If millions take to the street in DC will Obama make the same call he made about Egypt?

A famous U.S. televangelist is urging Americans to take an example from Egyptians who ousted former President Mohamed Morsi and “rise up” to stop Obamacare.
“You know they revolted in Egypt against the oppressive actions of the Muslim Brotherhood, and this example of state socialism is something that Americans should rise up against,” Pat Robertson said Wednesday on the “700 Club,” referring to President Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
He added, “They snuck that thing by us.”
Then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi called for passage of Obamacare, declaring, “[W]e have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.”
In December 2009, the legislation passed the Senate 60-39, with not one Republican vote. In the House, the vote was 219-212, with 34 Democrats joining 178 Republicans in opposition.
In 2009, conservative pundit Michelle Malkin published a list of “payoffs and last-minute backroom deals” that led to the legislation’s passage.
