Americans for Prosperity put on the rally as part of their “Hands off my Healthcare Tour.”  Americans for Prosperity is a conservative organization that works for limited government.

 

Several guest speakers were on hand at the rally including a foreign war veteran, a breast cancer survivor, and several others.  The keynote speaker was Congresswoman Virginia Foxx.

 

At one point in her speech, Foxx said, “The democrats are always so keen on women choosing to kill their unborn child, but in other areas they don’t want us to decide.”

 

Residents in attendance were asked to sign a petition against President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform package, call Senator Kay Hagan and tell her not to support the bill, and to tell others about the movement.
