Tax Cut Rally Revved by CCHC President

Reminding the crowd that the most powerful word in the English language is "NO," Twila Brase, CCHC president, had the crowd practice the word before she gave them the opportunity to say "NO" to pending health care reform bill (H.F. 3391)and the DNA Warehouse bill (HF3438/SF3138).

The crowd said a resounding "NO" to:
"Fat scores" on children (no child left unweighed)
Medical welfare for the middle class
Electronic tracking of patients and doctors, and restricted access to medical care by a proposed $12 Million Super Agency (H.C. Transformation Commission)
Taxes on "make believe health care savings"
$100 million to monitor lifestyle and attempt to enforce healthy habits
$250 million of a tax on patients to balance the budget

DNA Warehouse on all citizens, starting at birthAlso speaking were U.S. Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and Congressman John Kline. Also there was Minority Leader Marty Seifert, Taxpayers League Phil Krinkie and Jeff Davis from Minnesota Majority. KTLK radio's Chris Baker emceed the event and KTLK's Dan Conry introduced the ever-popular Jason Lewis.

It was a wild day for the rally. Snowflakes fell and the wind blew, but the sound system was great and thousands showed up! Ignore the Star Tribune's report of only "1000 attendees." Clearly the reporter doesn't know how to count! There were at least 3,000-4,000 people. Others estimate 6,000 people. CCHC thanks everyone who came...and stood against big government and big brother proposal with that resounding, "NO, NO, NO!"
