congress, including 2 of our very own U.S. Representatives. The third
Representative voted "No" against the bill, but not for the reason you might
think. Several New Mexico Tea Parties are sponsoring a Rally at the Roundhouse
on May 12th to petition Attorney General Gary King to file a
lawsuit on behalf of New Mexico. Thanks to the efforts of Sheryl
Bohlander of the Santa Fe Tea Party, Char Tierney and Therese Cooper of the
East Mt. Tea Party, Sylvia Bokor of the Albuquerque Tea Party, and so many
others. A petition that was started shortly after the horrendous healthcare
bill passed, and was signed my many citizens at many of the Tax Day Rallies and
other events, will be presented at the Rally at the Roundhouse.
of the seriousness of this issue and because it has been said that this
Rally is being sponsored by all the Tea Parties of New
Mexico, we encourage each of you to join all of us in doing everything
you can to bring as many people as you possibly can to the Roundhouse on
May 12th by 10:30 AM. We know that the citizens of New Mexico are largely
against this bill, and therefore it is the perfect opportunity to reach out to
people who have never attended a Tea party event. There is a carpool being started
from two locations in our local area. For more information regarding both
East Mt and Albuquerque area carpooling, please call 505-269-6684.

Albuquerque, from 11:05 to 11:20 AM, on Monday, May 10th to discuss this
issue. This is a topic of national interest, so hopefully your local
media will agree to cover it.

posted on YouTube. Direct descendent of Patrick Henry, Therese Cooper,
