BX residents protest health care bill

Some Bronx residents joined together today to show their displeasure with President Barack Obama?s health care overhaul.

Protesters say they lined up in front of Rep. Joe Crowley's (D- N.Y.) office because he voted in favor of the health care bill.

Many protesters were senior citizens who said they were concerned about what the bill will mean for Medicare and their coverage as they get older.

Crowley said he welcomed the input of thousands of Bronx residents during the health care debate and will continue to seek their opinions.
