NBC Washington reports:

A rally is being organized for today at the Cannon House Office Building with hopes of swaying Congress not to pass President Barack Obama’s health care plan. According to the FreedomWorks Web site, the event is called “The People’s Surge Against Obamacare 2.0.”
At 9 a.m., they will “storm” the three House office buildings. The group is planning to meet at Cannon Building, and they will disperse from there. According to the site, the event is expected to last until 6 p.m.

The Heartland Institute said it is holding a rally "to kill Obamacare" at Taft Park at 10 a.m., with numerous speakers, including Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.).

The Daily Caller:

Tea Party activists will storm Capitol Hill this morning, spending the day rallying and protesting against President Obama’s health-care bill and demanding meetings with targeted members. Former Republican leader Dick Armey, whose FreedomWorks is an organizer of the day’s events, said the Tea Partiers will be a reminder to members that a vote for health care could doom them in the polls in November.

“The fact of the matter is these folks — they got Nancy Pelosi saying, ‘You either give me your vote or something bad is going to happen to you,’ and … real voters in their district saying, ‘You give Nancy Pelosi that vote and something worse is going to happen to you,” Armey told The Daily Caller, referencing members of congress weighing their decision.

Stay tuned for updates on today's protests.
