ALBANY, GA (WALB) – As the debate continues on Capitol Hill over healthcare reform, several people turned out in Albany Saturday to protest the bill.

A little more than two dozen people showed up outside Congressman Sanford Bishop's office in Albany to send a message to their congressman to kill the bill.

Bishop has already said he will vote yes on reforming the healthcare system.

The group carried signs saying 'Boot Bishop' to warning the congressman about the impact this vote could have on his political career.

"We have the momentum and the energized base, he does not and I think he'll lose in November for this," said Mike Sabot, Protester.

"Vote no, just vote no, vote what your people want you to do, vote against it," said Kathy Young, Protester.

The group moved from in front of congressman Bishop's office to a rally at Veterans Park Amphitheater where he was scheduled to speak.
