Voters Protest Sunday's Health Care Vote

Ad Feedback

Voters have been gathering in Washington, D.C., all week to protest health care reform legislation being worked out on Capitol Hill.

The demonstrations are expected to continue over the weekend ahead of Sunday's vote.

Capitol switchboard operators are fielding roughly 40,000 calls per hour from constituents voicing their opinion on the bill-- 10 times the number of calls that usually come in.

Radio host Janet Parshall told CBN's Pat Robertson that many members of Congress are not paying attention to what the voters are saying.

"This idea that we don't care what you want, this putting their fingers in their ears and not listening to the people, in the end, Pat, is going to cost them their jobs," Parshall said. "And here's why they want to vote this weekend. They want to push this through so fast."

"This is March. You don't vote until November. You'll be busy, you'll forget, the amnesia factor," she continued. "This is symptomatic of a whole philosophy of governance and just because they've done this with health care doesn't mean they won't do it again and again and again, and when they do, it's putting their own jobs at risk."
