Sorry - I couldn't be there but wonder if Mitch Stewart will explain why Obama has totally wimped out on health care reform. I am deeply disappoint how Obama has sold us out to the Drug Companies and how he seems ready to cave on the public option.

Sorry I was unable to attend. I feel the healthcare scam is just another step to take away freedom and liberty. Why are the so-called representatives supporting it? It has to be money. If the supposed leaders in Washington support obama then they must be getting something for it. The careless, outrageous spending is meant to take away everything we have fought for from the beginning

I went to the rally and it was so packed the crowd spilled out into another area. The speakers were great . I really liked what Senator Dede Feldman had to say plain and simple so anyone could understand.
People were rallying for a reform plan WITH a public option and the OFA people were too. Now we have to all get out and convince everyone we know on the facts and get this passed.
