Cincinnati 9/12 Project and Cincinnati Tea Party Fight Endgame with Parallel Events in Cincinnati OH and Washington DC
Cincinnati, OH, March 19, 2010. The U.S. House of Representatives will remain in session and in debate this weekend in order to change House Rules and force a vote on the Federal Healthcare Takeover Bill; a bill that the Citizens of the United States are solidly against. The Cincinnati 9/12 Project and The Cincinnati Tea Party will be holding parallel events in Cincinnati OH and Washington DC on Saturday, March 20. The members in Washington will join thousands of citizens from around the nation in demonstrating their opposition to a bill which assaults the core values of both groups.
Those in Washington will visit their elected officials, watch proceedings from the house gallery, and join rallies throughout the day. The 9/12 project and tea party groups will join together for a candlelight vigil on Saturday evening. For those not able to make the trip to Washington, a candlelight vigil will be held on the sidewalks outside of the District Office of Congressman Steve Driehaus, located in the Carew Tower office building on Fifth and Vine Streets. Candles will be made available to those who wish to join in the vigil. The Cincinnati rally will commence at 7:30 p.m. and the candlelight vigil will begin at dusk.
Congressman Driehaus has expressed a desire to pass the health care bill currently being considered, but has been opposed to the provision that would provide government funding for abortion. In the final days of this historic battle citizens from across the country have inundated the offices of uncommitted Representatives with emails, phone calls, letters and personal visits expressing their opposition. Over the past year The Cincinnati 9/12 project and the Cincinnati Tea Party have organized numerous rallies and events to voice opposition to government run health care and believe that this bill, once enacted, will prove virtually impossible to repeal.
About the Cincinnati 9/12 Project
The Cincinnati 9/12 Project’s mission is to take back our country by shifting power from Washington politicians to the people whom they represent. The intent is to restore the balance of power among municipalities, states, and the federal government as originally envisioned by our Founding Fathers and as originally captured in the Constitution.
The organization was founded in February 2009 as part of a national initiative to unite all Americans─regardless of political orientation─in pursuing events and actions that drive our politicians to follow Constitutional principles and values.
About the Cincinnati Tea Party
The Cincinnati Tea Party is a grassroots, nonpartisan organization promoting core values of limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets, while strongly opposing wasteful government spending at all levels. We encourage our members to actively participate in government by supporting candidates who share our goals and core values, or by running for office. Our goals include influencing elections to protect the freedom of current and future American citizens, promoting state sovereignty (Federalism), and compelling our elected officials to comply with the Constitution of the United States of America as written. To accomplish our goals, the Cincinnati Tea Party:
· Encourages Americans who value the liberty we enjoy to Voice their opinions through rallies,
forums, and town halls.
· Supports the Education of Americans for a better understanding of our Declaration of Independence,
our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, and the authority granted to our government by the People.
· Impacts Elections throughout America by encouraging freedom-loving American citizens to run for
office at the local, county, and state levels.
The Cincinnati Tea Party was founded in February 2009 by a conservative group of Cincinnatians who love our country and want to pass its gift of freedom along to our children. In April 2009, Community Tea Parties were launched to allow local leaders to spread the core values at the neighborhood level.
