Over 300 health care supporters overwhelm 'tea party' protestors


HCAN Illinois learned of another "tea party" event outside the office of health care supporter Rep. Melissa Bean in Schaumburg, Illinois. HCAN and IMSA leaders, Organizing for America activists, 8th District voters and supporters of health care reform quickly mobilized in response. Over 300 people to show support for Rep. Bean and health care reform. The "tea party" folks and their corporate sponsors only managed to turn out 100 people. Just like we did last week, health care reform supporters outnumbered the anti-reform crowd 3:1.
