State and local activists are rallying against the Democrat’s health care reform plan, and Ron Parks is organizer of the event in Charleston on Saturday.
“We’re gonna be rallying at the Customs House and basically it is what we are calling a ‘Recess Rally,’ and the purpose of that is basically while Congress is in recess, we’re gonna let them know our views on particularly H.R.3200 and any form of health care that they are proposing that’s gonna put the government in charge,” says Parks.
Parks says he expects approximately 500 people to show up at the Customs House. They have a main message they want to get across: “We don’t want government involved in providing health care for us, and we don’t feel they can sustain financial commitment to do it and seeing that everything else they are running pretty much is running in the red,” says Parks.
One of the most outspoken critics of the Obama Administration’s health care plan is Senator Jim DeMint. Parks says he supports DeMint’s plan.
“Senator DeMint’s plan, I like that. It’s a guy that’s looking out for the people and trying to provide something in large part for most Americans, but at the same time, it doesn’t put the government in the driver’s seat,” says Parks.
Recess rallies will be held across the nation Saturday. To go to the one in Charleston or find out more information, log on to http://charlestonteaparty.org/default.aspx.
