Join MRCTV on the West Lawn in front of the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. for coverage of the millions of people -- actually, more like 35 -- marching in the Medicare for All event that took place on Monday afternoon.

The event's Facebook page showed that 346 people planned to attend the protest, while another 2,400 were "interested" in going. The 90 to 100 degree heat must have kept most of the people away, because only about two to three dozen people actually showed up to the event.

The general consensus among the trickle crowd was that everyone in the U.S. should have access to universal health care. Basically, there was a lot of single-payer talk going on.

The unorganized, organized rally seemed to fail to galvanize the small crowd as the usual protest chants rang out from speakers at the podium.

"Health care is a human right," an activist yelled out with tens of people repeating the chant, "not just for the rich and white."

It just wouldn't be a protest without bringing race into the equation.

Stay tuned to MRCTV for coverage from more upcoming events.
