Protesters shouted and screamed at each other during a rally for President Barack Obama's proposed health care plan Saturday, but it all ended peacefully in Republic Square Park.
The rally began at 1 p.m. at the AFL-CIO building on Lavaca Street near 11th Street with speakers in favor of the proposed plan, including state Sen. Kirk Watson, D-Austin, and U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Austin, talking inside while an overflow crowd stood at the building's entrance.
Across the street, many protesters held signs that read "No government healthcare." One sign read: "American dream or American nightmare?"
A protester, yelled across the street at some of the supporters. "I don't want to pay for your health care" .
I don't even want to pay for the healthcare of my fellow Americans, let alone people who don't even legally live in this country.
