N.C. protesters aim message at Sen. Hagan

Critics of President Barack Obama's efforts to overhaul the health-care system finished an intense week of opposition Friday by picketing the Raleigh district office of Democratic U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan. About 250 people showed up outside the Federal Building on New Bern Avenue in downtown Raleigh on Friday afternoon, carrying placards with such messages as "We the people say no to socialism," "Freedom isn't free and neither is Obamacare" and "Pack your bags Congress, you're fired."
