A raucus crowd of Americans descended upon the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol Tuesday afternoon to rally around politicans speaking out against Obamacare.

The 'Exempt America from Obamacare Rally' took place from noon to 2 p.m. Speaking at the event were several politicans, including Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, Texas Senator Ted Cruz and East Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert.

During his speech, Gohmert passionately spoke out agianst Obamacare, likening it to defending American's healthcare rights as if it was the Alamo.

"We cannot take our eyes off what it will mean to the devestation of healthcare in America if we don't do all we can to stop Obamacare from being funded, Gohmert said. " I'm not talking about the illusion of trying to stop Obamacare, I'm talking about taking a stand because remember, I'm from Texas. We have the Alamo in Texas and we believe in taking a stand for liberty."

Throughout his time on the mic, the crowd roared "Yes!" to question after question Gohmert asked aimed at if the government is infringing on their rights.

To finish up his speech, the congressman led a "Yes we can!" chant, referencing a House majority that can keep funding from Obamacare.

Open enrollment for the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, begins on October 1, 2013.

def you should add dumb to your name. It was Ronald Regan that got the law changed where illegals could not be turnd away from the ERs.

Since we all know Obamacare is a trainwreck, even the Democrats say so, then it's time for America to get off the train!

And here is an idea... if the illegals want Obamacare, then let's NOT exempt them. They can pay the fine and get the care. But the fine may have to be high enough to pay for all of their care! Maybe that will make them want to move back to where they came.

Hope and change!
