Health Care Protest at Colorado Capitol

July 28, 2009 - 3:07 PM | by: Faith Mangan

Just back from covering Hands Off My Health Care protest at steps of the Colorado State Capitol in Denver. Groups opposed to government-run health care held the rally. Organizers included the Americans for Prosperity and the conservative think tank Independence Institute. They served hot dogs to folks attending the lunch hour event. Country tunes blared from loudspeakers before people took to the podium, some with very personal stories. My rough estimate, it was a crowd of 200 people. The first speaker said, “We can get the darn lawyers out of health care.” Another speaker said to ask, “How is the health care that the government already runs?”, referring to Medicare and Medicaid.
