Houstonians against President Obama's health care plan held a Tea Party at the University of Houston.The event started with a crack at Democrats who've referred to noisy protesters at town hall meetings as mobs. Republican Representative Kevin Brady of the Woodlands was one of the speakers on Saturday's event.

"There's virtually no one in America that won't be affected by this reform. And the biggest worry we have is that government will decide what doctors we can choose, what treatments they think we deserve and what medicines we can get," said Rep. Brady.

Brady told the crowd of several hundred people the current bill would lead to more taxes and threaten private insurers.
