Protestors in Place for Obama Visit to MSU

While some many come to East Lansing hoping to catch at least a glimpse of the President of the United States, not all who’ll be on hand near the event at Michigan State University will there to praise Mr. Obama.

Members of the group “Americans for Prosperity-Michigan” have scheduled a protest of the President’s speech,at the McPhail Equine Performance Center this afternoon.  They’ll be demonstration with signs that claim the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, is a “destructive power” in the country.

The protest is planned at the corner of Bogue and Wilson in East Lansing beginning at 1:30.  The President is scheduled to speak at the university shortly after 2 p.m.

The group has also taken issue with the Obama administration and members of Congress for what they call “uncontrolled” spending.  They are pushing congressional candidates who are willing to take on the healthcare law and repeal it.

A key race could involve Carl Levin’s seat in the Senate.  Republican Terri Lynn Land, who is ahead in most polls over likely democratic challenger and current U. S. Representative Gary Peters, could affect the balance of power in Congress.
