Cold weather can't stop health care rallies

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA--Frigid temperatures couldn't stop some people from voicing their opinions on possible health care reform.

A small group of reform supporters ended Saturday's rally in Chesterley Park with cries of "health care now!"

A few blocks away, conservatives stumped against proposed changes.

One person says he braved the cold weather for people, not for politics.

"I just consider it a basic right that if somebody is sick, if their child is sick, they can take their child to the doctor and not worry about it bankrupting their family," Jim Engel said.

Saturday's rally coincided with several others around the state in places like Seattle, Olympia and Spokane.
