← return to Water Cooler

A long line of protesters stood outside of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s office today after GOP lawmakers encouraged rally attendees to visit their representatives about the health care bill. There are reports of 10  arrests  according to the Capitol Hill Police. Ms. Pelosi’s office says those arrested were affiliated with the pro-life group Operation Rescue. The speaker’s office also confirmed that pages of the health care bill were torn up in front of her office. The video below taken by the, Washington Times Water Cooler, shows protesters chanting, “kill the bill.” Ms. Pelosi’s Press Secretary, Drew Hammill,  released the following statement:

 

“While the Party of No holds a rally to once again say no, our health insurance reform bill was endorsed by the AARP and the AMA, and on the House floor, we passed bipartisan legislation to create jobs by extending unemployment benefits and extend the homebuyer tax credit We are continuing with our job or passing legislation that will help the American people.”

 

More video to come.
