about it in the past.
    You obviously are too stupid or don't care.
    Do you really think that Nancy, Harry, Chris, Charlie, Barnie, et al, care about you?
    Send the message to these individuals --- "YOU'RE FIRED!"

    In 2010 you will have a chance to get rid of the sitting Congress: up to 1/3 of the Senate and 100% of the House!

    Make sure you're still mad in November 2010 and remind their replacements not to screw-up.

    It is ok to forward this to your sphere of influence if you are finally tired of the abuse. Maybe it's time for Amendment 28 to the Constitution..

    28th Amendment will be as follows:

    "Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators or Representatives, and Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ."



    Let's get this passed around, folks - these people in Washington have brought this upon themselves! It's time for retribution. Let's take back America ...

  34. I was in Washington, D.C. in mind and spirit. To make up for the fact that I couldnt go, I have painted 14 4ft x 2 ft signs that have been posted in my front yard for the past couple of weeks, and until they come to take something from my cold dead hands I will continue doing so. Oh and by the way approx. 10 to 15 thousand cars pass my house each day and 99% of them blow the horn and give a thumbs up and I have even had several hundred stop to say hello and thanks for taking a stand.

    I SMELL AN IMPENDING IMPEACHMENT OR THE SECOND AMERICAN REVOLUTION OR MAYBE EVEN BOTH COMING REAL SOON!

  39. We just got back from the KILL THE BILL rally. What a great crowd. Afterward we went into house chambers to urge a few PA legislators to KILL THE BILL. Most were unavailable but we talked to their staffs. We see our own rep. R. Bill Shuster 9th dist. PA, whom we bumped into in the hallway and talked with for some time. He's a safe NO on this bill. We thanked him and others who we learned were also going to vote no and left messages for the rest. I even managed to shake hands with John Voigt and thank him for his support and good work he's done on behalf of our nation and our cause. I don’t know if we made a difference or not but we’re not giving up without a fight. And if they want to push –we’ll push back twice as hard. LOL at Obama.

  40. I would not put it past the current administration and congress to find some pretext to declare martial law and cancel the upcoming Nov elections,why else would they seem not to fear the consequences of their current attitude of "we do not care what the American people think,or want"?.

  42. Maybe they don't care if they are voted out? They will still get their same paycheck and benefits, and can go golfing and playing on the beach everyday - it will be like early retirement. Does not sound like something to be afraid of to me - there needs to be a MUCH bigger consequence for this criminal bunch!!!

    remind them that PRESIDENT JOHNSON ALSO LIED TO CONGRES and got Medicare passed on 1/5 of what the Insurance commission KNEW it would cost for medicare to be ACTUARILY SOUND ( LAST FOREVER)... so as predicted by the insurance commission, medicare ran out of money..

    and the REASON YOUR INSURANCE PREMIUMS ARE SKYROCKETING IS THAT the cost of all the failed gov med programs is being shifted to private insurance.. thousands of your premium dollars really are dollars for medicare , medicaid and va.. last decade the corrupt gov allowed the va to BILL medicare and run it down even MORE>.! we NEED TO GRADUALLY TRANSITION THE ELDERLY OFF THIS MESS so they can have rights.. BELIEVE me , THE DEMS In control will DENY HEALTHCARE TOANY AMERICAN WHO DIsagrees.. LOOKK what King CHUCK and OB did to COngressman MASSA when he (d) DARED TO VOTE against cap and trade and health care as his conscience.. imagine what those other dems who are even considering not voting for OB are up against .. the CHICAGO LEGAL MAFIA......................... certainly not AMERICAN REPUBLIC>.

  58. Of course this is preaching to the choir, but just the same, the one who pays the bill names the rules. Here's what we can expect: ban on all smoking, drinking, meat, sugar, milk, cars not getting 40 mpg, excess fat-tax, tax credit for gym membership, human age limit, one-child rule/law/policy, license to have children, diet restrictions, no ice cream, etc. Just wait... The book to read if you can get a used copy is, "Ominous Parallels," by Leonard Piekioff. And don't forget to register and vote Libertarian asap. Passing this bill could be the worst thing to happen to those who vote for it. Remember the nationwide reaction to the Supreme Court decision on taking private property for private use? And by the way, how can we be the richest nation on earth if we have to borrow money to pay the interest on the money we have already borowed? I think we are BK. Thanks, Roy

By the way did you know that Wal mart is stopping taking prescriptions for people on medicare because the govt. is not paying them. The govt needs the money apparently. Are they realy going to save this. Doctors cannot keep taking medicare. Some are canceling apointments of those on medicare and not taking apointment.s Where does this leave elderly that have worked their lives and widows who depend on medicare. What about nursing homes for patients who are on medicare. Everything they have done has put more and more people out of work. We need honest statemen with integrity in the government. Vote their conscience yes they made an oath to uphold the constition that is what their conscience vote should be.

