Before Federal Hearing, Tea Party Patriots and Americans for Prosperity Show Support

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, the Tea Party Patriots, the nation’s largest grassroots organization, announced that Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin will be joining Americans for Prosperity at their rally tomorrow tomorrow in front of the U.S. Courthouse in Richmond, VA in support of Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s challenge to the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.   The rally will take place Tuesday, May 10, to coincide with the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals’ hearing of the case in Richmond.

“We applaud Attorney Gen. Cuccinelli’s staunch refusal to implement the unconstitutional ‘health care reform’ bill,” said Martin.  “His challenge to ObamaCare needs the support of Americans across Virginia and the country.  The 111th Congress passed a job killing, tax raising, liberty stealing law against the will of the American people and the intentions of the Constitution’s drafters, and we anticipate the court will see it as such.”
