Voices For Health Care At Capitol Rally
Several thousand people rallied in front of the U.S. Capitol June 25 in support of health care reform and heard key Democratic members of Congress vow that they would fight for a public health insurance option as part of that reform.
The rally was the centerpiece of the "Health Care '09: We Can't Wait" lobby day organized by Health Care for America Now! Sens. Sherrod Brown, Robert Menendez and Barbara Mikulski are featured in this video, along with interviews of some rally participants. Several other members of Congress, including Sen. Charles Schumer and Rep. Charles Rangel, participated in the rally.
Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, who recently launched a nationwide petition campaign supported by more than 350,000 people in support of a public health insurance option, was a key speaker at the rally.
