Do you think that I an American citizen, that any and I emphasize "any" politician cares about your health? If you agree that the answer is NO, then they must be motivated for some other reason.

The crowd size estimate by the Washington DC fire department was 60,000 to 70,000.Matt Kibbe, president of FreedomWorks, the group that organized the event falsely claimed that ABC News had reported over 1 million people and ABC put out a statement that they had NEVER made such an estimate. However, some people picked on the rumor, over the facts, including Spencerblog.The crowds were in the "tens of thousands". Not hundreds of thousands nor over a million.Here is the statement from ABC Newshttp://abcnews.go.com/Politics/protest-crowd-size-estimate-falsely-attributed-abc-news/story?id=8558055
