Faces at Health Care Rallys


Today, men and women from around the nation joined forces in cities, towns and suburbs to voice their support for, or support against, health care reform.

Following is a from the Orlando, Florida, Democratic rally in front of Sen. Bill Nelson’s office:

Men, women, blacks, whites, nurses, physicians, rich, poor…all united with a single purpose – affordable health care for all Americans.

Here’s a rally organized by the Republican Party of Arizona the other day:

Lots of men, a few women. No minorities.

Of course, Republicans don’t want the President and Congress to pass a health care initiative. They don’t want health care for Americans.  They want to stop and delay the legislative process.

Sen. Jim DeMint (R), South Carolina:

“If we’re able to stop Obama on this, it will be his Waterloo. It will break him.”

So. Where are the Republican proposals regarding health care? Are there any?

No. They have nothing but pretty white, male spokespeople who admit their party “has no plan“.

    • It isn’t a race issue?

      Think again. Race is very much an issue. As is income level. However, my point is that a better cross-section of Americans favor health care reform as opposed to Republican upper middle class and rich white males and females who aren’t affected by what others are facing and thus don’t understand the implications of a lack of affordable health care.
