Second House Call: Steve King Wants Another Protest Against Health Bill

Because the first one apparently didn't do it, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) issued a statement today calling for a second "House Call" protest against health care reform. The conservative congressman is summoning Americans to come to Capitol Hill again on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. to "kill PelosiCare."

King lauds the first "House Call" protest crafted in part by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), saying, "Nancy Pelosi and Washington liberals cannot ignore what transpired yesterday in Washington. Americans from every state stormed Capitol Hill."

King boasts, "We can kill this bill and stop the government takeover of health care. We need the help of every American willing to stand up for freedom and liberty. I urge all Americans who oppose this bill to come to Washington tomorrow morning and join us to stop this bill."

King has been a fervent adversary of health care reform, despite the fact that 83,000 individuals in his Iowa district remain uninsured.
