Thousands of protestors gathered on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol today and lined up outside House and Senate office buildings to protest Democrats’ health care legislation. The crowd, chanting “Kill the Bill,” “Throw Them Out,” and “Hear us Now,” listened to speeches by Rep. Michelle Bachman, who organized the event, as well as Reps. Tom Price, Eric Cantor, Michael Burgess, John Shaddegg, Marsha Blackburn, Joe Wilson, talk show host Mark Levin, among others. Here’s a sampling of some of the photos I snapped at the event.
Here’s an example of the angry, violent, mob element that dominated the gathering. It’s amazing I made it out of there in one piece without bringing a gun.
This sign was my personal favorite.
After the speeches tailed off, protestors moved to Congressional office buildings to lobby their representatives to oppose Democratic health care legislation, and the lines snaked around the buildings and down the block. Here’s a photo I snapped of one of several entrances to the Cannon House Office Building, all of which were jammed.
