Healthcare protest 

Thousands of people, led by WSB Talk show Host Herman Cain, came to Atlanta's Olympic Park to protest Obama's health care plans. Waving American flags and holding signs calling Obama a dictator, health care advocates socialists and equating government health care with certain
death for Americans, the Tea Party crowd continued its offensive against the Obama administration. Many members of the crowd bragged to this reporter about not having health insurance. One member of the panel even went so far as to argue that life expectancy was a poor
judge of a country's health care. One hundred percent of the people interviewed were pro government spending billions of dollars on war but against government spending billions of dollars on healthcare.
