On Tuesday, August 27th, Tea Party, Pro-Family, and Christian leaders will speak with a united voice outside Speaker Boehner's district office in Troy, Ohio from 4:00-6:00 p.m. to "Pull the Plug" on Obamacare.
"If the Speaker doesn't use the power of the purse to stop Obamacare it will forever be known as 'Boehnercare.' If he funds it, he will own it," said Janet Porter, President of Faith2Action.
Speakers at the rally include:
- Former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell

- The original "Pull the Plug" song will also be performed at the rally.
"The Speaker needs to listen to his base instead of liberal Democrats and the media who will never support him,' said Lori Viars, Vice President of Warren County Right to Life. "Congress controls the purse strings, and Republicans control Congress. Speaker Boehner has the power to stop Obamacare; we are calling on him to use it."
"Symbolic votes against Obamacare are great, but now it's time to pull the plug on funding the monstrosity that threatens our lives and livelihoods." said Ken Blackwell.
"The citizens of Ohio have spoken loudly and clearly by passing the Healthcare Freedom Amendment: keep Obamacare out of Ohio!" added Beth Cox, of the Preble County Liberty Group.
