As Democrats in Congress were ramming their nationalized health care bill through the House tonight, the St. Louis Tea Party Patriots held a funeral for the Victims of Obamacare at Rubber-Stamp Russ Carnahan’s office tonight.

Here’s the News Channel 5 video from our vigil tonight outside of Carnahan’s office:
In St. Louis, people on both sides of the issue gathered to watch the vote. Those in favor of healthcare reform came to celebrate, those opposed came to mourn.
For the Tea Party protesters, it was a somber night. Jim Hoft says, “We’re sad about what’s going on tonight in Washington D.C.”
And so complete with candles and casket, they held a funeral, grieving over the heathcare changes to come.
Hoft says, “We believe they’re taking away our freedom and this represents death to part of what we’ve grown up with.”
And the tears here were very real. Cynthia Rice says, “It’ll change everything for us.”
We carried a casket down to Russ’s office.
