Protesters Chant ‘Shame!’ And ‘Kill The Bill!’ Ahead Of Health Care Vote

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) tried for one final appeal to his GOP colleagues in an effort for them to vote against the bill. After he exited the floor, cries of “Kill the bill, don’t kill us!” and “Shame! Shame! Shame!” came in from the visitor galleries.

The cacophonous shouting continued for a few minutes, eventually leading some protesters to be escorted out while others were arrested, according to HuffPost’s Jennifer Bendery. Additionally, reporters were kept away from the visitor galleries and were told to delete their photos. 

The chant “Kill the bill! Don’t kill me!” has been used by disability advocates in regards to the health care bill for the past few month.
