Remember in the fall when President Obama came to Fairfax to campaign for the failed statewide Democrat ticket? He basically told everyone who disagreed with him to "shutup." Funny how things turn around. The public is disagreeing with him now, and very loudly, saying "No!" to his scheme of a government takeover of our health care system. Now, he's coming back to Fairfax — tomorrow. Just in time for us to disagree with him, again — and hopefully with the same degree of success he had the last time. This just in from our friends at Americans For Prosperity and its Virginia director, Ben Marchi:

President Obama will speak in Fairfax tomorrow (Friday) at at George Mason University’s Patriot Center — get directions here. Doors open at 9:00 a.m.

The White House says, "There are no tickets needed for this event, just show up." So we're going to. If you want to get inside for the rally, you will likely need to get there early and stand in line. If you want to bring signs to send your message outside the arena, be aware that if you want to go inside afterwards, "no signs or banners are permitted, and those who come are encouraged to limit personal items and not bring bags or purses," according to the White House Web site.

Then on Saturday, tea party groups from across the nation are coming together to send a resounding "KILL THE BILL" to Capitol Hill. Let's join them and say "Hands Off My Health Care"!

Saturday at Noon in Upper Senate Park — AFP President Tim Phillips will be speaking along with others. If you can get there earlier, some tea party groups will be rallying starting at 10 a.m. on the East Lawn of the Capitol. For a Capitol Hill map, click here.

Please note: If you're driving into Washington, D.C., on Saturday, take note of road closures due to the National Marathon. A list of closures and when roads will re-open is available here.

This is crunch time! Look forward to seeing you there!

Ben Marchi

State Director
