MoveOn.org, a liberal activist group, plans a rally Thursday at the Woodbury congressional office of U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, focusing on Republican opposition to a proposed extension of federal payroll tax cuts.
It’s not like such an event is going to change her mind on the issue, but organizers hope to energize their base and get some media attention.
An email announcing the rally says they hope to bring “the message of the 99%” to Bachmann’s front door:
With votes on unemployment benefits, Medicare payments, and a Wall Street tax likely before the end of the year, the lines have never been clearer. This final month of 2011 will force every member of Congress to show who they really represent.
The noon rally is part of the group’s national effort to have “speak outs” at local congressional offices around the country.
The invitation to the event at Bachmann’s office, 6043 Hudson Rd., Woodbury, says the plan is to:
“…express our disgust that Washington has done nothing for the struggling majority. We’ll tell Democrats to act like Democrats and fight for Jobs Not Cuts and we’ll expose the GOP’s all-out effort to give tax breaks to millionaires. The more we can force Congress to hear our voices and feel our power the harder it’ll be for them to ignore our demands for change.”
