Thousands of downtown DC protesters blast Obama

Thousands of demonstrators gather on the plaza near the US Capitol to participate in a "Taxpayer March on DC", protest against President Barack Obama's fiscal and economic policies including the administration's health care reform plans in Washington, September 12, 2009.

Tens of thousands of protesters fed up with government spending marched to the US Capitol on Saturday, showing their disdain for the president's health care plan with slogans such as "Obamacare makes me sick" and "I'm not your ATM."

The line of protesters clogged several blocks near the Capitol, according to the DC Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency. Demonstrators chanted "enough, enough" and "We the People." Others yelled "You lie, you lie!" and "Pelosi has to go," referring to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

Throngs of people waved US flags and held signs reading "Go Green Recycle Congress" and "Obama Bin Lyin.'" Men wore colonial costumes as they listened to speakers who warned of "judgment day" -- Election Day 2010.

Other signs -- reflecting the growing intensity of the health care debate -- depicted President Barack Obama with the signature mustache of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.

Richard Brigle, 57, a Vietnam War veteran and former Teamster, came from Paw Paw, Mich. He said health care needs to be reformed -- but not according to Obama's plan.

"My grandkids are going to be paying for this. It's going to cost too much money that we don't have," he said while marching, bracing himself with a wooden cane as he walked.

FreedomWorks Foundation, a conservative organization led by former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, organized several groups from across the country for what they billed as a "March on Washington."
