I was visiting with a friend today in front of the SE entrance to the Cannon House Office Building. A group of what appeared to be health care protesters showed up and got in line to enter the building through security. They were clearly on the hill to push for a “strong public option.”
Wait, since they were in support of the bill, does that make them protestors or lobbyists? Anyway, most of them were kids which means they were neither protestors nor lobbyists. They were political props. Some teacher probably brought a class full of kids to the Hill to exploit them for political purposes. I hate seeing kids get exploited like that. You stay classy, teachers unions.
Anyway, one of the adults left their signs outside by the steps. I went over and snapped this picture with my cell phone. Doesn’t it just say everything that needs to be said?
