10,000 Rally Against Obamacare
Posted November 5th, 2009 at 12.56pm | Heritage.org
U.S. CAPITOL WEST STEPS - Last Thursday a call went out from talk radio to conservatives to gather today, at noon, for a press conference on Obamacare.
Over 10,000 people have shown up so far to raise their concerns about the health care discussions currently under way. We are halfway in the middle of the crowd and can barely see podium with all the signs, people, and flags. These protesters are fired up.
Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) opened the event. Followed by an opening prayer, the pledge of allegiance and the anthem. Actors Jon Voight and John Ratzenberger (Cliff from Cheers) have also spoke. Best selling author Mark Levin detailed the problems with the current health care bill, telling the crowd, “Freedom is only one generation from extinction.”
Again, that’s 10,000 people in just seven days.
