OK, nobody brought a gun and nobody got their finger bitten off, so the media may not cover it, but there was a very successful rally in support of health care reform in downtown Boston this morning and we’ve got video to prove it. Led by our fearless leader Charley a group of your BMG friends turned out to take part. NECN says over 1000 turned out and that sounds about right from what I saw.
It was pretty obvious that most folks in the crowd were in favor of the public option. This really became clear when US Representative Lynch was ‘lobbied’ fairly strongly when it was his turn to speak.
