Protest at Ron Klein’s Office
The joint rally, promoted by South Florida 9-12, South Florida Tea Party, and DC Works for Us, drew about 70 or so anti-Obamacare activists from 4:00pm to after 5, in front of Ron Klein’s office on Glades road in Boca Raton.
Another 20 or so pro-Obamacare folks also showed up, many with preprinted slick graphics and Organizing for America tee shirts. There were some with hand made signs though – maybe a sign that the left isn’t totally astroturf. For the most part they seemed a demoralized lot, but there was occasional singing heard from that end of the street.
Shannon gave an interview to Channel 12 news, and quite a few of the participants made the trek up to the Congressman’s second floor office to sign the register and write down their personal plea to “kill the bill” or “start over again”. At the start of the rally, there was a single police car, growing to 3-4 before 5:00 rolled around and they started preventing people from entering the building. Everyone was nice though, and there was no unpleasantness (that I saw) between the groups.
