Last night’s protest: Health care rally at Sen. Brownback’s office

A crowd gathered outside U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback’s office yesterday evening with a seemingly simple request: They want access to the same health care coverage their tax dollars provide the Kansas lawmaker.

Buoyed by debate in Congress about health care reform and the addition of a public option for private citizens, several dozen demonstrators gathered at the corner of 95th Street and Nieman Road in Overland Park. Each had their own experiences that, they say, make a government-sponsored insurance program a common-sense solution to the nation’s health care crisis.
