After a devastating day of disappointment and disgust at Bart Stupak's traiterous act, the people in Michigan's 9th district pulled themselves up and joined Rocky Raczkowski after only a short 4 hours notice at Peters' office in Troy. It was a cold and windy day, but that did not deter the 200 + protesters.

In Rocky's short speech we learned that this bill has a terrible effect on the veterans and their tri-care coverage. In short, the people that gave the most to their country and the seniors who paid  the most in will get the biggest cuts. 
Rocky then used his cell to call Peters' office in DC and told Peters' aide (of course Peters was not available) to give him a message that the people in the 9th think they were sold out and misrepresented and are out there protesting.  At that point Rocky waved his arm and we all used the whistles provided to us and blew loud and clear.  The message couldn't have been any louder or clearer.

I believe in Rocky when he says that "Together, we can fix this! The 219-212 vote tonight for government-run health care is not the end. There is hope, and the first step is beating Gary Peters and winning a conservative majority in the U.S. House of Representatives."

Join Rocky at http://www.rockyworksforus.com/ and let's all fight this together.  There is power in numbers.
