Plain Black T's


The Missouri College Republicans are urging college students across the state to wear black on this week to protest President Obama's healthcare plan.

The demonstration, beginning Tuesday, is part of a reoccurring "Truth Tuesday" events college GOPers plan to hold to show a contrast with Democrats.

Wearing black, according to Missouri College Republican chairman Jonathan Ratliff, will represent how President Obama's plan "will be the death of private control of the health insurance industry."

"The best way to get out you message is through grassroots efforts," Ratliff said in a statement.

On campuses, college Republicans are expected to distribute literature and tie black ribbons or string around wrists of students opposed to the Democratic plans.
