A group called "North Dakota Change That Works" met on Broadway in downtown Fargo to march for what it calls policies that prioritize Main Street over Wall Street.

Members of the organization carried signs that were critical of the bailouts of big banks and insurance companies. They say members of congress should be focusing more on small business owners and seniors.

“What we are seeing and hearing is that folks are struggling to make sure they have affordable health care that they have a decent job and our economy might be bouncing back in terms of numbers, but folks that work for a living it is going down and they are more concerned about their kids than ever before.”

"Change That Works North Dakota" is part of a nation wide organization that supports Congress taking action on health care legislation.
