On Saturday, July 18, Chattanooga area citizens will join thousands of other concerned citizens in hundreds of cities across America to protest a government takeover of our health care system.
The protest will take place outside the Federal Building in Downtown Chattanooga, across from Miller Park, from noon to 1 p.m.
“We want to communicate to our elected officials in a bold and unified voice that we oppose any sort of government-run health care system,” said Mark West, spokesman for the Chattanooga Tea Party organization. “A large majority of Americans have health insurance coverage through hundreds of insurance companies, which have had to compete for that business. A so-called “public option” will force most of these companies out of business and will inevitably lead to health care rationing, which happens in every other country with a government-run system.”
Date: Saturday, July 18
Time: Noon to 1 p.m.
