Thousands crowd Capitol Hill to protest health bill

Shouting "Kill the bill" and "You're fired!" thousands of sign-waving demonstrators thronged the grounds of the US Capitol Thursday to oppose landmark health care legislation put forward by Democrats.

Under banners deriding "Obamacare" as a step towards socialist medicine and proclaiming "Give me liberty, not debt," protesters loudly cheered leading Republican legislators who stood on the Capitol steps.

The Republicans vowed to try and shoot down the bill aimed at providing care to millions of uninsured but slammed by conservatives as fiscal recklessness.
