Organizing For Action Rallies Outside Fleischmann Office

Friday, October 4, 2013

Organizing for Action – Tennessee volunteers gathered outside Rep. Chuck Fleischmann’s office in downtown Chattanooga on Friday "to delviver the message to House Republicans to stop sabotaging our economy and putting their politics before our people just to take health care away from millions of Americans." 

Chattanooga native, 73-year-old retired public school administrator and U.S. Navy veteran, Franklin McCallie, said, “Congressman Fleischmann, shutting down the government just because you didn’t get your way on ObamaCare isn’t a negotiation. That’s not negotiating. It’s holding our economy hostage just to take health care away for millions of Americans. Who does that? That’s now not how our elected leaders should act.

"Tennessee constituents have had enough of the political partisan games that led to this federal government shutdown. The irresponsible choices of a group of congressional Republicans hurt hard working Americans, veterans, military families and our economy. This recklessness is beneath what Americans expect from their elected officials, and they’ve rightly had enough."