  87. I have programmed all of their local and DC fax numbers into my computer and send my personal message to each and every one. Have been sending twice a day with a different message every time. Today 49% were recorded as busy numbers. You all are doing the job. Thanks for being in DC today. I was there in September and overwhelmed with the support and experience. Go, Go.

  88. Thank you to one and all who made the sacrifice to be there today. God bless you a hundredfold from His storehouse without end.
    As our forefathers modeled before us, let us NOT lean unto our own understanding in this battle, but in all our ways acknowldge the one and only true God (the God of the Bible and His son Jesus)in all our ways.
    I am grateful Lord for what you have given to us in the United States of America, but a Republic can only stand when the citizens of it are self-governing in submission to God and His laws, which lead to true freedom.
    If a man or woman live by the Spirit of God, they are a law unto themselves, but when we come apart from God and live in our own sinful nature, deciding for ourselves what is good and evil, there will be many laws to control the people.
    We must honor Israel as the apple of God's eye. He never slumbers or sleeps as He watches over Israel. God entered into covenant with Israel and He will fulfill it for HIS namesake. He will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel.
    Lord, help us all to make the right choice.
    God blesses America when America blesses God.

  89. Endless thanks to all who attended. I'm stuck in liberal California and I was with you in spirit. If you want to know how desperate they are look at the outrageous claims by the Congressional Black Caucus is making that the crowd was chanting racial slurs at them. How pathetic! The know the end is near and they are reaching for a life line that isn't there! Ha!

  90. We know that the majority of Americans despise this bill. How amazing, since those who want welfare are also included in the polls. If it were only the taxpaying Americans (the productive part of our society) voting, I would not be surprised to see a majority of 80-90 percent against this illegal attempt at dictatorship. Obama, Pelosi, Reid and other liberals are pushing this down our throats. Admittedly, they have accomplished something. They have created the greatest division within our country since the Civil War. We are on the verge of bankruptcy and they want to force us to pay the cost of 32 million people who do not buy insurrance. I cannot afford my own health care let alone theirs.

  94. DAN-O says:

    Rational lovers of Liberty must want the Marxist-Leninist prez, and his Politburo to FAIL. However, just in case, herewith, 4 important dates:

    Thursday, July 4, 1776 - Our Declaration of Independence - stated principles for governance in Liberty

    Friday, September 7, 1787 - Our U.S. Constitution - Birth of the Most Free Nation in the History of Earth

    Thursday, December 15, 1791 - Our Bill of Rights - Notice to aspiring Tyrants: Hands Off!

    Sunday, March 21, 2010 - The day our United States of America was e x e c u t e d by Marxists and Fascists (elected stupidly by voters in an ill-educated welfare stare).

    Possibly, we can throw off obama's (apparent) dictatorship. Does anyone have a clue as to how the signatories to our Declaration, our Constitution, and our Bill of Rights might handle the problem? [ Please review those documents--especially the Declaration--and mull over the question at some length. ]

  95. Despicable weasels! And the head weasel is most despicable of all!

    More taxes, More spending, Cuts in Medicare to pay for illegals and welfare.

    17% more of our economy in the clutches of a Marxist-leninist S0n0faB1tch and his Marxist-Maoist-Fascist henchmen.

    My G0D! Did we go -- have we gone--insane? Don't Americans know what's happened in every Tyranny through history?

    Some Americans are eager -- EAGER -- to submit to this empty suited Marxist, Alinskyite, Chicago Thug.

    With the danger of offending Barry's ACORNista and islamoFascist supporters, I must quote Jesus Christ: "Forgive them, for they know not what they do."

  96. None of these bastards give a rats ass about protesters. They care about the special interests with the big bucks that fund their campaigns. I'll bet that they even let their phone message inbox get full and didn't bother to empty them so they wouldn't have to be annoyed by us. These condescending assholes really do look down on their constituents. I'm sure there might be an exception here or there, but I doubt it.

  103. Thank you, all of you that demonstrated.

    I've written the communists that represent me here in Maryland many times to vote against this bill, but it had as much effect as shouting at a hurricane. Hopefully your actions will sway a few sensible Democrats.

  104. Please add my video collage from yesterday's event. I was proud to attend the event on such a beautiful day to show Congress my objections to their contempt toward the American people. We were courteous, we were proud, we were all indefatigable in our desire to see our Government do the right thing....Fix what is broken, not brake what is working. Our Congress is about to consign it's citizenry to ruin! The grain stores have been opened, and the wheat will no longer harvest! God Bless and Keep the U.S.A. Please enjoy my video of the event.

  107. I have sent faxes,made phone calls, made donations to the various Conservative groups like Newsmax and have been listening to Conservative talk radio for many years so you can see how dedicated I am.

    I am in my 50's but do not consider myself 'an angry white man'


    I live in Maryland so going to this would have been a no brainer but I decided to use the pretty day to catch up on the tree cleanup from the Blizzard.

    Why do I say all this?

    I am throwing in the towel. They win, we lose. I am going to stop paying attention to politics until I vote in Novemeber,2010 and see what happens after that.

