US protests over Obama's health reform

By Super Admin

Washington, Sep 13: More than ten thousand people marched from the shadow of the White House on Saturday, Sep 13 to protest against President Barack Obama's health care plans.

They carried hand-painted posters with slogans decrying Obama's proposed health care reforms, or accusing the Democratic administration of leading the United States down the road to socialism.

The march, coordinated by Freedomworks, a grassroots movement calling for lower taxes, less government and more economic freedom for all Americans, drew demonstrators from across the United States.

Police at the Capitol were unable to say how many people had turned out for the rally, but at mid-afternoon, the crowd stretched out of sight from the legislature and onto the National Mall, sources said.
