The Make America Happen bus stopped in Shreveport yesterday. The group is touring the country promoting ObamaCare. Make America Happen is part of AFSCME which is American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, which is part of the AFL-CIO; no surprise that they support ObamaCare.
There were some local politicians in attendance at the Highway2HealthCare bus stop at County Market in Shreveport yesterday; Representative Barbara Norton was there (she's also the godmother of Hurricane Chris and introduced him in the Louisiana legislature earlier this summer) and City Councilman Joe Shyne. Shyne was convicted in federal court of extortion in the early 1990s and later pardoned by Governor Mike Foster.
The Highway for Healthcare Now website says, "AFSCME is part of Health Care for America Now (HCAN), a national grassroots campaign of more than 950 organizations in 46 states representing 30 million people dedicated to winning quality, affordable health care we all can count on in 2009. Our organization and principles are supported by President Obama, Vice President Biden, and more than 190 members of Congress."
