Republican lawmakers are hoping to re-ignite the town hall fury that inflamed the health care debate and nearly derailed the legislation over the summer.
GOP representatives are holding town halls in the next two weeks to rally opposition to President Obama's sweeping health care legislation that narrowly passed the House last weekend. A different version of the bill is now wending its way through the Senate.
"The legislative battle over health care reform is not over," House Republicans have scheduled several town hall meetings and Senate Republicans have planned at least 50 in the next two weeks, including one Thursday night to be hosted by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
Republican senators certainly want to hear from a wide variety of Americans," Simpson said.
But the tea party activists are urging supporters to attend any town halls hosted by Democratic lawmakers.
"Bring as many people with you as you can and be the first ones to ask a question," the Tea Party Patriots advised on its Web site. "Fill up as many seats as possible! Ask tough, specific questions about health care and put the politician on the spot."
