Tea partiers oppose state-run health exchange
San Francisco Chronicle

Tea party protesters gathered outside the state Capitol on Wednesday to call on Republican Gov. Bill Haslam to reject the creation of a state-run health insurance exchange under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. About 300 protesters were joined by a handful of GOP lawmakers and talk radio personalities. Throughout the nearly two-hour rally, protesters chanted “just say no,” and many held signs stating the same.
