Americans from throughout the country gathered yesterday in the Upper Senate Park in Washington D.C. as Americans for Prosperity hosted a "Hands Off My Health Care" rally to protest the national health care bill.
Among the 4,000 who attended was a busload of 35 people from Carbon County, many of whom are members of the Lehighton 9/12 Project.
In all, there were 16 busloads of people from Pennsylvania at the rally. The buses were sponsored by AFP.
Sandy Dellicker, president of the Lehighton 9/12 Project, organized the local group's participation at the event.
