Rowdy Rally On Health Care Reform

Tempers flared at a rally in opposition to President Obama's health care reform plan.

The group Americans For Prosperity made a stop in Jacksonville Friday as it tours the state. As WITN's Chelsea Donovan tried to interview a supporter of the president's plan, one of the rally participants came over to listen. That's when the two got into a verbal confrontation, calling each other names.

Dallas Woodhouse with Americans for Prosperity says, "The crowds all over eastern Carolina have been enormous. People are fired up about this. It's a deeply personal issue to everybody.

More than 150 people showed up for the Jacksonville rally to show their opposition to government run health care.

Americans for Prosperity will make a stop at Stewart Parkway in Washington at 9:00 a.m. Saturday and then head over for a rally in Greenville in the Arlington Business Park at 11:00 a.m.
