As several hundred marched for health care not warfare, a few Bush supporters joined the march. Their agenda was to support US war efforts and the private, for-profit health care system that leaves so many working Americans without health care access.

Pittsburgh's <a href=">Billionaires for Bush were on hand to join the counter protestor ranks. (or was it a counter-counter-protest?)
