Despite the historic repudiation of rampant government expansion and control of our lives last week, statists still control Congress in big numbers until January. Just like a good crisis, don’t think they want this time go to waste. After all, they have nothing to lose anymore. The risk of an unbridled spending and government takeover spree is possible during the upcoming “lame duck” session of Congress.
To help send a loud and clear “no new government” message to these lame-duck politicians, Americans For Prosperity is organizing a rally on Capitol Hill in Washington at noon on Monday, November 15, with U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann (see John J. Miller at National Review’s The Corner blog), AFP President Tim Phillips (see ABCNews.com’s The Note blog) and others. But the message isn’t only for the old Congress. Consider it a heads up to the new one, as well. If, during the fall, we told them “November is coming,” now we tell them, “November speaks!”
The AFP Virginia chapter is sponsoring free bus rides for people who want to attend. Click here by tomorrow at 5:00 p.m. to register for the bus leaving from an area near you, or to get more information about the rally. Seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
