LI tea party protest criticizes health reform
Some Long Islanders took part in a tea party-inspired rally along Route 25A in Setauket Saturday.
Many in attendance say the recent health care reform legislation signed by President Barack Obama was a clear example of government overstepping its bounds. Activists like Bette Lavars, of Ronkonkoma, say Democrats who supported the health care bill should be ousted from their positions.
Meanwhile, an anti-war protest was simultaneously held across the road. Protesters like Jerry Reinhold-Shor, of Port Jefferson, applauded the health care bill and called the tea party argument "misinformed."