    There is no point in getting ourselves all upset over this bill or anything else that will come out of the White House because the will of the people does not matter anymore.
    Our country has become a Monarchy/Dictatorship or whatever you call it when those in power do whatever they want and totally ignore the wishes of the people as well as the supreme law of the United States .

  108. Now that our members of the U.S House Of Representatives have had a chance to sleep on their decision to vote Yes or No on this bill, just maybe they are having to deal with their conscience.
    Let us continue to PRAY, WRITE, CALL, FAX, and RALLY. They must be confronted by Americans that have hope for our Republic. It IS NOT OVER YET. We can still win this debate. We can still "Kill The Bill."

    This is the day that The Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. This is Sunday. This the day that we celebrate in the worship of our Lord Jesus Christ. Let us gather, fall down on our knees and praise and worship our king. Let us ask God to prick their hearts on this "HIS" day so that He would turn their hearts back toward preserving America's principles. Ask God to give us the victory on this day that belongs to Him.

    Perhaps God will send them a message, and give us victory. Then it will be our responsibility to give God the glory. We cannot give up, and we must continue to let those that are in Washington D,C hear our opposition to this government take over of 1/6 of our economy.

    What a day this would be if we could say that God gave us the victory over these tyrants on this day that is set apart to worship HIM. What would be even more historical is the fact that all eyes would be focused on the nations capital.

    All of our rights and freedoms come from Almighty God. Let's place our hope and trust in Him on this day as our elected officials move to vote on this legislation.

    Let us as Americans show our LOVE, and TRUST in God .

    Patriots: Pray for our nation today, and continue to push for a NO VOTE.

  109. Lunatic, You really must be! For crying out loud, we had a three day notice! The turn out was absolutely massive given that time frame. My husband and I went to 9/12, but we had many months to plan for that. And when I heard about this, it seemed impossible, my husband was unable to go because of his job, but he made the connections for me and got me on a bus Friday night (we live in Michigan). I certainly don't fault anyone who wanted to go but was unable. I do fault the majority of Americans who are still living in la la land, who know more about movies and American Idol than they know about the Constitution and what is happening to their country.

  110. PLEASE TAKE NOTE:
    CNN said there was a huge pro-Illegal Alien Demonstration to be held in D.C. "this weekend", meaning March 20th & 21st. Then they reported that illegals are showing up in buses to support their demonstration. The commentator then got an odd look on his face and off the cuff said, "Why would a bunch of illegals show up in buses?" He made further comments about its oddity. All I could think of was those were not illegals, but thugs to mingle into the Tea Party and cause problems. You know, the familiar Lefty tactic. Then I heard about the spitting and name calling on C-SPAN. I thought..I was right...THUGS, NOT Tea Party people. The Left went for the very things they've been accusing the Tea Party of: discrimination against Black people AND violent acts. Don't anyone think it was Tea Party People.
    Did anyone take down Bus License plate Numbers by any chance?

  111. "I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents...." --James Madison

    "If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the General Welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one, subject to particular exceptions." --James Madison, Letter to Edmund Pendleton, January 21, 1792 (Madison 1865, I, page 546)

    Congress critters and the courts don't seem to recognize why the founders demanded limited government and this has allowed government to far exceed the limited enumerated powers granted by the Constitution.

  115. Are we headed toward a dictatorship? We are if we don't do something to get all these left wing liberals out of office. The health reform bill is only the beginning - tax and trade, immigration bill to give illegals citizenship, etc. etc. will follow. We have to turn this tide in the next election but the dems will already have many of their devastating bills in place by then.

  116. OK, who was it that shouted "the N-word" 15 times at two black representatives today? Were they Minutemen dressed in Indian costume or liberals dressed in teaparty costume? AP is "giddy" over having the liberal's favorite intimidation threat to paint the Tea Party with, that is obvious, but were they our people? If not I hope someone got a picture of them.

  118. Congressional Democrats have "VOTES FOR SALE" and sold their votes for "OBAMACARE-NIGHTMARE". We will continue to fight Washington and eradicate the OBAMA MAFIA from our government.

It is 30 feet, has a queen bed and a glass shower. It will be parked and hooked up in front of my home. It will be $700 for Friday-Monday.

  125. I am independent and not on board with the repeal language. The tparty would be better served to discuss the strategy and tactics of changing the parts of the health bill that infringe on individual liberty, increase federal, state, and retail taxes, decrease my choices in health care, and limit my choices to obtain a student loan. The repeal language by the tparty is the same level of fluff that the Dems use by saying that the health care bill is landslide legislation for the country. Not my country.

  126. Many here talk about the evil of the government. But the real evil is the insurance companies who dropped policies from the seriously ill, denied coverage to those who needed it most and priced policies out reach for millions of Americans.

    Several studies estimate the number of people who died from the lack of health insurance at 30,000 to 40,000 each year. We have met the dealth panels, they are the corporate boards for the health insurance industry.
