Saturday morning, 'Americans for Prosperity Mesa County' will rally for their cause at the Old County Courthouse in Grand Junction.

It's a grassroots coalition of concerned citizens who say they advocate for smaller government, and less government interference in the marketplace.

They say the President's proposal for Healthcare Reforms that's making it's way through Congress limits patient choice, leads to higher costs for taxpayers, reduces healthcare quality, and will create a rationing of services.

Representative Kelly Sloan says the group welcomes debate at the rally, and says the group wants people to know what's in the President's bill.

Friday August 7, the bus will be in Gunnison at Legion Park at 1:45 p.m. The bus will also make a stop in Montrose at 2296 Townsend Avenue at 4:15 p.m. and in Delta on 5th and Main Street at 5:30 p.m.

    How interesting that in your coverage of todays rally the only on camera interview was of a democrat in support of this debacle!Seems like you might have interviewed one or two of the (over 600) attendees opposed? Wonder why there is so much talk of media bias?
