Protests At House Health Care Bill Unveiling

Views

On October 29, House Democrats introduce their health care bill. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said the bill would “deliver on a promise” of remaking American health care for the better. Naturally, tea partiers and other opponents of the bill gathered to make their voices heard.

The protesters appeared to disrupt the Democrats’ announcement slightly, causing Nancy Pelosi to shout: “Thank you, insurance companies of America!”

The tea partiers tried to organize a “flash mob” on short notice, exhorting “Tea Party Patriots” within driving distance of Washington to drive to Congress and protest the decision. The e-mail plea said: “You are the heart and soul of the Tea Party Movement.” TPMDC counted about 10 tea partiers protesting health care on the Capitol steps.
