Bill Pullen leads the crowd in songs “This Land” and his own “Roll the Movement On.”

“What kind of country treats their people this way?” A few hundred pro-reformers gathered in front of Diane Feinstein’s L.A. offices as part of a nationwide candlelight vigil for health care reform. Among the crowd were about ten confederate anti-reform disruptors who attempted to use bullhorns and signs, but were stopped by police who maintained courtesy for protesters on both sides of the issue. The ten or so confederates waved anti-Obama and ant-socialism signs and made a lot of noise in an apparent attempt to make the rally of a few hundred appear as an anti-reform rally. But they were drowned out by the pro-reformers and songs bringing the reformers together.

L.A. City Councilman Bill Rosendahl called out Feinstein by name demanding that she go along with the public option. Dr. Alice Chen spoke of the Hippocratic oath that states doctors should take care of the sick above all in a fair and just manner. Other victims of health care insurance testified to their plights.
