Obama holds health-care pep rally in Fairfax
Thousands of people rallied loudly for passage of health-care legislation in Northern Virginia today as President Obama tried one final time to demonstrate public support for the health-care bill that is moving toward a Sunday afternoon vote in Congress.
In an old-fashioned pep rally that consciously recalled the final days of Obama's presidential campaign, a crowd of mostly students packed the Patriot Center at George Mason University to hear the president deliver a feisty closing argument for what he called a "fateful debate" that has been raging for a century.
