R News: Hundreds Rally Against Bush Plan

by Kate Welshofer

More than 1,200 people gathered in downtown Rochester to protest President Bush’s social security plan.

A rally was held inside and outside of the First Universalist Church. It was organized by the In This Together Campaign: New Yorkers United to Protect Social Security. It began after Mr. Bush left Rochester, but those involved say they're more interested in getting their message out to the general public.

Amy Schramm of Rochester explained, "I think he already knows that a lot of people don't like him, but I think that we're trying to get across to the other Americans who still might believe it what he says."

"We want the public to get activated and become concerned about the possible ramifications of changing the program the way the President wants to change it," said Carol Brown, who is on the Working Families Party board of directors.

Carol says they also hope to reach lawmakers, especially Republican members of Congress who may be behind Bush’s plan.

Thanks, Amy
